mother's day weekend

wes asked coen the following question and wrote the answers in my mothers day card. geese being a mama is the best thing ever. 

question: what is your favorite thing about mama? 
1. when she says nice words to me
2. snuggles
3. i like her to read cat in the hat 
4. kisses 
5. i like when she calls me pilot

coen made me this teapot in preschool on thursday and was SO proud and excited to give it to me. seeing his little face light up as he said, "happy mother's day!" made that monthly tuition 100% worth every penny. i am such a lucky mama. what i loved most about his picture was how well he wrote his own name! i was so shocked to see such a clean C-O-E-N. i asked him to write it for me later that day, and he did...5 times. so proud of him! 

we had a wonderful mother's day weekend that started off with an afternoon beach trip on saturday. we took a walk out on the lava rocks and saw the biggest sea turtle we have ever seen. he was a giant. 

on sunday morning i woke up to these two cooking a wonderful mother's day breakfast. mushroom and cheese frittata, and crepes with strawberries, whip cream, bananas and chocolate syrup. lucky mama! 

after breakfast we headed up to the volcano and took a hike at bird park. it was so beautiful. this forest really reminds me on the northwest. we ended our journey at a small garden cafe in volcano village. what a perfect day, (and i will say it again) what a lucky mama!
