Mother's Day - A Busy Weekend

What a WONDERFUL weekend!! It all started with a visit to my parents so I could spend some time with my Mom. We went to Amish Country which is our favorite past time, went out to eat and then my Mom fixed me a GREAT dinner for Mother's Day!! I told her that I would cook, but she insisted that she do it for me. I was of course thrilled!! There is nothing better then Mom's cooking!! Here is a picture of my Mom and I in the restaurant for lunch. Isn't she pretty? She is indeed "THE BEST MOM" that I could have ever asked for. God surely did bless me when he decided to give me her for a Mom. She is my closest friend and I love her dearly!!
Then we got home and we decided to play a little Wii bowling. My Mom LOVED it!! She is definitely a competitor, but a fun one!! We ended up staying up til 1 AM bowling and she had a blast!! Love her formation : )
Here she is celebrating 4 strikes right in a roll. She was thrilled, but of course didn't beat me (lol)
My Mother's Day was spent staying busy. It was something I wanted to do believe it or not. I wanted to get my plant stand out of the garage, take a few things to the Goodwill store, plant a few flowers and spend time with the little boy that brings me so much happiness!! Cameron wanted to mow so we mowed in between planting flowers and going down the slide. Doesn't he just look too cute in his hat? I was surprised that he wore it, but he did and I loved it on him.
I was in the process of pulling weeds and planting flowers and I found a toad back behind out air conditioner. I told Cameron it was a frog because he knows more about "frogs" then "toads," but he had so much fun seeing it and watching it jump. He didn't touch it (Whew) and I didn't either, but it was fun watching the little toad jump around. Cameron and I got a kick out of it. I guess that is probably why God granted me with a little boy...... I got as excited as he did about the toad (LOL). Anyway, here is a couple pics of Mr. Toad.

I leave you today with some beautiful flowers...... The purple flowers belong to my Mom, but the pink clematis is one from my backyard. I just wanted to say that I hope you all had a Happy Mother's Day and I hope you all have many more to come!!
