Happy Mothers Day!
Another Mothers Day is upon us! So much has happened in the year since last Mothers Day, but the most fun thing for me to witness has been the bond being built between Michelle and Jack. As an observer of their relationship, I can see that they live for one another, and that is a pretty special thing to see. From the moment each of them wakes up, they want to be around the other all the way til the minute they go to bed. It is a two way street of love, and I am happy to be a pedestrian walking along side that road!
For our Mothers Day weekend, we decided to go to a local produce stop where we can pick strawberries. The particular area we went to has a Strawberry Festival in a few weeks, so we figured if they have a whole festival about their strawberries, they must be doing something right. So, we picked a bunch (with Jack eating most of the ones we picked before they even got close to being put in the bucket). Personally, I am not a huge strawberry fan, but these looked so great, I had to try them. They tasted every bit as good as they looked, and we had strawberry shortcake after dinner tonight. We also picked up a fresh local tomato while we were there, and it was the best tomato we have ever had too!
While we were driving to the strawberry patch, we saw some old time war planes flying over. There is a World War I and II aviation museum nearby, and they had some flights going on today so we stopped in and watched them fly for a few minutes. Jack loved seeing these planes in the air. They were slow prop planes, and not very loud so Jack could watch them without getting his little ears hurt.
Anyway, it was a great start to our Mothers Day weekend. Tomorrow, Mommy gets to sleep in while Jack and I make her breakfast. Other than that we don't plan on doing much.
To all the Mothers out there, Have a GREAT Mommies Day! We also want to send a special shout out to our own Mothers, Sherri and Regina on this most special day. Thanks for everything you have done for us Moms!
