Mother's Day in Mobile

Family together for Mother's Day

After leaving Galveston Island, we headed towards Mobile. With a quick overnight stop at Walmart, we finally made it to Meaher State Park, for the 3rd time in 3 years.

We just needed one night with hookups (hello humidity)! Jonathan actually surprised me by running to the local Fresh Market and grabbing some flowers AND desert! Thanks, babe!

I don't think there can ever be too many strawberries, do you?

I woke up early on Sunday (Mother’s Day) and went out to the dock to combat waking up in a bad mood. It’s amazing what just a few minutes of time to yourself can do for your soul. Lots of deep breaths and positive affirmation and I was ready to head back inside…

And that’s when my kids made me cry on Mother’s Day. Grab some tissues!

The sweetest notes and hugs and I knew that I wouldn’t be able to hold it together much longer…quick, we have to do something else!

So we packed up and headed to Pensacola Florida.
