Taking A Timeout Thursday {No.30}

I hope everyone had a beautiful and relaxing Mother’s Day!  I have a new laptop thanks to my hubby and I am loving it!  My old laptop died the day after we bought this one and I wasn’t able to get all my files transferred over so I’m hoping to get that taken care of soon.  Kind of scary :(  

We have been enjoying our backyard and all the wonderful things happening in our garden.  Each morning the boys and I go out and pick some fresh strawberries, check on the progress of our seedlings and enjoy the beautiful weather.  This morning the boys each picked a cherry to eat and assured me they were delicious even though I know they need at least another week or two.  Here are some pictures I took this morning of our garden:

You can see the cherries are turning red (which of course means we now have bird friends), the hydrangea is getting a little color, the tomatoes and plums are growing, and we are just enjoying it all!  I hope that each of you are taking some time out of your busy schedules to just stop and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us all.
