Part of Mothers Day!!!

We had a gorgeous Mother's Day at the Arboretum!! I have many more pictures to add of this day but my disk is saying it "can't be read on this computer" - until I figure THAT out I'll leave you with these photos. We met my mom and dad, and sister, Jae, her hubby John, and Kai out there for a beautiful picnic! I got to use my picnic basket again and had a DELICIOUS lunch from central market with pasta, caprese salad (tomatoes and mozzerella w/ basil), and fresh fruit!

This is my mom with one of the gifts I gave her!

For those of you who don't know, my mom's mom passed away when my mom was 10 yrs. old. Before she passed away she had pinned this poem, from a cutout out of a newspaper, to the wall in the hallway of their house. My mom, after her mother passed, committed to learning it by memory because she figured her mom must have REALLY liked it to just tack it up on the wall like that! Needless to say, it's a poem that has been handed down, given as a gift in other ways (one Christmas we (me and my sisters) gave her the last picture of my mom, with her mom, smiling and looking at eachother, in a frame with this poem - it was an emotional gift opening type of Christmas!). This year I decided to put it on a painting for her to hang and be reminded of how awesome her mom truly was!

Here's Kaden, Kai, and Kinsley in front of the flowers!

Me with my two little blessings!

And Jae, Mom, and I! If you haven't ever been to the Dallas Arboretum - GO!!! You are in for a treat! It is absolutely gorgeous! Right now they are having an exhibit of lifesize houses made out of flowers depicting the character's houses in the story of Peter Rabbit - its precious!

Again, I PROMISE more pics to come of this, our fabulous Friday at my friend Jenny's, pics of what Curt and the kids did for me for Mothers Day, etc. You won't want to miss it so stay tuned!!!!
