Mother’s Day Present

May 13, 2010

We celebrated Mother’s Day early this year.  And every year, I ask for the same thing for Mother’s Day . . . a trip to the zoo and a picture of me and Kasen.  Well, this year, it was a picture of me with my TWO children (doesn’t that sound great?!). :D  Remember, Holden wasn’t here yet last year. ;)  Well, we accomplished one of those pics, the one with Kasen.  We could have tried harder for the picture of me and Holden, but it was too hard to get him out of his stroller because he NEVER wanted back in.  Sooooo, I’ll settle for one out of two . . . . and I’m quite happy with the one!  Well, actually, Brad took several of pics of the two of us while we were feeding the birds.  That was so much fun.  Even though I don’t enjoy the birds, I’m getting better, only because it makes Kasen so crazy happy.  These birds were little and sweet too, until they started pecking at each other because they were fighting over the food.  That’s exactly what they are doing in the bottom left picture and as you can see, we thought it was rather funny. ;)

Kasen could not have been more thrilled, she was just bouncing through the zoo.  She kept saying, “I’m just so excited.  I’m just so excited.” LOL   Every thing is an adventure in a four year old’s eyes.  It was just a gorgeous day, beautiful cool weather, not too hot, not too cold.  Perfect.  It was a good thing we went on Saturday because Sunday was rainy and grey.

We had the added pleasure of Brad’s parents going to the zoo with us this year.  We thought it was a great Mother’s Day present for Mae Mae too. :)  Then we took everybody out to eat afterwards and just enjoyed being with family.  That’s the BEST part anyway, spending the day with those you love.  What great memories and what a beautiful early Mother’s Day we had.
