Mother’s Day 2014

16 May

I told Travis that all I wanted for Mother’s Day this year was to read at a coffee shop by myself and get a manicure/pedicure. So on Saturday morning, I went to a coffee shop and read for about an hour. So peaceful and rejuvenating.

Anyway, on Sunday, the guys cooked me and Beth a delicious breakfast.

After church, we bought a dog poop scooper at Ace Hardware, which I put to use when we got back to the house while Travis fixed the tire on our jogging stroller and Emma took a nap. Not exactly what I had envisioned doing on Mother’s Day but it was enjoyable to be outside at least. I utilized the rest of Emma’s nap to read a book and relax though.

Once Emma woke up, we headed into Nevis and took a walk on the Heartland Trail. Emma also played on the playground near the giant Tiger Muskie statute.


Awesome, right?

We bought Travis’s mom a book called For Love of Lakes, and will celebrate with my mom the next time we see her (which should be in just a few weeks!). Happy belated Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there!
