This year after moving, having morning sickness and all the craziness that comes with a new house, I was itching to just get away! So, for mother's day I told Jason I wanted to just go to church, grab something for lunch and head up to the Sequoia's for the day. We took a picnic dinner in case we wanted to stay for a while, but it started to get to cold by then. We went to the big trees and had a wonderful walk and time of just exploring. The kids LOVED the big trees and being in nature. It was so nice to get out and not be reminded of all the things I needed to do at home. I even bought a lot of treats that I don't usually buy (candy, cookies, etc), and it was so fun!

Thanks to Jason who helped plan an amazing mother's day!
