Happy Mother's Day!

Hope all of the mom's out there had a fabulous day celebrating the precious gift of Motherhood especially our own moms! I had a special Mother's Day with my little Evie. She started the day off perfectly by sleeping extra  late! Carl took her to get me a toffee nut latte and some breakfast. I loved having a few minutes to myself in our house and loved it even more when my sweet girl came bounding in the house so proud to give me a card.

We hung out at home this morning since we are still recovering from our long trip. Evie entertained herself with all of her toys which seem suddenly new to her after a week away from them. We played outside for a bit until Evie took an unfortunate tumble. Not sure who was more upset me or Evie. She recovered much more quickly by taking a super long nap without eating lunch. Traveling must wear her out because she slept from 12:30 to nearly 4. Carl and I enjoyed relaxing on the couch although there was certainly plenty to do around the house after being gone. We decided it'd be more fun to spend time together than to get the house back in order.

Evie woke up and we headed to Green Hills mall which is our favorite mall in the area. Carl drove down the road leading to our church to get us to the mall. Evie talked about all the way and wanted to "see" the church and say "hi" before heading to the mall. Green Hills is really nice but we always have a difficult time getting Evie around in there. Not sure what we are doing wrong! We made a stop at Trader Joe's for a few supplies which ended up being a cart full of supplies. Carl and I love that place and wish they'd open a location closer to us. I am keeping my fingers crossed that a TJ's goes in when Whole Foods moves to it's new location.

Carl grilled some chicken for dinner and we had a lovely picnic outside. Evie was so excited to find an Easter egg with a chocolate egg inside. Egg had been hidden so well under a bush that the chocolate had not melted so Evie took care of eating that egg right away. It has been a gorgeous day! Evie and Carl certainly made my Mother's Day very special. Happy Mother's Day!
