This past week was great!
Vegas went really well. Our flights were smooth (after we were on the plane and past the near riot that broke out in Newark!!), the weather was fantastic and our patient's preps went perfectly. She cried for joy. Awesome.
Friday we had the day to ourselves out there, so we spent it by the pool sipping Mango daiquiris and relaxing. Awesome!
Sophia really enjoyed herself with the Kurtz's while I was away and Mom and Denise took great care of Miss Alena. Fred has been covering two positions at work and is super busy!!
Alena even got to go camping for the weekend for the first time. She did great and loved it.
Sophia and I went to Mother's Day breakfast together. She is becoming such a mature young lady. It was so nice for her and I to be able to do something together. Denise and the kids joined us and we had a very nice time. We took the kids to play at a park and then visited an arboretum afterwards. We were able to take some really beautiful pictures.
Alena arrived home from camping in the late afternoon. I was DYING to see her. Hearing her say "mommy" was music to my ears. I really enjoy rocking her and cuddling as she settles in to sleep. I look at her sweet face and wonder what thoughts are going through her little head. I think of her birth mom often and pray for her. She has given me the most beautiful gift possible this Mother's Day. Beyond awesome.
I am so thankful to be the mom of these two girls each and everyday.
