A Post for My Mother

My mother as any other mother in the world wants to know how her kids live, what they do, and she wants to be part of our life on a daily basis. Because she is six thousand miles away and lives on another continent she is happy for every bit of news from us. She likes to say that photos of our everyday life shrink the distance and she feels as she is here with us.  So this post is my Mother's Day gift for my Mother. We love your Mom! :)

Yesterday we went to a place called Wild Things Farm to pick some strawberries.

It was a lovely day to be outside. 

We picked a few buckets of strawberries and a weekly dose of vitamin D.

Then we walked around the farm, didn't take the fun ride though. 

Happy harvest... Can you imagine pies, jams, lemonades, and all other wild things that can be done with all this strawberries?!

Back at home I made a cheesecake. I've been working on the recipe for a week, and this one came out just right for our tastes. 

With it we all had a delicious tea time.

I love having tea time with my Mother... And I wish to have one sometime soon... 

Happy Mother's Day!

See you,

P.S. It looks like we will be moving back to Washington State in July. And we also have two graduations: our teenager is graduating from high school in May, and my husband is graduating from the residency in June. With all that said, my posts will be sporadic for the time being, until we move and settle somewhere. I also may not be visiting your lovely blogs as often as I'd like to.  But I think of you all often.
