Sunday Wrap Up

1. Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there! I am very blessed to have such a wonderful mother. This morning our SS teacher had us name out words the describe our mothers and mine was "selfless". She has other qualities but she always put our needs before her own. And she was selfless with her time. She was always there for everything I did growing up - even though I'm sure it wasn't always how she would love to be spending her time - watching me in a spelling bee or playing 7th grade basketball on a Saturday morning - but she was there. She sacrificed a lot for me and my brother and I'm thankful for it.
2. Last night we got to go out to eat with Steve and Laurie and all of their parents. We were celebrating Steve's birthday to tomorrow. We had a good time and we REALLY enjoyed being entertained by Emily. She was just hilarious last night. She has such a fun personality. (and it didn't hurt that she called me "mama" a couple of times. She knows I love her as much as if she was my own. ha!)
3. Today Scott and I took Dawson for a walk at the Bella Vista trail. We had such a good time. It's 1.8 miles and of course by about 0.4 miles Dawson was dragging. (To his defense - it was 85 degrees.) But we took him down to a creek to get a drink and then he got his first try at swimming. We weren't sure if he would or not but I put him in and he instantly started dog paddling. He had the best time and once he was wet - he got a little pep in his step to finish the walk. We are going to go a lot more this summer so he can walk and swim.
4. I'm really sad because I failed to take pictures of #2 or #3.

Last time we took Ellie to walk and let her drink from the lake, she got "sick." It was lovely. She really is a high-maintenance girly girl. Hopefully Dawson handles it like a manly man.
