What I wanted this year was to be near water and take photos. Water nourishes my soul and I love to take photos of my kids' smiling faces. Again, my day- I get what I want.
So, The Big Guy and The Boy packed a picnic lunch and we drove out to the lake- the biggest body of water within umpteen states- and spent the day doing what I wanted to do.
We walked on the beach.
We looked for shells.
Listened to the breeze.
And rode the horsies. Yeah. That happened.
And then we took a nice group photo with everyone smiling, just like I wanted.
No, I said with everybody smiling.
Hey! Little girl in the blue! That means you, kiddo.
You know what?
It was still an absolutely wonderful Mother's Day.
