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."

Easter 2012



Easter was a bit of a whirlwind for us this year! We had just gotten back from vacation (a day late due to travel delays), so we literally drove into an Easter block party we had planned to attend Saturday when we arrived home. We dropped our bags in the entry hall and headed outside for the fun festivities. Preston had fun hunting eggs and playing in the bounce house with the neighbor kids. It was a lot of fun, but we got nothing done to prepare for company on Sunday!
Sunday morning came and the scramble began! We somehow managed to get everything and everyone ready before our family arrived for the festivities! This is the first year that I can remember missing church on Easter Sunday, which was sad. We had a lot of fun with the family once everyone arrived anyway. We had lots of yummy food, an indoor egg hunt with Preston (since it was raining outside in the morning), colored Easter eggs with everyone, watched Preston open his 4 Easter baskets (he's a little spoiled) and then finally the weather cleared up and we got to spend some time in the hot tub. Ultimately, despite the scramble, it was a great Easter!
