Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy! We love you! For Mother’s Day we went over to mom and dad Bryan’s house. My grandmother (my mom’s mom) was visiting from Minnesota and it was good to spend some time with her.

We have been cleaning out the pole barn in preparation for camp meeting at Solid Rock Baptist Church. One of the things in there was this child-sized car bed. The pastor’s wife, Mrs. Stead, asked us if we wanted it and since Donny was still in a crib it was a perfect fit. Donny couldn’t have been more excited to get a new bed. We don’t really give our kids a lot of things so the things they do get are extra special to them. It was good to see how happy he was to receive his little new bed. Thank you Pastor and Mrs. Stead!

Carlie wanted so much to learn to ride this tricycle. She kept calling her mommy to come and push her around but wise ol’ mommy knew that once she got just frustrated enough with it she’d put out the necessary effort to learn. Just after this picture she learned to ride for the very first time and by the time I saw her on it she had that thing moving like a pro.
