Sunday, May 10th: Mother's Day

I woke to my precious babies singing Happy Mother's Day & holding cards. Written cards are priceless! After getting dressed, we posed for pictures with the ones that made me a mother. Our family met Logan's family for a few hours at Homestead Hollow in Springville. The rest of the afternoon & night was spent at home as a family of 4.

My mom (aka: Coco)

Her hands held me gently from the day I took my first breath.
Her hands helped to guide me as I took my first step.
Her hands held me close when the tears would start to fall.
Her hands were quick to show me that she would take care of it all.

Her hands were there to brush my hair, or straighten a wayward bow.
Her hands were often there to comfort the hurts that didn't always show.
Her hands helped hold the stars in place, and encouraged me to reach.
Her hands would clap and cheer and praise when I captured them at length.

Her hands would also push me, though not down or in harm's way.
Her hands would punctuate the words, just do what I say.
Her hands sometimes had to discipline, to help bend this young tree.
Her hands would shape and mold me into all she knew I could be.

Her hands are now twisting with age and years of work,
Her hand now needs my gentle touch to rub away the hurt.
Her hands are more beautiful than anything can be.
Her hands are the reason I am me.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom.
Love, your punkin

Saturday, May 9th

Stryker had a baseball game which is always a fun time! We followed the game with a trip to Coco's. We enjoyed a couple of hours at the pool. Lake ended up napping in my arms swinging on Coco's back porch swing. So the girls stayed home while Fletch took Logan & Stryker to get BBQ for dinner. Thank you for all of the fun memories!
