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."

Preston is 4 Years Old!

Our big boy turned 4 last month! We had quite the celebration. His actual birthday was during the week, so Stephen took the day off and we celebrated Preston all day. We started with a decorated house for him to wake up to and kolaches. He opened a few gifts that morning. Then we got ready and went to GattiTown (one of Preston's favorite places). We ate pizza, watched Frozen and played lots of fun games. After GattiTown we drove over to Grapevine for more fun at LegoLand (another one of Preston's favorites). He always has a good time there and this time he was tall enough to drive the cars, he thought that was pretty cool! After a fun filled afternoon playing with Legos, we went to dinner at Rainforest Cafe. After a good meal, some singing, playing with animals and a delicious volcano dessert, we headed home for more gifts and cake. I this this kid had quite the birthday!

That weekend, Preston had decided that he didn't want a party with all of his friends this year, instead, he wanted the family to go Medieval Times (another favorite). We had the family over here for some fun knight games (decorate your shield, pin the mustache on the knight and some sword fighting), cake and gifts. After we spoiled our boy rotten, we headed to Medieval Times for dinner and the Tournament. We were fans of the Blue Knight, who actually won the battle. They announced Preston's name there and brought him another cake and candle to blow out. He was on top of the world. It was a great birthday shared with our wonderful family!  Happy birthday big boy! Here's to another fantastic year watching you grow up to be the incredible lil man you are! We love you with all our hearts!
