First Mommys Day

My first Mother's Day weekend was eventful.

We planned to go see my husbands mom and dad on Sunday so we went to do our Mother's Day on Friday and Saturday.

What better way to start the weekend off than by going to see a baseball game! We
went out to see our beloved Diamondbacks take on the Giants. No win, but it was a fun night. Little boy was so sweet and in such a good mood. They had a fireworks display after the game and Maddox was entranced. What is it about fireworks that takes you back to being a little kid... where sparklers were THE coolest thing in the world.

My google-boo of a husband found a Peach Festival and a place called Schnepf Farm over near Queen Creek.

They have carnival rides, a country store with jams and breads, they serve breakfast and lunch (although we didn't have either because the line was ridiculously long). And then of course they had peach orchards that you could pick your own peaches. We wanted to go for that reason. We got our 3 empty bags and went to pickin. It was so much fun!

We loaded up and got three bags filled to the brim. At the 2 dollars per bag, we couldn't wait to get all those juicy peaches! We went to pay and low and behold: it was not 2$ a bag, it was 2$ a pound. WHOOOPS. 23pounds and $47 later we left the peach farm. We just assumed that it was per bag. I guess because the orange orchards were just per bag.

After we left there with our 23 pounds of peaches, we went for Mexican food. I love me some Mexican food. Then came home and swam and just enjoyed time together.

Sunday, we woke up early and made the short journey up to Prescott to see my hubs mom and dad. I had whipped up some yummy chicken salad and a to-die-for strawberry spinach salad with homemade raspberry vinaigrette. We sat that out with some other fixings and had a nice lunch with them. After, we watched the dbax on tv and his mom and dad enjoyed Maddox.

All in all it was a super (and busy) weekend.

My mini bell is ringing...
