Mother's Day!

For Mother's Day we were able to go to my cousins house for
some great BBQ!!! I had to take a picture of the beautiful cookies
Scott gave me from the best bakery in the whole world!!! I love
all the flowers around our yard...the roses are blooming everywhere,
the Calla Lillies are as tall as the kids, and the trees that were once
twigs are loaded with vibrant colors. I didn't realize how much I've
missed spring, it's so beautiful! It was a wonderful mother's day being
around the family this year. Thanks to my wonderful husband and children
for making it a great day!!!

Tulips, tulips and more tulips!!!

So, back in May we went to the tulip festival in Woodburn. To say it was beautiful would be an understatement! It was amazing! Rows and rows of tulips as far as the eye could see. On the way there Elena was asking where we were going, I explained to her what it was, and she said, "That's all, how boring!!!"Leave it to my daughter to bring out the theatrics. Once we got there, we gave her the digital camera and she just disappeared into the tulips. I think she took about
200 pictures. They were awesome pictures. Hers were better than ours. She would lay right down on the ground and aim the camera straight up the stem of the tulips, it was so cool looking. She had so much fun taking pictures that she was sad when we had to much for being so bored!!!
