Mama's Day Celebration

It's official--Mother's Day is my favorite holiday. I was pretty sure this was the case last year but it was confirmed on Sunday. Homemade pancakes, walks outside, a painted pot with a pretty flower from Parker and Kris, a decorated flower pot and a picture Parker made at daycare, a new DSLR lens, a trip to the zoo, a recreation of one of my all time favorite meals--Mitchell's Shang Hai Sampler, and catching up on the DVR while downing bomb pops made this day awe.some.

We're at the zoo with all these amazing animals and what catches Parker's eye? Birdies.

Maybe if they run fast enough they can catch that bird.

Maybe next time.

Striking a diva pose.

Why hello, things that look like llamas.

You deserve a kiss blown at you.

I was hoping for a sweet mother-daughter picture in front of the polar bear exhibit.

What I got was picture proof of Parker's current obsession with my "boops."

Love my painted pot :)

And my card :)

And my decorated pot :)

And my new lens :)

Couldn't have asked for a better day.


  1. The "boops" pictures are awesome! You'll have a great time sharing these with Parker some day! I'm glad you had a great Mother's Day!

  2. HAHA! I was laughing out loud at the boops one. Parker is hilarious!
