It was really nice to be able to enjoy the zoo on a weekday evening, especially since we pretty much had the whole area to ourselves. Caribbean Cove definitely brought back memories of St. Maarten. I'm missing that little island in the middle of the ocean more than I thought I ever would!

Those kids are so special to me and I'm so glad that I got to help them celebrate their birthdays! We definitely love being Uncle Jay and Aunt Ash!! After the party, we headed down South to Sikeston to watch our friends race their fourwheelers. After the sun went down, it got frigid! Thank goodness I took a blanket to sit on or else we would have been frozen icicles by the end of the night.
The boys did good in their races--I didn't get any pictures because it was too dark! Next race, I'll try to get some pictures of the boys racing around the track. The weekend was full of fun....we're looking forward to the next one!

For Mother's Day, we decided we were going to get together and drive to my grandma's house. We got ready and loaded up the car for a long drive. I hadn't seen my grandma since I've been back, so it was a much needed trip. It was a very relaxing day-catching up on everyone and playing some games outside.
Mother's Day weekend was really good! I think I was having withdrawals from everyone while I was away because it sure felt good to get together again! Happy Mother's Day Mom! I LOVE YOU!

It didn't take long for them to find their freedom! They were running up and down all the hills in the park....they couldn't run fast enough! It was so nice for us to just walk around the park following the dogs...talking about our day...feeling the warm sun....and enjoying the day as a family! It was a PERFECT day to play in the park!
