Mothers Day

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I feel a little envious towards those that got a sleep in. I was up at 6:00AM to get my little family and myself ready to head into Perth and do a 4KM fun for the Mother Day Classic.

This is how I spent my Mothers Day











The boys had a great morning full of bouncy castles, circus acts and lots of food and fun while I ran and earned myself another MDC medal to add to my collection. These little circles of metal mean a lot more to me than a sleep in and breakfast in bed or fancy gifts (although I was blessed with a couple of those as well) Even though I would love to have that sleep in I hope that by giving up those myself I can help someone enjoy their mother through the research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer.

I got to enjoy the rest of the day though. We had a lovely takeout lunch with my mother-in-law where the boys gave me their gifts,a sweet little elephant for my Pandora, some fudge that Michael made a school and a cute book from my MIL, after which I crashed on the couch and the boys played the WII. But I think the best gift of all was having my little family there to support me during my run. I couldn’t have been more blessed this Mothers Day than to be able to spent it with the little people who make this day so special for me.
