The long weekend...loved it!

One of the best long weekends I have had in a long time because I got to spend time as a family (just Mateo, my husband and I). Usually we get so caught up in doing things with extended family, which we love to do, that we don't get to appreciate just our little family and the home that we have made.
I got to fall in love with the area again, and it really made me realize why I live here. As we went on a miniature hike with Mateo, (love the backpack bag), cut our grass (it took two days, we have a big backyard), and we started our vegetable garden. More importantly we got to enjoy some firsts with Mateo, he finally made the connection of grabbing food and putting it in his mouth on his own, and he can pull himself up to his knees.
The stress of making sure I have income after maternity leave  (which is in just over a month), was gone for this weekend because I had the sun shining and got to spend it with two of my favourite guys, my son and my husband. I couldn't of asked for more, oh wait I guess making a my endeavors pay off because the world we live in requires money would of been nice....I guess for this weekend I will just think about the amazing time I had and I hope mothers everywhere got to experience some great moments with their families too.
