My First Mommy's Day!

 I know I say this a lot, but my boys really spoiled me this weekend.  I didn't just get a day of Mommy spoiling, I got a 3 day weekend. Thank you Army for giving my husband Monday off! And surprisingly, all Bobby's yahoo's were good so he didn't get called in or have to spend hours on the phone!

We woke up very early Saturday, the story gets better I promise, to drop my Jeep off to get her oil changed.  Then Bobby watched Jack while I went out for a run. I know still sounds not so fun.  Since I want to run a half marathon next March, I need to start running more!  Bobby and I are also doing an adventure race June 5th. Ok ok back to my weekend.  After we picked my Jeep up, we headed our to get some family pictures taken.  The location the photographer chose was beautiful.  There is an old horse barn on the property and since I am crazy about horses, I had her take a few pics of us in front of it.  I hope they turn out, they are supposed to be my favorites!  Saturday night we went to have dinner with an alumni of the same college Bobby went to.  They live on a beautiful horse farm with 15 horses, goats, donkeys, cats, dogs, and birds.  I was in heaven.  I told Bobby he could come pick me up in a few weeks.  They took us to this restaurant deep in the woods.  So deep that our GPS didn't know the address when we tried to put it in, and when we got there this is what it read...

At least we were following them...

Sunday morning my boys woke me up with flowers.  Bobby said he showed Jack three different bunches and the ones that he smiled at the most, he bought.  So my little 5 month old baby picked out my first mother's day flowers. ♥   That morning we went down to Forsyth Park to run around the perimeter of the park. Hey, just cause it's mother's day, doesn't mean I can't run... We took the dogs and they were so happy to get out of the house.  We have been so busy lately, their walks get pushed aside.  Then we walked down to J. Christophers for brunch.  We love to sit outside since the dogs can sit with us and they even get served "puppy chow."  I had the spinach and bacon skillet.  It was so yummy.  Roasted potatoes, sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, spinach, bacon, and two sunny side up eggs!  Good thing we ran!  The walk back to the car really did a number on Jack...

Then on Monday, lucky me still celebrating! Bobby, Jack and I went to pick strawberries.  We also saw my midwife who delivered Jack!  She told us she is pregnant!  I would do anything to have her deliver our next baby.  Maybe Bobby will make the big bucks in his next job and we can fly her to our castle mansion.  Yeah I know a castle is too over the top.  Anyway, we only picked a few strawberries...

my boys.

me picking.

strawberry plants are so cute.

one of these full is 5 lbs.  so I needed two.

7 lbs of strawberries.

I'm quite lucky Bobby didn't beat me when I picked 7lbs of strawberries.  See we are going to NY in two days and strawberries don't keep real well.  Now we could have eaten all 7lbs, they are that good, but instead I froze some and made strawberry jam sauce.

Has anyone ever made jam?  I don't know what I did wrong.  It's not jammy.  It's sauce.  I followed this recipe.  I thought it was all going good.

I even read how to can things, and sterilized, and sealed the jars right. I think, they were stuck pretty good.  I got four pretty little jars of jam, I thought.

one is in the fridge.

But when I made a PB&J for breakfast, it was strawberry sauce.  Oops.  I don't know what happened...
