Mother's Day 2012

Mother's Day weekend was just the way I like it...low key and relaxing.  Saturday we went with my parents and Brad's mom to Stone Mountain to have a picnic and watch the Laser Show.  The weather was perfect (until Laser Show time).  We had sub sandwiches, fried chicken, pasta salad, potato salad, and fruit salad at the children's playground.  It is an awesome playground that is totally shaded so even on a hot day it is not so bad.  The boys LOVED it and Parker found a steep slide that he would not stay off of...he went down the slide on his belly, upside down, any way he could! 

 After our picnic and letting the boys play, we headed to the huge lawn for the laser show.  We hadn't been since Braden was Emersyn's age, so I was excited about going back, especially to see how Braden and Parker liked the lights and the fireworks.  We set up on the lawn and let the boys kick their soccer balls they brought.  Braden met a new friend shocker there and we watched them kick the ball back and forth.  Parker and Braden got so excited when the train came rolling down the track and Brad and my dad kept monitoring the weather.  About 45 minutes and a small rain shower before the show was to begin we decided that it would not be fun to get caught with three kids and all their gear in the bigger thunderstorm that was headed our way, so we packed up and headed home.  It was a good idea since it was already past the kids bedtime and they all passed out when we got in the car and the rain came in as we were pulling in the driveway!

Sunday morning Brad and Braden woke me up to give me my favorite flowers, a card made by Braden and a new pair of TOMS.  We met my parents at church and Emersyn was actually quiet through most of the service!  We headed home and got the kiddos down for naps and then I went ALL BY MYSELF to get a mani/pedi.  And the best part of my day was eating Tokyo in our own kitchen with my precious babies and my wonderful husband.  Low key and spent with the people I love the most!
