Good To WOW Week 18–Mother’s Day

And what a Mother’s Day it was!  Rob made a wonderful breakfast and the kids blessed me with cards and hugs.  Gabe gave me a coupon good for one time of him preparing me a bowl of cereal.  I’ll take it!  Then we had a lovely time at church, I felt so blessed sitting there with my kids snuggled so close. Afterward we parted ways.  Rob took the kids to play at a park and I got to go have lunch with my friend and afterward we got to go on a little photo outing at a local nursery.  Though the lighting wasn’t the best it was nearly impossible to not get at least a decent photo in just about every shot.  So hard to choose just one or two or even three when you have a few hundred.  Arg! 

Please forgive me for not narrowing it down further, it was all I could do to get it down to just these.  DSC_7842

I thought the statue was hilarious.  Then I looked at the picture when I got home and realized all the tags on the flowers below him WERE him.  And because I can hear him saying “Gum, gum, dum-dum!” (Ever see Night at the Museum?)

My friend (you would know her as Cedar) who is truly a great friend and a great mom.

I was going to take a picture of this cute little bird but it mooned me so I got a picture of a cute little birdy behind instead.  :)

My favorite is the red flowers, though I like the orange daisy's too, and all the others! I want to go back and try again--maybe with a macro lens? Did you see Jill's dandelions? That is what macros are for!

Thanks!
