Happy Mother's Day!

We spent a lot of time outdoors this weekend.  The sun was finally shining (see this post).  We went to the park Saturday morning and let Lincoln run around, jump off of things for an audience, go down the big slides and hike through some tall grass :)  It was a lot of fun and he was exhausted afterwards.

He kept running down this bridge thing and jumping off the edge...people started watching after the 3rd or 4th time and he started getting tired and would start face planting but never crying or getting hurt. 

After naps (yes he and I both napped while daddy went to buy sand for the sandbox) we played in his "new to him" sandbox

....while I played around with my camera and outdoor lighting.

Someone got hungry and decided to try the'd that work out for ya bud?

This little boy makes me so happy.  I am so lucky to be his momma and have the opportunity to stay at home with him.  I love it, I love him, I love our life.  I don't ever want to take any day for granted. 

Today I am so thankful for MY momma on Mother's Day.  It's because of her that I am who I am today.  She taught me so much and I continually look up to her.  

And while it's a holiday that many smile, it's also a day where others are brought to tears.  My prayer is that you feel a peace that surpasses all understanding today. 


  1. Amen to that last sentence. I'm so happy you soaked it all in!

    Happy Mother's Day Marie!
