First I wanted to start out with a few pictures from Thursday, which was Brayden and Kenadi's birthday. We went to Opp for the day and ate lunch at Howard's then we hung out at Gregg's grandmother's house for a little while before going to the cemetery and then stopped in Enterprise and had Moe's with Anthony, Andrea and Kylee. Here's the pics:

Now, back to Mother's Day!! :) I had a great weekend! My weekend actually started on Friday. Loaded up my 3 babies and headed to Opp to meet Gregg's sister and her little boy and my niece Brennon and we took a trip down to the beach. This was Atlas' first trip and it was also my nephews first time! I was hoping that Atlas would love it as much as Kaidi and Asher did and I was not disappointed at all! He enjoyed it and was so pleasant!
|Look at that sweet little chunk of love! :)|
We stayed on the beach for about an hour and a half and then it took us about 30 minutes to clean up all 5 kids, ourselves and load up my van. We stopped at a seafood market and bought shrimp for a shrimp boil we were having Saturday and then headed on back to Opp. I had plans with Kaidi Friday night so we got back and got all ready for that. I took her to a ballet in Andalusia. It was great and she was so attentive and asked a lot of questions throughout the ballet. I only got one picture of she and I on our Mommy/Daughter night
We had a great time and afterwards we ran by walmart and then back to my moms.
Saturday morning we lazed around a little and then the kids, my mom and myself rode over to Andalusia and back and I headed over to Gregg's grandmothers house to get started on things for the shrimp boil. Wish I would have taken a picture of the strawberry lemonade cake I made! It was delicious!! I will definitely be making that one again and again! Perfect for the summer time! Our shrimp boil turned out to be a little on the chaotic side. Gregg's grandmother started feeling ill so his aunt took her to the ER where they ended up admitting her with pneumonia and I think it just threw our entire afternoon off. The food ended up being great, but it's a wonder it ever got cooked! :)
Sunday morning the kids and I went to my parents church and then had lunch there afterwards. Gregg gave me my mother's day present and it was a new camera. I am so excited to have a new camera! Just gotta figure out how to work it! :) I got my old camera for mother's day 5 years ago and it has surely been a good one! I plan to keep it for beach trips and messy adventures! :) I took a few pictures with my new camera after church and was very pleased.
That evening we went over to my grandparents house where my granddad was having a fish fry. Most of my extended family was there so it was nice seeing everyone. The fish was wonderful! Gregg had to leave there a little early to get back and submit a report for work. I left shortly after I ate, since it is an hour drive, and it was getting late. When we got home, I threw the kids in the bath and Asher has now learned to climb out, and he got out and found his fire hat, boots and fire truck and was parading all over the house like this
Hope you all had as great of a Mother's Day as I did. I loved spending the day with my kids and my family. Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face than the memories with my children. I am so blessed to be a mother to Brayden, Kenadi, Kaidi, Asher and Atlas. So very blessed! :)
