Mother's Day Weekend

We had a fabulous Mother's Day weekend!

Friday afternoon, we got the water table back out because it was SO hot outside!

Ella thought the water was a little cold, haha!

Trav came home from work early and had Ella give me these pretty flowers!

Saturday morning, I had to work at the Y. After work, I quickly ran home, grabbed Ella and then the 2 of us went back to the Y to see her best friends' dance recital!

Mackenzie and Ellie are 2 of Ella's most favorite people ever, so when they were in the same dance class, we just had to go to their recital! 

I think it also got Ella excited for her own dance recital in a few weeks!

While we were doing that, Travis and my father-in-law were working hard pressure washing our swing set! I can't believe how clean it looked when they were done!

Almost new, right?! We just need to stain it and get a canopy for up on top!

To thank my in-laws for helping us all day, Travis grilled some BBQ for dinner! Lucas ate every bite, and especially liked the baked beans!

Ella wan't into the food as much (surprise, surprise). 

But she was excited for s'mores!!

We kicked off Mother's Day with the sweetest cards and Trav telling me I can get a new car! Woohoo! I mean, I obviously need one since I can't fit 3 car seats in my current car, but still. We were going to start the whole car shopping experience yesterday, but Lucas ended up taking a crazy long nap, so we didn't go. But send me your recs for SUVs with 3 rows!!! No vans!

We had to continue our Mother's Day tradition of matching Lilly outfits! Lucas didn't have a match this year, but luckily, had a coordinating Polo shirt hanging in his closet! :) 

Ella and I went to get fro-yo since it was free for moms!

During nap time, I finally finished painting the other 3 walls gray in the baby's room! 

After Ella's nap, Lucas was still asleep so I took Ella to the pool while Trav stayed home to make dinner and watch Lucas!

I am so happy our neighborhood pool is open, especially on hot days like yesterday!!! I think we will be spending a lot of time up here this summer!

We ended the day with a delicious meal, made by Chef Travis! Even though we have tons of leftover barbecue, he knows that's not my favorite, and made some gnocchi and homemade tomato sauce (with grilled chicken) instead! It was delicious!

I hope all of the moms out there had a great Mother's Day weekend too!
