We were fortunate to be in Canada for Mother's Day this year, although I believe that Luke planned it that way so that he wouldn't have to make me dinner or bring me breakfast in bed. The day before Mother's Day we went with Papahashi, JJ and Koko to take Grandma out for Mother's Day and to visit the rest of the Grandma's (my boys Great Grandma's).
I am so lucky to have such great grandmothers in my life, and amazing mothers as well. My own mom is still helping me and taking care of me, and even took a loud (and then screaming) Tracen out during sacrament meeting on Mother's Day. Tracen must have known it was a special day, and he woke me up that morning with poop falling out of his diaper on the floor (he was trying to take it off), and as usual was non-stop all day long. Nana said she doesn't think she's ever seen him holding still, and that he's discovered perpetual motion. But I am so grateful for these two boys of mine that have made me a mother, I do love that I get to spend my days with them, and that they truly are my best friends.

|Grandma and the blanket that she made for Rai. It is so soft and beautiful.|
|Rai and Aunt Dawne. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures on my camera of Nana and the boys. Tracen was running wild at this point and my Dad took him back outside so I could visit with Nana and Dawne.|
|Great Grandma Anderson. Tracen keeps talking about "momma's mommy" and seeing cousins while we were there.|
|As you can see, Grandma sure loved to hold Rai.|
