10: Mom and I spent the day together shopping, dining, and getting pampered which was all wonderful, but I'd have to say my favorite part of the day was when we just sat and talked for hours about past memories and dreams for the future. This was the best Mothers Day gift I could have received. I will always remember that day and hope we will get to share many more together in the years to come. | Riding the train at Pullen Park Backyard kiddie pool with River & Tristan Captain America enjoys a slushie (Moore Square, Downtown Raleigh)
