This may sound strange, but I spent Sunday morning without Parker! Church was in need of volunteers for children's programming so I subbed for both services. It felt nice to serve other moms. After church I went to my parents house. Jimmy met us there later after work. We took a ride in the workman (see below.) I am so glad summer is coming! I love heading out to my parents and enjoying a tiny bit of country!
My gift was wonderful (albeit a necessary purchase.) A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I was in a car accident. My car was totaled so we were on the hunt for a new vehicle! Lucky for us, we have been shopping for a while, anticipating upgrading in the next year. We found a great deal on the model were were eyeing up (even a year earlier than planned!) It is a Chevy Equinox. We knew that it would be ideal to have a larger vehicle with more cargo room if or when we had another baby (no, this is not a pregnancy announcement!) I really love it!
My mom gilled chicken and we just had fun hanging out! My mom and I weren't super close growing up, but our adult years have brought us closer. I really appreciate everything she does for me and my family (personally and professionally - I work with her too!) I realized I have far too few pictures of her and I together. I feel like I could have gone through years of photos and not found one. So I grabbed the picture from my wedding.
After we got home I found a sweet card from Parker (from daycare.) It put a great cap on a wonderful day!
Happy (belated) Mother's Day to all you mommies out there! I hope you got some love from you little (or big) ones!
