Family and Friends.

Happy Mother's Day!  As Andrew and I get even closer to becoming 2nd time parents, we find ourselves lamenting over the fact that our own mamas are so far away.  There is a new breed of mother appreciation born with your first child and it only grows (and grows and grows!).

The month of April was a full one for us - first with a very first trip to NYC for Andrew's mom!  She was able to stay for two whole weeks and we were so happy that she was able to make the trip:)

We had one day between the day Andrew's mom left and the day Lua and I left for Nebraska, during which Lua had the misfortune of eating some bad food :(  We weren't sure we'd be able to get on the plane (what with the puking and all), but thanks to liquid-tight tupperware, we made it!  Lua was actually feeling about 90% by the time we landed and stayed stupidly happy for the entire trip:)

We also had the amazing fortune to hang out with my dear, lovely mama-friend Laura and her two girls:)  Laura and I were roommates in college and to this day, she is one of the few people who I know loves me for me and isn't afraid to tell me what's what when I need to hear it.  Friends like this happen very rarely and I am so lucky that we have kept in touch to see and support each other through motherhood!

I'll say it again, Laura, I wish we were closer than an entire country apart :(  Your gals are beautiful (sorry I didn't get any good shots of Genevieve!).

And then it was back to Aurora for more family and fun at the zoo, where Lu got to ride her first horse!!!

Hope you all enjoyed your April as much as we did!
