Mother's Day 2016

I'm so very glad that I live within 20 minutes of both my Mom and my Mother in law and get to share Mother's day with both of them. They are both gems. We spread out the love all weekend long starting with a cook out with my family Friday.
The weather was perfect so we all sat outside and watched Aiden run around like a wild child. 
Everyone just loves when I pull out my camera while they are stuffing their faces. Ha.
Aiden and his YaYa.
Saturday Drew and Aiden took me to Krohn's Conservatory for the Butterfly show! In all my years here, I have never been to the Butterfly show. Aiden and I both loved it! 
"Butterfly, where arrrrreeee you?"
After the butterfly show we walked to Eden park to play and then it was off to Echo for brunch. Their Flying pig sandwich (French toast is the bread) is to die for.  MMMmmmm.

Sunday morning both my Mamas came to church with us. I kept Aiden in my lap (because it's Mother's day, duh.) And Dara Maclean was a surprise special guest! Her song Blameless is just beautiful...go give it a listen.
Then it was off to my sister in law's where she and my brother in law did almost all the cooking. She even designed this adorable chalkboard art for the occasion and brought it outside so we could take pictures with it. She knows me well. 
Shirt from Ezra + Eli
Add in a dozen roses from each of my boys and I'd say this Mama was completely spoiled!
Thankful Mama doesn't even begin to describe it.
