Mother's Day 2013

"When you are a Mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child." ~Sophia Loren

Happy Mother's Day!
 The local babies are growing like weeds! These are the babies I showed you a couple of posts ago. We call them the 'teenagers' now because they are nearly as big as their Mothers!!

It was a nice sunny weekend here and Lily enjoyed napping in the sun too! (as she does most mornings!)

Spring is definitely in full swing here! The hummingbirds are here!

I just did catch this guy...he flew as I snapped the pic!!
My gardens are blooming like crazy due to the many rainy days we've had!

Of Course you know I have to have hibiscus in honor of Florida!! They don't make it through the winter here so I plant new ones every year!!

Here is my mom enjoying lunch outside in the beautiful weather!

She lives in an assisted living facility here and made me this beautiful wreath which I have proudly displayed on my front door in honor of Mother's Day!

 Mom and I spent the weekend together, I cooked her some of her favorites!

Seared Scallops, Sauted Shrimp and roasted asparagus for lunch and Steaks on the grill for Dinner!!!
 Remember this pic? Pam from I love Shelling took this of us the day we closed on our house in Florida.  I framed it for Mom and added coquinas as butterflies since my Mom LOVES butterflies!! How many do you find?

I hope all you Mothers out there had a pretty spring day to celebrate!!

Next weekend our Baby Girl graduates from Virginia Tech Vet School!!!! I am so excited and so very proud of her! Bet you know what the next post will be!!!!

Dr. Jessica Kraft, has such a great sound to it ...doesn't it?!!!!!

Hope you all had a great day!!
