.What a lovely Mother's Day weekend!
Friday we went to Pennsylvania to visit Rick's parents. I spent some time on the porch crocheting....
I tried taking some experimental shots with the camera -- first of a shed door (no retouching other than the border!).
And then a rusted, weathered thermometer with the barn in the background.
Sunday was the Button Blog Hop and an overall peaceful day -- making beads, playing games, a quiet dinner.
One of the best things about Mother's Day is thinking back over all those "mom" moments. I can't even put into words how I feel about my son. He arrived with a lot of fanfare, and I couldn't believe he was mine and I could actually KEEP him! How could I be trusted with something so awesome? So I found a few photos out of the 12,301, 982 that I have of the kidlet.

And later that same year with his own box of beads.

Being a mom is the hardest job I've ever loved with all my heart.
Thanks for letting me be your mom, Zack.
