     Sometimes there are great surprises and sometimes there are not so great surprises. Typically I love surprises! When it comes to my car though I could go with never seeing another surprise ever ever again!

     Three weeks ago my car died on my way to story time with the kids. Thanks to some wonderful friends I got a tow home. Came to find out our engine motor was dead. We decided a motor replacement was our best bet and an expensive repair. Three weeks of happy life then on my trip to drop Tyler off in Nevada for the summer it died again. Turns out it was alternator and engine coil issues. Got them fixed and now I want to get rid of my car ASAP ha ha. Bad surprises!

     On the other hand Friday evening I was playing outside with my kids and the neighbors kids bracing myself for a lonely Mother's day when a shadow cast overhead. I looked up and saw my hubby standing over me smiling! What a great surprise! He drove back into Provo for the weekend for my mother's day present. I loved it!

I love this man!

We spent Saturday sleeping in, shopping, outside at the park, driving up the canyon, then ended it at a movie. It was a perfectly lazy weekend!

We rounded out our Mother's day weekend at my mom's with the family, having dinner, visiting, and cuddling this sweet new baby. Check out that hair! 

     A quick note on mother's, My mother is an amazing example to me of strength, hard work, love and kindness. She is quite funny and very honest, which may be where I get my bluntness from. She is one of the smartest people I know. She is a fabulous mother and an even better grandma! My kids and I are lucky! My mother in law raised me an amazing husband, this speaks miles for the kind of woman she is. I know I am truly lucky to be married to that man and I could never thank her enough for that! She is also a wonderful grandmother! I have truly been blessed to become a mother of my own to two great kids and I hope I can live up to all the wonderful examples of mother's I have in my life!
