Happy Mother's Day!

What a wonderful Mother's Day weekend we had. Mark had Friday off so he and Jonathan had a fun day running around together. Jonathan is in love with "pup-pees" right now so they went to the pet store to see all the dogs. Mark said he loved them and went to each window to tell each of them hello. He is so loving to other things. Tells everything and everyone "hi" and "bye-bye." They also went and picked up my present.

Saturday, we went to Two Rivers Park for a picnic. We had not been there before, but it is a beautiful little peninsula of land that lies between the Little Maumelle and Arkansas Rivers. There are a ton of beautiful paths. We walked out to the little point and Jonathan enjoyed looking at the river. However, it was a SHARP drop down into the swiftly moving rivers, so we moved on. We found a beautiful field to have a picnic in. Jonathan ran around and found rocks on the paths and wild flowers. We got a ton of great pictures. I put the rest up on his picture website. See the link on the left of this page.

Sunday, we went to church. The preacher gave a really great sermon about the Sword of the Spirit. He has been going through The Armor of God in Ephesians 6:10-18. I have heard most of these things before, but our new preacher really has a way of making God's word come alive. We have really enjoyed hearing him preach. During the service, we had a special prayer time for all Moms, Moms-to-be, potential Moms to be, etc. It was very, very moving. I am so very blessed to have this beautiful little boy in my life. They gave out little devotionals to the Moms after the service which was a special treat. After church, we had lunch at El Chico's (20% discount with church program!). That was an experience. Jonathan is learning to eat with a spoon. He will not let anyone help him. Needless to say, Mexican rice, refried beans, and cut up soft tacos make QUITE a mess. But we had fun regardless.

What a blessing in my life these two are. Mark grilled Sunday night for our Mother's Day dinner. It was delicious. We sat outside to eat. Jonathan loves to eat outside because we can just pull his high chair right up to the patio table to eat. Jonathan got on our neighbor's trampoline after dinner. He can't jump yet, but he sure did try. It was truly a wonderful weekend. God is good.
Oh, I forgot about the present. The best part was the card that Jonathan picked out. It is a music card that plays Tina Turner's "Simply the Best." How funny is that. Jonathan had taken great care to color the card for me. Plus they had gotten me a Nintendo DS. It is a hand-held video game unit. I know it sounds crazy, but I love this game 'Brain Age' that you can get for it. I have been talking about it for a while, but would have never bought it for myself. Always thought it would be great for our loooonnnnnggg car rides. I have had a good time playing with it. Mark has too!
I hope that each of you had a great Mother's Day as well!
