Mother's Day...THE PREQUEL

So...my sweet boy and our best friends did something incredible this weekend...we hid. It being Mother's Day and all, Amy and I didn't want to deal with the inevitable emotions we would face. So we packed up Friday and headed to Dodd City, Tx. population 419 (or 423 this weekend). Our friend Reagan (same one who got us in the Macy's Parade in November) has a log cabin in the woods that he offered to us. It was the most fun I have had in SO LONG!!! I expected a fun weekend, but this was just plain AWESOME!
There is way more to say that I can write here, so let me run through it in list form (ala Happy List):
Happies from the weekend:
1. Eating a fried food feast in Windom, Tx at the Feed Sack
2. 4-wheelers in an open meadow of wildflowers
3. Floating in a boat on a secluded pond
4. Campfires in the dead of night
5. climbing the side of a house
6. breakfast outside in the cool of the morning
7. kissing in the barn while the rain pours down
8. chocolate cobbler!!!
9. dragging a boat on an old mattress
10. buying a cowboy hat
11. watching arrested development all piled up on one huge bed
12. cows that follow you
13. and most importantly...KNOWING GOD WILL MAKE NEXT MOTHER'S DAY EVEN BETTER...no matter what that means for the 4 of us
Here are some pics from the trip. Enjoy!

I LOVE the pictures of you two and your hubbies close up and dark with the light background. Looks like you four had a blast! :)

Looks like you had fun. Very jealous! It can't seem to stop raining here so we can go outside and enjoy it. Of course, I can't complain since my yard is LOVING the nice drink. :)
