It was such a lovely day and I am so happy to share some great photos. Let me start out by saying that the weather was AMAZING. The day from start to finish was fabulous, lazy, fun, and special. I felt very loved and enjoyed spending time with my family and my Mom!
When I first came downstairs this was my giant card :)
On top of my card I also had a beautiful vase filled with an "add ice" orchid. Ever since I saw Patrick's parents have one of these I've always wanted one. I hadn't gotten one yet because they are fairly pricey. The color is gorgeous and all I have to do is put three ice cubes in the vase once a week and they are good to go.
I don't think I screw this plant up. We shall see ;)
My mom always picks great cards like this one! For Mother's Day, my Mom got a special gift from us as well. It's funny, because when I buy a present for someone, I am NO good at waiting to give it to them on a special day. I want to give it to them right then and there. So...we did - we gave my Mom her gift on Saturday :)
Preston picked out a giant balloon for her and we also gave her the Grandmother figurine from Willow Tree. She is an amazing Mom to my brother and I - and an even more amazing Grandmother to Preston. We are all so lucky!
Patrick cooked a huge breakfast for us that included french toast, grits, bacon, and cheesy scrambled eggs. We all enjoyed a hardy, southern breakfast!
Because the weather was so nice - it was off to the playground! There is an awesome playground at a local park in Downtown Fredericksburg that is perfect for a toddler and is also in the shade. It was either go shopping downtown or let Preston run off some steam and take some awesome pictures.
I chose the latter :) I love taking photos and trying to be artistic - so this was just another chance for me to document some wonderful memories.
Forget the baby swing, Preston only wanted to be in the big boy swing. I made sure Daddy was planted right behind him for safety.
But just look at how much fun he had!
Seriously!? One of my favorites from the day!
Can we say "frame this!"? Preston just wanted to run for a lot of the time we were outside. He was so carefree and having a blast. He loved running back and forth in between Grammy and I.
There is nothing as sweet and precious as this relationship!
Next, Preston picked me a few buttercup flowers :)
It's the little things that makes a Mom of an almost two year old feel amazing.
Just a fun picture.
After our playground adventure we headed home for Preston's nap, watched a movie, and this Mommy got some down time.
I am so lucky to be able to call myself a Mom. But it's even more amazing that I am a Mom to an incredible son.
Thank you so much to my family for making me feel special all the time - not just on Mother's Day!
