Aminals...

The exotic animal drive-thru park that we went to on Saturday was so much fun. Casey and I have been several times before, but Jason had never been before this weekend.

Yesterday, we went to church and then had lunch with Jason's parents. Casey and I spent the rest of the day catching up on DVRed shows, playing games, and watching old episodes of our favorite shows on hulu.com. It was a really good Mother's Day. We were supposed to go to my sister's house last night, but I wasn't feeling well. I haven't been sleeping well, and I have a lot of swelling in my feet and ankles, so I have to go get blood work tomorrow to check out my kidney function.

I just want to say what a wonderful Mom I have. She's not only given me life 3 times, but is always there for me, is very loving and patient, and puts her children and grandchildren first. I love her so much and am so proud to call her my mom!

I am so proud to be Casey's mom too! Instead of giving me a gift this year, she gave all of the money she had saved up to help a friend of ours pay his medical bills. I was so proud of her for doing that. :) She drew me this beautiful picture of a butterfly and a flower, and waited on me all day yesterday. It was awesome!!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Here are some pics from Saturday...

Thank you for the sweet comment you left on my blog. I think you are an amazing mom....Casey is so lucky to have you for her mom!! I am glad you had a great Mother's Day!! Your mom sounds pretty awesome herself!!

We have been to one of those animal safari's where you drive through. We went a few years ago while we were camping in Georgia. It was so much fun!! Loved it! I would love to take Sawyer back now. He was a baby when we went on that trip and we left him at my mom's house. He would really love it now though!! Great pictures!!
