My Favorite Quotes About Mothers + Weekly Post Recap

I hope y’all had a great weekend!  We spent Mother’s Day on the boat yesterday, and had the best time!  Wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!  Not kidding, the kids were so wiped that they went to bed at 6pm!  That gave Lanier and I plenty of time to hang out and relax on our back deck.  Our neighbors came over with some fresh shrimp, and we hung out until late in the evening.
