Happy Mother's Day

My Mother's Day started with a big Burgundy envelope from Spa Sydell given by my sweet husband. Yippee - a full half day of massage and a facial. I'm really looking forward to making an appointment.

We spent the weekend with the Davis clan. We officially welcomed summer with a day on the lake Saturday. There were pools set up on the dock - one for the big girls, and a little one for Charlotte. Then there were jet ski, paddle boat, and pontoon boat rides. Charlotte had her first jet ski ride for a few minutes! Then, she went on a long pontoon boat ride.

We had a nice Mother's Day that included church and a big steak lunch. Here's a picture of the girls taken today.

I wasn't with my mother today, but thought of her often. I'm so lucky to have a mother-in-law that I feel so close to and truly treats me as one of her own. There are times that I get down on myself about the mother I am, but then I think of the wonderful examples I have and know that I can't be bad if I am trying to model after them.
