There are over a gabagillion reasons why I love my Mom so much, but here are just a few. Especially since being married and trying to be a good wife and trying to prepare to be a mother some day, I'm in awe at how lucky I am to have such an awesome Mom!
  • She feeds me. And feeds me well:) It's so fun when we go out to breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everyday. It's always nice to be fed, but I love the time we have to sit and talk with each other. She makes wonderful Sunday dinners too! Yumm!
  • She takes us out for treats. Whether it's Nielsen's, Maggie Moos, the Cocoa Cafe, etc.
  • We have fun shopping together:) All over the place. Gardner Village, Basket Loft, the mall, etc.
  • She's so good to Aaron and always makes sure he has nice suits to wear:)
  • She's a good teacher, and good at giving advice. She always checks up on me to see how I'm doing and sends me books and articles that are always informative and helpful. She's always there when I need someone to talk to.
  • She's an animal lover, just like me! She so good to our little Barkles, the Princess and Avacado. We always have fun at the dog park together.
  • She takes us on vacations! St. George, Florida, San Francisco, Boston, etc. all because Mom was our little vacation planner. Never going anywhere without a plan. We have had so many good, fun, family times.
There are so many more reasons why I love my beautiful mother. I feel so blessed to have her as my own:) I hope you have the most wonderful birthday and know that I will be thinking about you and partying it up myself. hehe. Make sure to take lots of pictures of your fun weekend with Anita and Bob and keep me posted. I love you very much! Have a very Happy Birthday! xoxo

Barkley the Swimmer!

Here are some pictures and a video of the puppy at his new favorite place:) He loved our visits up to Dog Lake last week! Here is a map of the trails we took up there. It's a good hike! If you take the little water trail, round trip it takes about 2 hours. The big water trail is very pretty too and isn't as much of an incline but does take a bit longer since it's an extra mile. So if you're looking to cool off, and Barkley is too, you should check out DOG LAKE. Wish I could be there to hike up there too. Happy Swimming!
