Updates, Updates...

Really, we actually have a lot of postings upcoming. We just returned from our first vacation in about 3 years. It was wonderful and I will start posting photos soon. Right now we are in the process of going through photos just to catalog where we went, who we saw, what we did, and how we felt. It was not some exotic trip or the big family outing to Disneyland. Rather, it was our Memorial Holiday trip where we wanted it to be about family and celebrating our family members who are still with us and those who have passed on. I see so many of our younger generation of folks these days forgetting their forefathers - those who are even still with us - and we feel strongly that we instill an appreciation for our elders in our children that many of today's youth lack.

With that being said, we also went to the elementary school carnival before departing on our trip so we have a whole posting on that as well. Lots to report on.

For now, a bit on this past Mother's Day. We actually did not celebrate me all that much. We had plans for our moms. Seeing my Auntie E and feeling earthly life as fleeting, I opted to skip my own celebration and just be with our moms. We spent one of the weekend days with Hubby's mom and one of them with my mom. There were lunches and barbeques as well as T's last t-ball game. Gosh - more to blog about there. Oh, and my tap dancing recital, too. As I said, lots to catch up on.

One thing I do always insist on, though, for me on Mother's Day is a photo with my kids. So here you have it. It's pretty casual since we were all tired of a weekend packed with games and gatherings but I do love my kiddos - all three of them. Even 3.0 has been getting in on the action since I've really started to feel her move around the past couple weeks. 

Stay tuned for plenty more updates. I may hit a record number of postings in one week.
