The best way to celebrate Mother’s Day? Time with the three most important men in my life and…a 2 1/2 hour nap!

After church, we ate at Braeda (moms eat free on Mother’s Day!) with good friends and then headed to the zoo!
It was a little cool but that didn’t put a damper on our fun!

Jeremiah finally warmed up to the idea of feeding the goats. I’ve been trying to get him to do that for the longest time!

Jeremiah had fun exploring on foot – he didn’t last very long in the wagon! This spider web was a good place to climb – but he just sat most of the time 🙂

And forget any fancy rides or toys for these kids! Jeremiah and his buddies Emma and Sam thought sitting in this dinosaur egg was awesome!

The zoo had lots of fun stuff for Mother’s Day but, of course, the free train rides were the highlight of the day, especially for Jeremiah!

Joshua was a little cuddlebug with Daddy on the ride!

And Jeremiah sat by his “girlfriend” Emma. Stephen is already planning their wedding 🙂

Mother’s Day this year reminded me that, even in the midst of temper tantrums and diaper blowouts, I am the luckiest woman in the world because these two boys love me and call me Mom. I thank God everyday for blessing me with them and a wonderful husband who is also an amazing dad.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you beautiful women out there!
