Yesterday my mom and Step Brad came down to watch Gavin’s soccer games and then stuck around to chill out with us for the rest of the weekend. We had a great time watching soccer first, eating a lunch that was way too big, hitting the greenhouse, and then chilling back at the house.
The whole time they were here we had a wonderful time just kicking back and shooting the bull. We fired up a couple of games of Exploding Kittens, watched some Chopped, and went through a box of old Boy Scouts stuff from way back in the day.
Throughout the entire time it was just awesome to spend time talking with my mom. Nothing in particular or anything, just spending time together. It’s been a while since we’ve done that and catching up was exactly what I needed this Mother’s Day weekend. Looking ahead to the next few months I’m excited that there are a few more times we’ll have the opportunity to do that. There’s just something about spending time with her that puts a huge smile on my face. I’m thankful for our time together!
It was also a lot of fun spending time with Becky and the boys this weekend. In between activities and running there were quiet moments with each that I am very thankful for. This morning started off with the boys making breakfast for everyone and I was able to help them a bit in the kitchen. Later, the boys and I had a ton of fun while doing the Cub Scouts swim test. Before and after Becky and I ran a couple of errands solo and enjoyed having a little time to just the two of us. At some point tonight we might even play a game of cribbage on the new cribbage board that boys made for Becky for Mother’s Day. The day was complete because of the time I had with each of them.
This has been a Mother’s Day weekend that I will remember for quite some time. Thank you to my mom, Brad, Becky, and the boys for making it an awesomely memorable weekend!
