Great weekend!

We had such a great weekend! Chock full of fun and relaxation.

Saturday morning we met my friend and her family at the Reston Zoo. Her little boy just turned 3 and we were celebrating his birthday. Plus, she just had a baby a month ago and it gave me an opportunity to see her newest sweetheart. He is absolutely delicious. The zoo was really great. It's very small, yet really accessible. The monkeys were just feet away from us, and most of the animals weren't separated by chain-link fences, like at other zoos. We spent 2.5 hours there and the boys were still in great moods and we weren't exhausted and it was just really relaxing and enjoyable.

Later that afternoon, after naptime, we met up with my friend and her family again for a local moms' get-together at the House of Bounce. Carter was more interested in the water fountain rather than the bouncing, but he still had a great time. Plus, he got pink lemonade and pizza, which always makes for a happy boy.

Today, for Mother's Day, Chris' parents came over for brunch (my parents were in North Carolina for my cousin's wedding). We had Pioneer Woman's French Pastry Puffs, eggs, potatoes, (turkey) bacon, and fruit salad. So delicious!

After brunch and naptime (for both me AND Carter) we headed over to the garden to do the final setup. I laid out where I want everything and the plan is for Chris to go out there tomorrow and plant our stuff after his last exam. Chris' parents got me a boatload of herbs to put out there so our herb garden is going to be AWESOME. In addition to those, we have a ton of tomatoes (thanks, Monica!), summer squash, zucchini, japanese eggplant, hot peppers, and red and yellow sweet peppers. I can't wait to harvest all the goodness!

And now, to watch the season finale of The Amazing Race. Happy Mother's Day, y'all!

Oh, what a wonderful day that must have been. Wonderful pictures by the way - you and your baby look so cute! We visited a zoo just recently too and made pictures of the most wonderful baby orangutan :) Petra
