Mother's day weekend

If you click on the image to make it bigger you'll notice my husband's nose is covered in pollen (that's what happens when you go around smelling every flower you see)

On Saturday we went for a walk because the rain finally stopped in our area and Clio the beagle was desperate to be out; she hates to be out in the rain so she has been pretty sad for about two weeks. We went to the wetlands park which is local and we love it. The boys love wading in the streams and there's always wildlife to enjoy. We've had beaver's dams, salamanders, blue herons, snakes, turtles, ducks, geese,etc;yesterday we saw a blue heron and geese with chicks.

Sunday morning we went to see Star Trek the movie. I loved it! There was lots of action to keep you on the edge of your seat which was nicely balanced by the character's stories, we are all ready to see it again! I was telling my kids how when the Star Trek 1960's series was first on, I was in Cuba so my dad would put our little tv antenna on the balcony to get the US reception so we could watch the show; my oldest thought that it was pretty amazing that I wanted to watch the show since it was in a language I could not understand. Well, mom and dad understood English so they would summarize for my brother and I.

The afternoon we spend at home having a cookout with my mom. It was a beautiful afternoon to enjoy the backyard.

I'm finishing up the binding on the quilt and after my brother and SIL receive it I will post pictures.

I hope you all had as nice a weekend as I did!


  1. I loved it too! Happy Mother's Day!

  2. Lovely pictures! I suppose that lush green is worth all the rain we've had. Maybe.


I love hearing from you!
