Mother's Day 2014

Celebrating Mother's Day has yet again but more than just a simple day all about mom. Last year, Connor was dedicated on Mother's Day and this year, we traveled to IL to witness my baby brother graduate college. With all these important events falling on Mother's Day, I kept help but wonder what next year will hold for our family.  And now.. the photo dump from our weekend.


Here's the graduate. CA graduated with double bachelors in Physics and Chemistry with a Minor in Math. Yeah, exciting right? He is one smart cookie though and I'm so proud of him. There is nothing this guy can't do.


Why you gotta be serious all the time? That's our motto and this is picture proof that we, when together, Chester and I are complete fools.


I can't believe how grown up both my baby brothers are. I remember when they were just little fellas and I would boss them around. I don't get to boss them anymore and they are far from little.


The whole clan, minus James who was our photographer. I was so happy everyone was looking at the camera and smiling... well except Momma. Who knows what she is doing?


My little family of 3. How I love these fellas! Nothing in the world makes me happier than being a wife and Mommy.

I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend Mother's Day. I was able to see my Mom and family, celebrate my brother and Connor smiled for photos. Over all, it was a beautiful day. 

I hope each of you spent it with those dearest to you, feeling appreciated and loved.

    1. The trip home nearly ruined the fun but overall, it was a great weekend. I had forgotten about the Midwest humidity! Ouch!
