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."

Weekend Getaway

A couple of weekends ago Stephen and I went to Lake Tenkiller in Oklahoma. We went to his companies lodge with some of his co-workers for a little getaway. It is always funny when we leave the kids. Regardless who is watching them, I become crazy mom and decide that I have to prepare for any possible situation with notes about everything, snacks and meal plans ready, along with clothes laid out for each day and night with corresponding notes for each child, any possible medicine that might be needed along with notes regarding dosage instructions for each med, insurance cards and phone numbers for all doctors, instruction for TV/DVD players and even phone numbers for delivery services in case food is needed. It is pretty funny! I had to take a picture to capture my craziness! This time Mimi and Papa watched both kids one night and then Steph and Gene took care of Kelsey the 2nd night. I think everyone had a really good time! Mimi and Papa took Preston to a birthday party, which he loved! I think Steph and Gene got a little sample of what its going to be like when their baby girl arrives! Stephen and I had a nice relaxing weekend! We sat by the lake, enjoyed the scenery, went for a nice run around the lake together, did a little karaoke, ate well, had a few drinks, sat by a camp fire, played some lawn games and enjoyed being kid-less for the weekend. It was a nice little getaway and the kids had a blast too! Of course we couldn't wait to get home to our babies! Thanks Mimi, Papa, Steph and Gene for taking such good care of them!
