Spider Lilies at Landsford Canal

Spider Lilies at Landsford Canal

  I know it’s a little bit late, but my Mother’s Day was so cool I just had to share!  Ever since I took the kids to Landsford Canal back when Baby Zu was only 3 months old I have been wanting to go back.  Specifically, I’ve been wanting to kayak along the river through all of the spider lilies.  Every year for 6 weeks between May and June, the flowers put on a spectacular show on a small section of the Catawba river.  The quarter-mile stretch of blossoms is not only breathtaking, but it also happens to be the largest…Read the rest of this entry →

“You’re a Good Mom.”

“You’re a Good Mom.”

Today’s post is for the moms out there that find themselves living in doubt.  It’s an experience that happened a couple of months ago when our family was vacationing in Disney World for my son’s 5th birthday.  I hope that it will serve as a reminder to not underestimate the power that we have to encourage (or discourage) our fellow moms… It started out as nothing more than a stubborn whine, easily drowned out by the swarms of folks making their way through Frontierland.  I glanced around – no one had even batted an eye.  I calmly scooted my rocking chair…Read the rest of this entry →

Green Hour Connection: A “Yoforic” Mother’s Day

Green Hour Connection: A “Yoforic” Mother’s Day

My favorite Green Hour moment of the week came last Sunday, when my two favorite boys treated me to a lovely afternoon of outdoor fun and frozen treats!  Sunny, breezy, and temps in the mid-70’s – I couldn’t have asked for better Mother’s Day weather!  Cragbaby’s first gift to Mommy was taking a 3.5 hour nap, giving me plenty of time to get my closet organized (for those of you that don’t know, we had just moved into our new house the day before!)  When he finally woke up, we hooked up the bike trailer and headed off to Yoforia…Read the rest of this entry →
