Girls' Night, Bridal Shower & Mother's Day

Ray took the boys to the fathers and sons campout, so of  course a girls' night was in order! 
 It was fun to have three sisters and my mom join Marinne and I.

 We got pedicures, went out to eat, then came back to my house for a movie and treats.
The next day was Bethany's bridal shower...
 The bride-to-be
 Aunt Natalli and Brynlee
 Marinne and Grandma

For Mother's Day, Ray made me a delicious breakfast in bed, and gave me these chocolate dipped strawberries!
We had a yummy dinner at mom's to finish off the day.  I am so grateful for her example.  She's the best mom ever!  I'm also blessed to be a mom to great kids!
I recently read Little Women for our book club, and this quote about moms stuck with me:
"You are the sunshine maker of the family."
(Marmee says this to Meg)
I think that's exactly what a mom should be, and it's definitely something I can work on and strive to become.
