Just a walk in the park...

(actually, through the neighborhood, but it made for a nice title!)

Isn't every day Mother's Day?

Well, Happy Mother's Day (a day late!) to all you mothers out there! The weekend slipped by quickly...with me in bed for most of it! I caught some kind of nasty virus and have been sick since last Tuesday night. Finally, Saturday afternoon, the doctor recommended that I go to the ER. We actually went to a walk-in clinic, which was much faster and cheaper, and I got great care there. They gave me a full liter of fluids via IV, and included some pretty powerful drugs that did me in! However, by that night, all the sick feelings went away. I was just left feeling
p-r-e-t-t-y loopy and so tired! They also put me on a very strict diet (which made my mom's fabulous Mother's Day meal not so fabulous for me!). I am still pretty tired today, but definitely feeling tons better; by tomorrow, I expect to be in full swing again. All that to say...Mother's Day slipped by very quietly and completely and utterly PICTURELESS!!! We are having a fun family day on Saturday, hopefully, and I'll post some pictures then!
On Monday, before I got sick, we had our friend, and Robb's boss, take some outdoor pictures of Payton. He has a really, really great camera and did a very nice job. Here are a few of our favorites!

I decided that as nice as Mother's Day can be, so many plain, "everyday" days of the year feel just as special, with a husband as sweet as Robb, and a baby girl as good and charming as Payton!
