It’s funny . . . when Ray asked me a few weeks ago how I’d like to spend Mother’s Day, I said that I’d love to just be able to do what I want to do all day . . . no cleaning, no diaper changing, no cooking . . . but maybe some sewing. My Mother’s Day plans changed, though, when we traveled to Florida for my dad’s funeral the day before. It ended up being a great blessing to be able to spend it with my Grandma and my Mom instead of spending it doing nothing.
We woke up Sunday morning and drove from my Mom’s house near Gainesville to north Jacksonville to go to church with my Grandma (my Dad’s mom). After church we went out to eat, and then we went back to Grandma’s house to hang out for awhile.
It’s such a blessing to see my kids enjoy time with their Great Grandma!
We left Grandma’s house in the early afternoon and headed back to my Mom’s. We stopped on the way and picked up some dinner for everyone. My sister, Bobbie, came over with her girls, and we all enjoyed dinner together.

After dinner, Papa and Nana took the kids for a ride.
Then Papa watered the crops . . . and the kids . . . at the same time.
When the sun started to go down, we all headed inside to relax together and watch a movie before we packed things up to head home the next day. It was a great day spent surrounded by love!
