Since we had been to DFW so often in the past month, we ended up staying in Austin for Mother's Day. I hated being away from my mom, Kyle's mom, and the newest mom in our family--Kori, but we had a fun family weekend and got to see them all shortly after.
Lane came home from school on Friday with some sweet gifts he made for me! I got...a flower pot with a rock ladybug he painted, and a footprint butterfly. So very sweet!
On Saturday we went to Top Golf. I had never been and Kyle knew Lane and I would love it. It was so much fun!
It is basically a fancy driving range that keeps track of your ball, and you earn points for hitting your ball into certain areas. A computer keeps track of your score, just like in bowling. It is 3 stories tall, and the higher you go, the easier it is. We were on the 2nd level.
Lane loved it! We had our own table, so in between swings he would sit and munch on snacks and play games on our phones. :) It isn't a place where he can run around since we were on the 2nd story and people were swinging clubs all around us, so we had to keep him contained!
Too busy for a picture with Mom
A little better. Haha!
So happy to be watching Daddy hit while enjoying his cheese and crackers!
On Sunday I was showered with thoughtful gifts from Kyle and Lane. An 'All About Mom' questionnaire, a coffee mug hand painted by Lane, beautiful flowers, and 2 new books that will be perfect for housing the funny and brilliant things Lane says!
**I may or may not have printed out the All About My Mom sheet, handed it to Kyle and said "Have Lane fill this out." :)
Here's a close-up of the form. The boy was pretty spot-on, except for the part about loving cooking. haha! And on the favorite food part-- if by 'chicken' he meant Chick-Fil-A, then he is correct on that one!!
We spent the day at home, playing games and lounging around. That night we went to dinner in Lakeway at Iguana Grill. It is a Mexican food place that overlooks Lake Travis. The water was low, but it was still a pretty view and a fun place to sit outside and eat!
Lane took this picture with my phone! Talented!
Of course, he passed out on the ride home!
And even though it was Mother's Day, he decided to wake up while we tried to change him into his jammies and throw a major fit!
BUT, even in times when he is a stinker--and those times are getting more and more frequent as he breezes through his 3's--I am so proud to be his Mommy! He makes almost every day feel like Mother's Day by saying "I love you" multiple times a day, telling me I'm his "favorite girl," and saying "You're the best Mommy ever!" I'm so thankful for him!
