Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Long Time No See

It had been a while since I'd seen my dad, but he, Sheri, my brother, Shelly and the kiddos made a trip to Dallas last weekend for a fun filled couple of days. We spent a lot of time chatting and catching up. Riley spent a little time teaching Uncle Steve and Pop's how to play horseshoes in our backyard. That boy can throw! I think we have a little pitcher on our hands.

We took the family to our neighborhood pool, for a picnic and some fun in the sun. Kaylin spent some time building the best sand castles you can imagine while Riley tried some surfing. Steve's parents, Steph and Gene got to meet us at the pool too, so we had a little party. That night the kids hadn't had enough of the water sports, so they decided to pull out the slip and slide while Uncle Steve did some grilling. We spent some time in the backyard talking and just relaxing. We ended our fun Saturday with brownies...Riley liked cleaning the bowl!

Sunday everyone went home. it's never as much fun to say goodbye as it is to say hello!
