Happy Mother's Day!

Mother's Day was LOVELY! Shawn took the kids to the store for flowers where they couldn't agree on one bouquet...so I got 4! One from each child! I have beautiful flowers everywhere!
Somewhere along the line I did something really great...because I'm lucky enough to have the 4 most incredible kids. I cannot imagine my life without any one of them. I love them all so much!

Happy Mother's Day to every mother I know...what a great gift it is!

Tyler chose green and yellow daisies, he told me, "I was walking around the cart looking at all the flowers and these just spoke to me." Holden then piped up, "It's 'cause they're Green Bay colors." It clicked for Ty and he just laughed and laughed.

Holden chose yellow tulips...he said he couldn't find Boston Red Sox colors for me ;)

Camden chose purple roses, because I like the color purple and he knows that.

Addy chose the live plant, she believes they are roses, but I think they are really gladiolas or something...there was a tag, but I didn't pay much attention.

Shawn took me to the bike store and got me a Cannondale CAAD F7 mountain bike. I wasn't so sure at first, thinking it was a lot of money to spend on a bike I was riding the kids to school on, but Shawn said it was worth going with the upgrade. And I LOVE IT! We've ridden the path to Vivian Park from the mouth of Provo Canyon a few times and been out to Willow Park and ridden the trail there too. It KILLS me every time, but I really LOVE it! I'm totally getting into it. Who knew? I don't have a picture of my bike, but I'll get one...it's cute too. :)

Camden and Addy also gave me a massage...by walking on my back and legs. I made Shawn try it first...




Shawn was working that day, but my mom had called all the men and asked them to make salads for dinner that night at her house. Shawn made a "mean, lean, green salad", emphasis on the "lean". It consisted of lettuce, croutons, and honey roasted slivered almonds. When I told him that I was going to add cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. He told me, "Your mom wants MY salad. If she had wanted YOUR salad, she would have asked YOU to bring it." I stand corrected!

For Mother's Day my mom had found all of us matching sandals in different colors and little pedicure kits! They were way cute and we decided to mark the occasion with pictures...of our feet!

Roxanne's feet are on the left in yellow, Shelley's are next in white, Amylee's are in the middle in blue, mine are 2nd to end on the right in red, and Becca's are on the far right in black.

We all put our best foot forward! AHAHAHAHA! Or maybe we were doing the hokey pokey...
