Brigette and Mason paid us a visit this Mother's Day weekend. We had a great hike at Perrot State Park overlooking the mighty Miss. Cullen, Mason and Simone started out running straight up the bluff and we had to remind them that it was a long hike - not a race! When we reached one of the higher lookouts, the rain clouds opened up. The cool water actually felt good, but made the trail a bit slick (that's when Dirk decided to hoist Simone onto his shoulders). On Mother's Day, we had a delicious brunch at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe - which also included a hike on the trails. The best part of the weekend was just spending time with the kids. Not only do they keep us on our toes, but they make us smile, induce belly laughs, and tire us out completely. And I wouldn't change any of it!
