Mother's Day 2015

May 11, 2015

Yesterday was Mother's Day and Colorado decided to dump some snow on us to celebrate. I woke up to a text message at 6:15 am from my mother that said, "This is ridiculous." She sent me a photo of all the snow in her yard and the trees collapsing from the weight of the snow. If anyone knows my mom, they know not to mess with her trees. I had a not so happy mother on mother's day. 

So, Michael and I got up and headed down to her place to help her beat the snow off the trees, uncover the flowers, and hope for sunshine. 
My brother drove down from Fort Collins to come visit my mom as well. Once we arrived, we all munched on some delicious waffles Michael made and had a lovely brunch together.
But no day is complete without some witty humor from Tanner... so he decided to entertain us with the last two waffle pieces and he turned himself into a range of animals you'll see below. What's your fave? It's just really hard to love anything more than the shark face...
Then we headed out to the barn to play the with baby goats. Three more babies were born the day after my birthday and my mom needed help naming them. We decided on Rocco for the bigger boy, Roxy for the girl, and Rudy for the small runt male of the litter (snuggled up with Tanner and I below). 
 By that point, the sun had started to shine and it was warm enough to want to play outside. Michael made a snowman, complete with dandelion eyes, and I must say - it's pretty darn impressive for his first snowman. (I know, I know. I don't know how the man has lived so long without making a snowman, but there's a first for everything.)
We brought Bear along for the Mother's Day adventures and he was so tuckered out by the end of the day. The poor guy just can't catch the rabbits or eat all the snow on the ground. No wonder he was falling asleep sitting up! 
 And although all of us would have preferred a nice day of weather, we all had a great time coming together to play with my momma and remind her how much we love her.

I absolutely adore you, momma bear. You have taught me so many lessons throughout my life, many of which I am certain you don't even realize you taught me. Your selflessness, ambition, and unconditional love remind me daily to strive to be a better person. You are my role model, my rock, and my best friend. I'm so very thankful to have such a close relationship with you & it has been so special for me to be back from the Peace Corps and see much more of you in my daily life. Thank you for loving me, standing by my side, and encouraging me in every way to follow my heart and dreams.

I love you more than you know. Happy Mother's Day!
Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there - you are so very loved.
