Gone Fishin’

Mother’s Day Weekend was excellent!! Lots of beautiful weather and time spent outside in the fresh air. 

Chris fixed an amazing breakfast, and then surprised me with some new charms for my Pandora bracelet.  I got a “B” and a letter “E” which was so thoughtful.  He also bought me a little house, he said it would be good to have something that represents what pays the bills around here.  Gotta love his style.

We visited the strawberry patch on Sunday.  It was a bit early for picking, but we did manage to get some delicious strawberry ice cream.  Then lunch at my favorite Gourmet Deli and Grocery Store.  Toasted sandwich with portabella mushrooms, arugula, and spicy pimento spread.  Can you tell that I think about food a lot?

I just reached the point this week that my pants are getting a bit too tight and won’t button.  16 weeks.  Wow, it already seems like it is going by so so fast.  I know this summer is going to fly by, and then we are going to be welcoming this new baby to our house. 


 These two boys got to live it up on Saturday morning and fish off of the dock.  It only took five minutes before they realized that fishing is a boring sport, and it much more fun to splash sticks in the water.  This probably lead to the fact that we didn’t catch a fish for a while.  Until all of the sudden Lindsay reeled this little baby in…


The boys were really intrigued and got some up close and personal fish time.  At first they weren’t so sure…


Then they came around.


Chris couldn’t be out fished by my little sister, so he spent the remainder of the morning trying to catch something bigger and better.



Only to be out smarted by little boys with better plans.



All in all it was a great morning fishing off the dock, and celebrating Mother’s Day. 



happy mother’s day to all of you fabulous mommies out there!!
