We decided to head to Northwest Iowa for Mother's Day weekend. Aaron took his last personal day and we picked-up Jenna from the Blank Park Zoo and made the long trek to Sioux City. I love seeing family, but man oh man do I hate the actual packing and traveling part.
Anyway, after a quick trip to Target we headed out to our friend Gabe's house. He (along with his wife, Jenny) live north of Sioux City on three acres of land. Gabe is like an annoying brother. A total smart ass, but when you haven't seen him for awhile you realize you kind of missed him. :) He took the kids for rides on his 4-wheeler. They loved it, especially Jenna!
In honor of Mother's Day...Aaron and his mama. :)
Sunday morning we headed to Cherokee to have lunch at my mom's. She put Bill in charge of the meal and it was delish. He made me an asparagus seafood bisque! Can you say yummy?!
The kids were excited to meet the three kittens my mom's cat just had a few months ago. Aren't they cute?
All of my baby dolls. I feel so lucky that I have been blessed with four great kids. I thank God everyday that he chose me to be their mom. They are each unique and special in their own way and that's why I love each of them. They keep me on my toes, but I wouldn't have it any other way. :)
