We did lots of shopping and she helped me find some maternity clothes. We went out to eat a lot, because Mom and I love not having to cook. She completely spoiled Johnny and me and of course we loved that, too.
We celebrated Mom's birthday with a delicious Mexican food dinner and a surprise birthday cake courtesy of Margo. The night my in-laws got back from two weeks in Australia, Margo still finds the energy to get Mom a birthday cake. She's a sweetheart.
Two things Mom loved about staying at my house: the horses and my growing belly.
Here we are shopping at City Creek. I'm pretty sure I shopped more in the two weeks my mom was here than I have in the last five years I've lived in Utah. It was tiring on this pregnant body!
I know Mother's Day is still over a week away, but I might as well take this time to say that I have the best mom in the world. She is caring, loving, smart, spiritual, and so patient. She's the perfect example of what a mom should be and I hope I can be just like her when I'm raising my son. I love that we can just talk and talk for hours at a time and not run out of things to say. My siblings and I are lucky to have her as our mom.
It's hard for me to live far away from my family back in Arkansas, but these visits make it a little bit easier. Except when the company leaves and I miss them so much because I remember how great it is to be around them. Of course Mom made it easier on me in her own thoughtful way. When I went to change the sheets upstairs, I found this little surprise.
Best Mom ever!
I'm thankful Mom came out here and I'm thankful Dad allowed it:) Now I get to look forward to our trip back home in June to see the family again!
