Mother's Day Weekend Pictures

Eddie and I had a wonderful weekend with our mothers. On Saturday, we went to Eddie's mother's, and my MIL and her daughter and I went shopping. We had a great time. We found lots of sales and bought several things that we needed. After we finished shopping, we went back to my MIL's house and had hamburgers that Eddie had cooked on the grill.

My MIL and her husband moved into a different house about a year and a half ago and she said recently that she has been missing her yellow rose bush so badly. I remembered that one day while they were still living at their old house I had taken a picture of her rose bush with my digital camera. I was amazed at how well the photo came out, so I decided to have it enlarged and frame it for her. I gave it to her yesterday, and she was so touched that she cried. The good thing about this whole thing is that the man who bought her house, told her that she could come and dig up any of her old plants that she wants, so Eddie is going to take her soon to get her yellow rose bush and any other plants that she wants from there. Here is the photo.

On Sunday, my mother came over to our house and we grilled out BBQ chicken. It was delicious.

Before my mom got there on Saturday, I decided to take a picture of the table setting. It was nothing elaborate, just a simple table setting that I thought was pretty and reminded me of Spring.

Later, after my mom had gone home, I was fooling around with the camera and took several photos of our cat, Heckle. He is so funny.


Ahhh, that feels good!

Where did that bird go?

Lastly, I noticed that my peonies are beginning to bloom, so I couldn't resist taking these pictures and sharing them with you.
