I love being a mom.....

I don't normally post about my family - they're all so dear to my heart and I like to keep them there.
But, since Mother's Day is just around the corner, my heart wants to open up and share with you a glimpse into my life as "mom".  
 
I have three amazing kids and one amazing step-daughter.
They have all chosen careers in which they help others.
I'm beyond proud of each of them.
I feel like the luckiest "mom" ever!
 
Riley - my oldest - loves the outdoors!
He's a former Marine and now owns his own property management company.
 
 
Here he is with his three kids - hiking in Montana this year.
He is the BEST dad.
love those faces....
 
 
Love you, Riley.
 
 
Gavin - my second son - is active duty in the Army.
Such a serious face....
 
 

 
He also loves biking - the BIG BOY kind!
(this is in front of our home - getting ready to RIDE)
 
 
 
 
Love you, Gav.
 
 
Here's Gavin & my daughter, Erin.
She is a Severe Disabilities teacher.
She has a huge heart.
 
 
..and she's a mom of two little cuties!
 
 
 
...cuties... 
I love my girls.
 
 
Here's Julia - my beautiful step-daughter.
 
 
She's an EMT and another "BEST" mom.
She lets Olivia wear stickers on her forehead.
 
 
Two cute girls!
 
 
I love everything about them!
I wish I could give each of them a giant squishy hug right now!
I love you so...........
