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."

Riley's 5th Birthday

Last weekend we drove down to San Angelo with mom and grandma to celebrate Riley's 5th birthday. Friday night we had a celebratory dinner at Texas Roadhouse where Riley got put on a saddle and roped to "Happy Birthday".

Saturday was the big party! Drew and Shelly got everything together down at their awesome cabin, complete with kiddie pool, a pool table, air hockey, fajitas and of course b-day cake. Riley had some of his buddies from school, neighbors and some cousins come out to the house for the party. These blow-up pools these days are a lot fancier than the ones we had as kids. ;) The kids had a blast, and the adults had a little fun too! ;) Then Sunday we had to go home! =( I miss those kiddos so much and have so much fun every time I get to see them!

We head to Italy this Thursday. I'm sure i'll have lot's of pictures to share upon our return! Can't wait!
