My First Mother's Day!

Sunday was my first Mother's Day!  Last year Carson was still in my belly and was waiting to make his grand entrance into this world!

We decided to spend the day with our moms at the zoo.  Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side and it only got into the 50's.  We didn't let that ruin our plans, though!

Before we went to the zoo, we spent our morning hanging out at home and being lazy.  Carson and Nick both got me potted flowers to put on our back patio and cute cards!

While we were at the zoo Carson had his first experience at the petting zoo!  I used to be one of those people thinking "Ew, gross.  WHO would let their kids in with those dirty animals?"  I know who now, people who want their kids to have fun and learn by exploration! :)  Carson LOVED it!  He loved "chasing" the [slow] goats and petting them.  The goats were good sports since Carson is still working on his "gentle" petting. 

Here's a picture of all 3 moms and my little family of 3!
