Participating in 'Five Favorites' Hosted over at http://moxiewife.com/
Mother's Day began Saturday...we were going on an adventure.
Getting in the car with Aaron's announcement of a 'surprise' trip. That surprise started with a 3.5 hour car ride which was unexpected. Now, if you have lots of littles, you might know an unequipped 3.5 hour road trip is a recipe for disaster. And so, after 1.5 hours I got cranky. And at 2 hours I had it. BUT at about the had it moment, cars came to a rushing stop on the highway, which caused my 'not totally clicked in backseat seat' to click out. And I went flying, hitting both my head and my arm so hard I started crying. THEN I was pissed and let Aaron know it.

Aaron surprised us with a trip to the Frederick Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Garden in Grand Rapids, complete with a picnic lunch. The picnic lunch was my favorite. Shrimp Ceviche on Cucumber slices with avocado! Heaven. It was my second favorite part of the day.
|Dad is a chef|
|It was so delicious|
|So happy together...|
The Frederick Meijer Garden has a great place called the 'Children's Garden'. It is huge and fun and super special. The cutest thing though? This little door, just for kids. It was my third favorite part of the day.
|If the adorable isn't just about melting your heart, you are not human|
|Following his brother|
Watching the boys play with boats, sand, and have a tea part with their dad was my fourth favorite part of the day.
|brothers and best friends...sometimes ;)|
|His Cheese face, what are you gonna do?|
|Love that boy|
|For serious...who needs a girl?|
My fifth favorite part of the day was walking around the Sculpture Garden with the boys and lil' Aaron's constant questions of, 'what's that mama?'.
|um, so none of my children are looking at the camera #daddypic|
|What a guy!|
|it's a big horse|
All and all a very successful surprise Mother's Day trip.
