We enjoyed a new "first" for our family! We had a weekend family trip away with friends! We met the Summitts, Holberts, and other Holberts in Memphis for a weekend at the zoo. Just staying in the hotel was an adventure for my boys! Overall, they did so great on the trip. I am starting to see those signs of easier traveling in the future. They pulled their own little suitcases. They slept in the same room together (the living room part of our suite). Dylan slept on the couch bed and Caleb slept in his pack -n- play.
It all started with some wrestling on the bed, of course.

We spent Mother's Day weekend in Memphis enjoying our family time with great friends! I will post all on that next. First, I wanted to share two moms that we love with all of our hearts! They are great mothers and even better at being Mawmaw and Nana! And that includes lots of hugs, kisses, and spoiling! Honestly, I don't know what I would do without them. I often probably take it for granted that we all live in the same town!
It's a miracle that they are here and part of our lives. Being "mommy" is the most rewarding and most exhausting thing that I have ever done. I wouldn't trade any of it. I try my best to cherish it all and definitely soak up the good times because they are closely followed by things like: boys climbing on the cabinets, stepping in poo in the bathroom when one didn't make it in time, cleaning one up from "washing" his feet in the toilet, cereal dumped out on the kitchen floor, doctoring mosquito bites, wiping booties, and saving the world! Ha! It's hard work, but it's MY hard work. They will be in school every day soon enough and I will miss them! I am taking my time to watch them grow and learn and enjoy the little things before full time school and then in a blink, before high school graduation!
Dylan calls me "Momma" most of the time and Caleb says "Mommy". Life would not be the same without them. Thank you God for their healthy life and for giving them to us to raise in YOUR glory. Words can't touch how truly thankful I am to be a Mom.
