#1,609 Mama Day.
by Erin Napier
There was so much mama love today! First there was mama love in Collins where we had lunch with Ben’s family at his grandparents’ house:
Then there was mama love for Mammaw with a box of Whitman’s chocolates, because that’s what my grandfather gave her for every special occasion and I wouldn’t let the tradition end when he passed away in 2001:
Later, there was love for my mama, too:
Still just has limber as she was in her cheerleading days:
Right after Ben and daddy had a fitness competition in the living room floor (which my super fit 60 year old father won… Woah):
But the biggest Mother’s Day surprise of all was Emily and Josh’s big announcement!
They told us on April 12, but I had to keep it a secret for a whole month. So glad the cat is finally out of the bag!
Happy mother’s day to all you wonderful ladies, too! I hope you felt loved today!
