A Mother's Day Gift...

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

We have had an awesome Graduation/Mother's Day celebration this weekend.  Yesterday, we drove up to Brownwood, Texas to celebrate my nephew, Tucker's graduation.  Next, we drove from Brownwood to San Antonio to celebrate my other nephew, Gibson's graduation from UTSA. 

Mom, Cesar and I explored San Antonio last night and had a wonderful wonderful dinner on the Riverwalk.  Of course my phone had died and the charger I brought along to charge it never charged...so no pictures! 

This morning we are having some breakfast and off to explore a bit more before heading to the graduation.

I had a couple of nights to make a little something for Mom before we left.  Still not where it needs to be, but it's made from love right?

Happy Mother's Day!  Have an AWESOME week!
