This past weekend the boys and I had the chance to honor Gina for Mother's Day. This was her 5th Mother's Day, and we wanted to make it a good one. This involved several different trips to several different stores so we find just the right mix of presents for her. We had a lot of fun doing this, but it was even more fun watching Mommy open her presents. We also had a lot of fun cooking for her over the weekend. We made strawberry waffles for breakfast on Sunday, and we put a roast in the crock pot for lunch, both of which are two of Mommy's favorites.

The best part of Mother's Day is that we get to show Gina how much we love her. She is a wonderful mother to Sam and Nate, and I am blessed to share this adventure with her. She balances a lot, but you would never know it when she walks in the door every afternoon. She's always eager to sit down with the boys and play whatever they are playing, or read a book, or go to the park, or whatever. We're grateful for the example she is for all of us, how God uses her in so many ways in the lives of others. As God continues to stretch us and grow us into the family He wants us to be, we are thankful for days like this when we can stop and thank God for Gina and all that she means to us.
