Mother's Day

We spent Mother's Day at my parents' house this year. They are out of the country visiting my brother, and we decided to throw a party in their house while they were gone (with their permission, of course!). My parents live only minutes from my house, but worlds away in atmosphere. They own 9 acres of land that is partially wooded; we live in a subdivision with people all around!

We invited our small group from church to join us for a getaway. We fished

played games, ate pizza and stayed up way too late Saturday night. We had a light breakfast Sunday morning and everyone headed off to their various Mother's Day activities.

With my own mom out of town we decided to just relax to celebrate. We took a walk around the property, took photos of the gardens,

and headed out into the woods to the little creek our kids love playing in.

All in all it was a lovely day!
