Mother's Day and Canobie Lake Park

I am writing this well after Mother's day. Blog catch up of sorts. Life has been topsy-turvy and I would like to get to a point where I live more in the current moment. That is harder than I thought. 
I would like to document for future times but I want to also live. 
Maybe someday my kids will read this blog and see their lives in a totally different view. 
I hope they see how much I love them and lived everyday for them.
Anyway....
I came home of Mother's day Eve we will call it to find my sneaky family sitting at a brand new picnic table. I had mentioned it and wanted one from Chippy but honestly put that thought away because my Mom has done tons of stuff for me lately to keep my ass out of the fire and I couldn't possibly ask for 1 more thing. 
This box was also filled with poems and love notes from all my kids. Addy and Lilly included. 
God can I cry any more lately?? 
This is the side effect of bottling up shit for 42 years and finally deciding to be true to yourself. 
The girls even picked out the table cloth and lantern. Love it all.
We have spend many evenings doing homework and eating dinner outside all ready in the few weeks since we got it. That is exactly what I had hoped for. 


The next day we headed to Canobie Lake Park. We slept late and headed out late and arrived to the longest line I have ever seen there but you know what? I let it go. We went to be together and the kids were happy riding 5 rides, 10 rides, whatever. It's about the journey isn't it?

Crazy Nana stood with both girls outside the Boston Tea party and got soaked. Ava and I rode the water tube ride. haunted house, Pirate ship? Sure. We didn't get on any roller coasters but we had fun.



Even a little hula-hoop dance party for Ava. She's pretty good!
