Mother's Day 2011

we started our day off EARLY.
brigg and i were up at 6 am.
we needed to be at his baseball game for day 2 of his tournament at 7:30.
but we made it.
and it was gorgeous out.
perfect day for baseball.

they played 2 games back-to-back.
lost one, won one.
both great learning experiences.
and we were done before noon.
that makes for one happy momma.
the boys all wore pink wristbands in honor of their mothers.

also...just for the record...i cheer. LOUD.
as in YELL...loud.
so by the end of 2 games, i quite literally have no voice left.
which i believe makes brigg very happy.
he probably wishes he had another game, so he could play without his mother screaming in the background. :)

(encouraging screaming of course!!)

during the game i could tell something was wrong with brigg.
he was just acting weird.
so as he was walking up to me after the last game he says, "mom, i don't feel good."
he had a sore throat and a fever.
slept the whole way home.

he took a shower and laid down when we got home, but i did get him outside for one photo with his mother for mother's day.
pretty good fake smile, i must say!

we've trained him well...

paul had the garden beds filled with dirt when we got home.
i finished up our plans and we headed to the nursery to get our plants.
got them home and got EVERYTHING planted.

of course the girls were very very helpful.
ha! :)
it was definitely a family affair.

you can see my garden plans printed off above.
paul relentlessly made fun of me.
but that's ok.
i felt very organized.

and now we wait.
and weed.
and water.
and watch.
i cannot WAIT to see the fruits of our labor.

it was nearly a perfect mother's day.
if brigg hadn't been sick, it would have been perfect.
we couldn't have asked for better weather.
and my family is amazing.
love them so much.

happy mother's day 2011!
