A good weekend.

Mother's Day 2012... We went to see my mom over the weekend and had such a nice visit.  My mom has undoubtedly had the hardest year of her life.  Like many women (myself included) she was swept off her feet at a young age by a man (my dad;))  and he treated her like a queen.  Not to say she couldn't do things on her own but my dad did a lot as far as finances go and outside house work so with him no longer here it was her learning to do everything he did.  Needless to's been a really hard year.

My mom is such a strong woman and I don't think she even realizes it.  I'm very proud of you mom and so proud to be your daughter!  I love you so very much!!!

So Saturday we went to the local berry farm where Bennett decided he wanted to pick the "ballberries" as he calls them;)...

Bennett loooves his "mammy" (Grammy).

Riding the tractor out to the berries is always a big highlight!
(just now noticing the backside of some women in our pic-Ha!)

Later on the girls went fishing with their daddy...

Ainsley didn't like the whole process of waiting...hmmm not sure where she got that from;) Plus she got a tad bit scared when they actually did bite-lol. But Harper stuck it out and ended up catching 2 fish and one big cat fish that broke the line.  

Harper patiently waiting for a fish to bite.

Harper and Mike saw a snake swimming in the water as well.  Ainsley missed all of this because she didn't like waiting and according to her she's a "scaredy cat".  Oh Ainsley.

More pics from our weekend...

I woke up to sweet posters, cards and books the girls had made as well as coffee in bed and then a nice breakfast with everyone.  Mike pretty much did everything- fed, changed diapers, dressed, put to bed- you know all the stuff most of us moms do.  It's nice to have a break one day;) 

Hope all the moms out there had a good day as well!!
