Mother's Day Weekend ~ 2011

It's been a while since I got personal, I mean, I'm pretty personal here every day with you readers, but I haven't done an update, a family post and what better time to do that than after Mother's Day weekend, right?

On Friday the kiddo and I went strawberry picking with my mother-in-law. Here are a few shots from that fun experience:

And what's bizarre is that the child actually picked the same dress she wore last year to go pick strawberries. I have a feeling it isn't going to fit her for much longer, though. She's getting crazy tall.

We went out to dinner on Friday (I still have leftovers - yum!) and Saturday was kind of mellow. But then on Saturday night the husband and I got out for our first "date" since last April. And we decided to go enjoy a movie. We went to see Fast Five. Ah, hotness.

I couldn't find one of Paul Walker by himself, or close enough up from the movie (thanks Swagbucks and Photobucket for these pics) so I had to go old school:

I'm sure you forgive me ...

Anyway, yesterday we took the ILs and the kiddo swimming, and then grabbed a late lunch for Mom's Day. We spent the rest of the day at home, hanging out, and hubby determined that the kiddo has a killer swing and is a natural athlete. Seriously. He pitched and she actually HIT the ball. Amazing! Pics of that to come another day. Maybe even a video if I can get them on the site clearly enough.

So, that's that. Hope you all enjoyed your weekends. Whether you're a mom or you have one, Mother's Day is a special day (Hallmark Holiday or not!) to remind the women in your lives how special they are to all of you!
