Happy Mother's Day! - Happy to be a Mommy :)

Happy Mother's Day, Moms! I know I say this a lot, but it's true. I love my boys and I'm especially loving being a Mommy more and more everyday! The more I get to know my boy and his little personality, the more I love him... and the man who gave him to me :) Also, I'm so thankful to God for blessing me with the job! A lot of work.... but a lot of blessings too!

Mother's Day weekend was pretty crazy in our neighborhood. Two of our neighbors were able to get onto the show, Turf Wars (same idea as Yard Crashers only it's a competition between neighbors)... so we had camera crews and lots of trucks parked on our street! They filmed our neighbors, Tim and Melissa, for an interview on the hill beyond our backyard.

On Saturday, I really wanted to try out "Berry Fest" in Roseville. I've been to Stockton's Asparagus Festival... and I like berries even more! So my parents and Auntie Lori & Tim joined us for a little outing...

Ethan enjoyed stuffing his face with Grandma and Grandpa's food...

Check out the 2 mosquito bites on the little guy's forehead :(

A petting zoo!

Ethan saying "Quack! Quack!" for the chickens...
All birds are ducks and all other animals (besides dogs) are elephants.
Welcome to Ethan's world :)

Grandpa took Ethan to the petting zoo and showed him how to pet the animals gently

As a bonus, Grandma bought Ethan a rolling bucket.
He thought it was the best purchase ever!

For dinner we went to Susumu Japanese Steakhouse
Ethan LOVED the cooking show... he kept imitating the chef by pretending to chop food on the table...


On Sunday, we headed over to Grandma Young's for Mother's Day. We went out to Mongolian BBQ for lunch and then Mom and I went shopping. LOVELY! :)
We had a wonderful dinner (prepared by Grandpa) and Mark, Ethan, and I got to splash around in the hot tub... Life couldn't have been better for the little guy! 

The week after, I took Ethan to get his 3rd haircut.
But on Mother's Day, we had some fun with his locks in the Spa :)

I hope you all were able to celebrate this special day with your loved ones and enjoy the wonderful women in your life! We are so blessed to have two loving, precious, irreplaceable Moms/Grandmas and I will cherish each and every day that I get to spend with them both!
We love you Mom Wager and Mom Young!
