Every year for Mother's Day we head to the Arboretum and enjoy a picnic packed by my sweet husband and kids. Must haves for our feast? Cold fried chicken, shrimp salad (my absolute favorite!), potato salad and cupcakes from our favorite bakery. John usually goes overboard and tries to stuff as many of my favorites as he can into our little picnic cooler... and I love him all the more for it.
My very first Mother's Day with our boy, Jack. He's so little in this picture!
Last Mother's Day with just one... I'm pregnant with Kate in this Mother's Day image.
Over the years, we discovered the perfect secluded picnic spot in the busy Arboretum.
