Relaxing, Fishing, and Tulips

I know, this is late, but I had to post pics of my kids fishing with Jason on Mother's Day. There was a kid fishing tournament in our area that Jason was going to take them to. We thought it was on Mother's Day, but we found out the day before that it was actually on Saturday! Whoops! So Jason still took them, just to a different place. They were so excited to go, and I was too! I was going to be ALONE for a little bit. Wow! We started the day with Jason cooking a yummy breakfast and then let me lay in bed for the morning, just dozing off and on while he kept the kids busy. Loved it.
Off they went after lunch to go fishing. Josh kept saying that he was going to "catch a BIG fish!". I made sure that Jason took the camera and get some pictures. He knows how I want to capture everything with them, even if I am not there. Bless him.
As you can see from these pictures, the fish were not big, but that didn't matter to them! They had a ball. I was alone for a whole 2 hours. It felt weird at first. As much as I looked forward to being alone, I felt guilty and terrible to not have my kids with me on Mother's Day. That's me, always second-guessing myself and my actions. But they had a great time with just Daddy and they really needed it after he was out of town for work for 7 days.
I love this angle of Jason taking the picture with his hand stretched out to show the fish. I wonder if the kids didn't want to hold it?

My beautiful babies. *sniff sniff* What's left of them being a baby.

Joshua took this picture. Not bad!

Proud of their catch. Joshua's smile looks a little strained and his hair was such a mess on that muggy day.

My two handsome boys. Gosh, my husband is sexy. Ah-hem. Sorry about that.
I got great homemade gifts and cards from the kids that they made at school. Those are the best, better than jewelry! Jason grilled steak (my favorite!) for dinner and brought me some tulips. I love, love, love tulips and I love, love, love that he remembers that. It was a great, relaxing day for all of us. I teared up when I was kissing them at night before bedtime and telling them how lucky I am to be their mom. It was a great day and I am a blessed momma!

I took this video of Joshua singing his ABC's. I just had to get this on video to hear him. Love his precious voice. But I HATE hearing my voice!
I hope everyone had a blessed Mother's Day!
