Mother's Day Retreat

We went to the cabin for Mother's Day and it was Heavenly.
 The kids were so excited and enjoyed every minute. And, of course, a favorite is always reading the gross things in the Fear Factor book and the amazing things in Ripley's Believe it or Not.
 I escaped to enjoy a little sun on my face in the hammock.
 And was joined by Paige.

 And then Morgan.
 We made a fire for some serious marshmallow roasting.
 And had the perfect opportunity to get a picture of the 2 moms.
 And the people that make Mother's Day possible.
 We tried to get a picture of the amazing sun behind us. Didn't work out too well.

 And Luke and Kim decided to do the cheesy heart/sun thing. Ahhh.
After all the picture taking the fire was just perfect for roasting marshmallows and making smores.

 The next day, actually Mother's Day, Kim and I wanted to take a nap so Luke took all the kids and made a fort. It has a door and roof and is the perfect size for these hoodlams. Oliver was there, but he wanted no part of the picture.

After the cabin we went straight to my parents house for dinner and I got to spend the evening with one of the best moms around.
Happy Mother's Day to all! I have so many amazing mothers to look up to and learn from. Hope you all had a great day!
