Happy UnMother's Day

For Mother's Day, we called both our Moms, wished them a happy day, went to Church where the women were sung to in Relief Society by primary kids-best thing ever.  Then we headed to Provo Canyon, specifically South Fork Park.  It was perfect.  Unfortunately, everyone else decided a Mother's Day picnic was a good idea too, so we shared the park with dozens of other families.  We were able to score a sweet little spot tucked away from the rest of the park, right next to the creek.  We roasted bratwurst (complete with sauerkraut), baked tater tots, and Cadburry caramel eggs.  Basically, we didn't plan ahead and just gathered up whatever we could scrounge at our house ha ha.  It was still fun and Sal had a blast.  She is kind of afraid of water, so we made sure to get her in  the water to get more comfortable with it.  She still wasn't really feeling it, but she loved being up there.

After we finished our lunch, we hiked up the trail.  For some reason we both decided to wear sandals and hiking in them was not too fun.  Sal was in love though.  We barely saw her.  Randal takes her mountain biking sometimes and she loves to run up and down the trails.  Seriously, having a dog is the best.  She makes things so much more fun.  I may not be a mom, but I am a pup mom and I love it...except when she barks.

Nervous about the water

Ready to go hike 

Always ahead of us

When we got back I was able to listen to Drake's call from his mission.  I can't believe he only has 6 months left!  I've missed him and I'm so excited for him to come back.

And in honor of Mother's Day...some pictures of us with our Mom's...
She thinks she's tall... 
When my mom visited us in Texas.  Both of their faces are priceless.  
Randal looks like a 6 year old boy here too.
