Happy Mother's Day

We had a really nice weekend. The weather was beautiful on Saturday so we went to pick out my Mother's Day gift. A new tree for our front yard. There has been a void there since we had to take an old tree down a couple of years ago. I have been wanting one for a while now so that is what Brian said he would do. :) We went to the nursery (which was very busy) and we got to drive around on a 4-wheel gator. You should have seen Garrett's face! It was a grin from ear to ear. He was so excited to be on this thing that he didn't even talk! and that is rare! I picked out a Flowering Cherry Tree. It is so pretty in the spring with light pink double blossoms. It will look so nice in the front yard! Sunday I got to sleep in and then Garrett and Brian took me out to breakfast. Garrett made me a hand print painting for a present and gave me a beautiful bouquet of roses. The weather was yucky --raining and cold-- so we didn't do too much the rest of the day. We watched a movie (Barney of course) and had dinner. It was a nice day and weekend. I hope all the Mom's had a nice Mother's Day too!

No breakfast in bed? Brian is a slacker :)
So are they comming to plant the tree with a big machine or do you get to sit on the front steps sipping lemonade while Brian digs a hole?

Of course I get to sit on the front steps and sip lemonade!
