Mother's (of 2) Day

Well, I'm only about a month and a half late on this one.  My goal was to recap Mother's Day before Father's Day happened.  Fail.  I guess that's a lesson in motherhood.  Sometimes other things get moved to the back burner in order to spend precious moments with the precious ones.
 
Anyway, this year we had a super chill mother's day.  We went to church and then met my family at Chutes and Ladders so Griff could play (bonus to being the only grandchild with an opinion).
All of the grandparents took turns chasing Griff around.
While we all ate a BYOP (Bring Your Own Picnic).

Griff was in his glory.
He's really into climbing.  Especially on me.  I've been trying so hard to keep repeating, "where do we climb?"  Griff is quick to answer, "at the park," but his actions haven't caught up to his words.
He also loves slides.  The faster and taller the better.  He hasn't yet tried what Nate was doing at his age, going down the slides standing up, screaming, "I'm Tuperman!"
The Grandmas....

Mama and Griff....wow, we need to work on that smile.

Our family of four...I guess this is the best of the bunch and probably the best we can expect a family picture to look for the next few years.
We spent the "after-nap" time with the Woodbury's.  Grandma, the moms and all the kiddos....
Grandma and Griff...
And then we just spent some quality time on our porch to end the day.  For days (even months) after mother's day, Griffin still scribbles on a piece of paper, (tries to) fold it up and hands it to me singing, "Happy Mother's Day to you!"  I guess everyday truly is mother's day at our house:)...thanks for teaching them early, Nate.
