Mother's Day 2011

I had SUCH a great Mother's Day weekend! First, Ben would not let me do anything. All weekend. I would try to clean or do a project and he would just lead me away from it, making me just relax...which is something I have a really hard time doing. I took his advice though and overly enjoyed myself. Saturday Kacy and I decided we would try our first 5 mile run. It was intense to put it lightly. This part is funny though - We got to where Kacy had mapped the trail out for us and there was already a race going on. When we got to one of the check points they thought we were racers and didn't know why we wouldn't go around the cone! It was funny - they did share some water with us though so that was nice. It was both of our first ever race crashing experience -ha!
Sunday Morning I was showered with way too many gifts by my boys. I got these two beautiful new plants, one from each of my boys.
Then I got a pair of flip flops - my favorites!
And then a gift card to a local spa - Ben is in trouble for doing so much!
I really wanted a picture with my boys, so before church we attempted a few. Some turned out good but as you can see in this one- they weren't having it. I just laugh when I see this because it is so true to life. Those boys do not want to stand still!
We had lunch at our house after church for my Mom and then dinner at Mama Fu's that night.
It was such a great day, I really didn't want it to end. I told Ben it was like having two birthdays in one year :)
