Blake took the children to Lowe's for their workshop on Saturday. We've done several of these over the years, starting when Carter was only a year old. Each kiddo prepared his own flower box and I'm happy to report there were no injuries!
Blake's endless creativity conjured up these beauties for me, too. He had the kids help him create a collage. This one was to be the back drop for what they chose, but after he put it together, he liked it so much, another one was started.
And, it looks like this. All of my favorite things. A few inside jokes. A ton of effort and love.
On Sunday, we ventured out for our annual Mother's Day picnic. Ironwoods Park in Leawood, Kansas was our destination.
And, I'll tell you one thing, peeps. Kansas does parks right. In all the places we've lived, I've never seen a Parks and Recreation system quite so impressive. This park has an obstacle course built in for community events. Awesome.
Carter so desperately wanted to indulge. It's reserved for special times, however.
There's a beautiful lodge and nature center.
More from the obstacle course....
We found a spot near the water and started our picnic. Why the jackets? It was 60 degrees! You know what they say about Kansas weather! Well, Coco does.
Always the need for a hug after a potty break.
Me and my babies.
The little ones sported their rain boots. For some reason, Carter wasn't interested in getting a pair?
The baseball game was started.
Back up, Jack. Keep going.
Perfect. Blake and I were tempted to make a run for it. Kidding. Kinda.
Lainey's skinny little booty has the hardest time keeping pants up. So, we're constantly getting a show.
Jack taking it all in. The beautiful park, not Lainey's booty. "I don't yike booty booty booties!"
Flowers for mom.
Sugar for Meow Meow.
Brothers are so much fun.
Exploring. And, no one fell in.
Carter went out to the "island".
More baseball. Ready stances.
And, more booty. We're working on it. I promise.
Time to go home. What a great day.
And, I left with wild flowers in my book.
What did you do to honor your mom or yourself?
