a PERFECT early Mother's Day outing :)

Yesterday Adam took me down to Thanksgiving Point to celebrate Mother's Day a tad early...just the three of us :) to enjoy the Tulip Festival that was going on.

We soaked up a warm sun with a light breeze, saw thousands of gorgeous tulips in full bloom, smiled and laughed as we watched Brooks run around and explore, made a wish after tossing a penny in a fountain, snuck in a few sweet kisses here & there, and even snapped a few photos next to a fantastically large sculpture of Noah's Ark.

After a lovely time at the gardens, we went out for a delicious dinner at the Harvest Restaurant.
Brooks was so wonderful!! He's been a little too antsy lately to go anywhere nice, but he was so good! Adam about passed out from a food coma from his scrumptious buttermilk fried chicken and rich mashed potatoes. And we topped off our meal with creme brulee...that ended up being on-the-house just because :) It was SUCH a great night!
My two men make me the LUCKIEST girl out there! I'm so grateful to my amazing Adam for supporting me in my role as a mother, and my sweet Brooks who has made motherhood better than I ever dreamed.

A tulip festival?! How very fun and perfect for a Mother's Day outing!! I love & adore all of the sweet pictures, but my two favorites are 1) the sweet Haley/Brooks baby toss with the shimmering sun and the beautiful landscape behind you. How GORGEOUS. Looks like the cover of a book. 2) You and Brooks peeking around the wall. Made me giggle a little bit...y'all are both so adorable.

This is such a beautiful post...and will leave a wonderful memory for years to come, I'm sure!

p.s. Can you guess how much I love your outfit?? Here's a hint....A LOT!
