I had a nice mom's day. The kids and I had a pretty tough morning (daddy pulled out of town for his out-of-state move, and the kids were a bit unraveled by it at first). So we decided to make it a good rest-of-the-day and enjoy each other's company. I continued with my mom's day tradition started last year and took some photos of me and the kids. I did some playing around with special effects on them, and I think they turned out kinda cute for self-portraits. A couple of them ended up with Hallie being cut off (oops, love ya Hal), but other than that, not too bad.
We also decided to take a drive to Patagonia and play at the dinky little park there. It was all fun and games until---you guessed it--Hallie did a lip drag on the play equipment and it was time to pack it up and head home. She took a nasty spill and was pretty traumatized. We just can't take Hallie to any out of town parks (reference our trip to the Grand Canyon last year and her major accident in the parking lot as we left the park we played at in Flagstaff). You may notice that Hallie and Ben are absent from the park photos. I never got a chance to take any of them before Hallie did her neat little trick. Anyhoo...I think the kids enjoyed the day, and I did, too. I love my kids and wouldn't trade being a mom for anything. Happy Mother's Day!
