I love Mothers Day, it’s the perfect way to celebrates our moms, aunts, grandmas and all of the women who raised us.
Usually we don’t go out on Mother’s Day but this year I decided to join my mom at her church’s annual Mother’s Day dinner.
We all got dressed up (I put on sandals for the first time this season) and we were off! My aunt came to get us and took a picture with the kids, isn’t she fab?
When we got there the kids were nice and calm because they didn’t know anyone, however as the night went on they got really friendly–really fast.
They were running and giggling and I was regretting wearing those heels! It was quite the sight seeing me run after my almost 1.5 year old who decided he wanted to greet every single attendee at the 200 person dinner.
The four year old meanwhile was incredibly full of energy (when is he not?) and was egging his brother on.
As you can imagine there was a lot of chasing from mommy and daddy especially because baby did not want to stay in anyone’s hand, he just wanted to go go go!
A highlight for me however was that the church hired a steel band to entertain us while we ate. Fun fact about me is that I used to PLAY the steel pan when I was in junior high school. I hated it. But I played non the less. I even hired a steel band for the first part of my wedding!
We ate our dinner, the kids kept running and we were able to put them down for a quick bedtime as soon as we got in. It was hectic, a bit crazy but I probably wouldn’t have done anything else Besides, the boys make my mom so happy I can’t help but indulge her.
