Happy Mother’s Day

May 11, 2014

It’s been a recurring tradition that we spend Friday before Mother’s Day at our favorite gardens. I was so delighted that even with Nate starting a new job he was able to get the day off to join us.

We always start at the Birds of Prey show at the Discovery Center. It’s Nate favorite and a must see every visit. Gotta love the birds!

After the birds, we always visit the bridge to feed the geese, turtles and fish.

Ellie was a bit confused. Do I eat it? Do I throw it? Why would I do that?

The same bridge is perfect for some fun. Clare was imitating something in the water. We aren’t sure what, but it was with great joy, she said, “Look at me!”

The kids found the rocks and water at the Callaway chapel quite fun. We definitely promised the kids they could spend time on the rocks. They were quite thankful to have worn their crocs.

This year though, Clare convinced daddy she could get in the water also…under the stipulation that she SIT. Oh she was so happy!

Sweet Elizabeth was content just exploring and toddling around. She loves to walk around outside and climb on everything!

She found some more benches to climb into.

Lunch was outside the Sibley Horticultural Center. I love the little sculptures found throughout the grounds. How fun.

One of the highlights is always playing on the grounds.

The babies were a bit tired. Loving their blankets and Elizabeth’s pacifier.

Katie and Nate played frisbee.

Michael played with everyone!

Elizabeth and Nate toured the gardens and took a little rest. (She loves to climb onto benches and chairs!)

There were fish to feed here also! Thank God we always bring quarters with us.

Katie thought she’d get fancy throwing feed into the pond and realized she might not have held onto the frisbee tight enough.

I was so delighted to have had a few stolen moments without the noise of the kids and the babies. I got a few stolen moments with my camera to photograph a lizard on it’s journey to camouflage itself in the bush.

So happy Mother’s Day to all mothers, and for those that might not have known we are expecting, the big gender reveal is Tuesday morning. The baby is due in late September. I love this picture of my oldest to youngest.

    what wonderful pictures, stories, for your Mom’s day blessings; your prior days outing at the gardens…you are so creative, so much talent in one super Mom Sara Lin! Wow…I am amazed at how much time you can carve to make such special memories for the children while being so calm throughout the chaos…you will have such a full life to look back on & share with your own children’s children someday 🙂 can’t wait to hear whom you are carrying…whether a boy or a girl it’s truly a blessed miracle for certain! Love you all; thanks for sharing!
