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."

Last week, Shelly and the kids came in town for a visit. It was nice to have a spontaneous visit and I got to take a day off to spend with them. We decided that we wanted to get pictures of all the cousins together and luckily Laura Squire (our photographer) found availability! Little did we know that we would spend our entire day off shopping for clothes for these kiddos to wear. Who knew it was so hard to coordinate?! We wore ourselves and the kids out, but we found some cute stuff! Despite the day of shopping, the kids were troopers and took some great shots! They ended the session with a dip in the pond in their new clothes! I think that was their favorite part! ;) Here are some of my favorites! Love these kiddos, they are all so precious!

Father's Day 2013

Last weekend we celebrated Father's Day and the wonderful dads in our lives! We went to eat at Patrizio's with Stephen's family then came back to our house for cake and gifts. We all got some time to hang out, the guys played basketball (despite the heat) and the dads were loaded down with wonderful gifts! We ended the evening with some checkers and a dip in the pool. Good times! So thankful to have so many wonderful dads to celebrate!
