Mother's Day

I had a lovely Mother's Day. The sun was shining. Bonus! We went to church, then out to a little cafe for breakfast, then to my favorite garden place for flowers for the yard, then home to get ready for a bike ride. We got some Subway and had a picnic along the bike trail.

I am LOVING my bike and riding in the sunshine is so fun. The trail we rode on is so beautiful. Lush green trees and grass and lots of wild life. I kept stopping to look at birds.....AND....a snake crossed our path. If you've been a long time Wildheart reader you would remember THIS. I do NOT like snakes. But, I'm very proud to say I've grown, I've progressed....or, I felt safe up on my bike. As a huge python little garter snake slithered across the path Mr. P hollered for us to stop. He remembered my last snake he quickly told me NOT to run over the snake. I'd do that....okay, I would but that would mean getting close to it. Blech!!
I calmly stayed on my bike and allowed the snake to cross. See! Progress! Cam told me he was shocked that I didn't run back to the car or rear my bike up and trample the snake to death. Gee rude is that? Actually, I knew if the snake came towards me I'd just jump into the trailer with the little kids and zip it shut. Pronto! Then I'd scream for Cam to get the snake OUT OF HERE!
Mr. P did ask if he could pick the snake up. NO! I haven't progrressed that far. NO, no.
Other than the snake it was a lovely day. I am so blessed to be a Mama to these 5 kids. I love being a Mom! Hardest job. But, also the best.
