Happy Mother's Day!

Wha a busy, but wonderful, Mother's Day this has been!  Scott took care of the dogs and Ava until I had to get up (7am), so I caught a little extra sleep.  Although, I was up late watching SNL last night, so I needed those extra zzzzzz's.

I walked in the Race for the Cure today - it was a perfect day to be outside!  The sun was shining, and there was a slight chill, but nothing uncomfortable.  Thousands turned out to participate - what a great way to start the day!  My friend Emilie and I walked together - I'm thinking that Ava should join me next year...there were lots of kids walking, and I think she'd have a blast.

That's the sea of people in front of us - this is right past the Starting Line.

When I came home, Scott fixed us a very late brunch, and then little Ava AND Mommy took a nap.  Darn SNL keeping me up late.  We tried to get a pic of me and Ava, but her attention was clearly focused on something else.

We then headed over to Scott's mom's house for a Mother's Day dinner with the family.  Lots of wonderful food, and company as usual!  Ava always has so much fun at Grandma Deb and Grandpa Whitey's house.

I made a Jell-O dish, and the lid slipped down.  Grandma Deb was showing Ava how to lick the Cool Whip off of the top.

And then we went outside for some and bubbles!

After we ate, Ava gave us a little dance routine - so cute!

And now this Mommy is going to take it easy for the rest of the night.  It's been a long, but fabulous day! 

Mom and Deb, thank you for being such good mothers to Scott and me - we wouldn't be the people we are today without your influence over the last 34 years.  We love you!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms and moms-to-be out there!

Love the whipped cream licking photos and the dancing on the table!! Someday, when she's MUCH older, she'll fit right in with us in Mexico. HA! Yeah- and then we'll fall and break a hip...

Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
