Mother's Day

We celebrated Mother's Day on Saturday since Sunday is always so busy with church and this week we went up to Denver for my step sisters college graduation party. Quick shout out...Congrats Ash, my fellow CSU grad! I love you girl and great work!

Gabe was so sweet to plan out Saturday for me. He had Avery ask me out on a date to lunch. We went to Chick-fil-A together, she paid! After we had a great time eating lunch and playing, I took her to the "treasure store" (Goodwill) so she could pick out her very own treasure. She ended up getting two, a cute necklace and a new book for under $3! She was so excited about her treasure finds! I unfortunately didn't find any treasures, but I hope Avery will let me borrow her necklace one of these days.I really enjoyed this one on one time with Avery, we don't get much of it anymore! Her love language is definitely "quality time", so I love knowing her love cup was filled!
Before our date!

She loves chicken nuggets!

After my date with Avery, Gabe had Sophie give me money to go buy a new shirt! The plan was to take her with me, but shopping alone is always more enjoyable and realistic. Someday Sophie will love going shopping with me, I hope! Almost two hours alone is always a treat and very rare! Thank you sweet Gabe and Sophie for treating me to this time!

Later that evening we went out to eat together. We didn't mix it up very much, we went to our favorite, Chipotle. It was such a joy to be out as a family and I truly am overwhelmed by how blessed I am!  I'm so thankful to be a wife and Momma! Thank you all for such a special Mother's Day! I love you sooooo much!

Here are some photos from Mother's Day...

 Love my girlies!
