Happy Mother's Day!

A photo of Mom and me
ten years ago on Mother's Day. 
 She is dearly missed.  

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!  I'm back at my computer and have a few photos to share.  It has been a great week with my husband on vacation.  We've done some visiting, shopping, and birding.  

We had a great day visiting with my son after his work day this past week.  The weather was wonderful his way...sunny in the 70's.  We've had quite a bit of rain and chilly temps.  But, it's warming up in our area to the 70's this week.  

My son has worked on the computer and has it running more smoothly.  He came up last night and finished working on it.  Today, we went to lunch and had a delicious meal at our favorite restaurant.  

As, if the day couldn't get any better, my husband and I went to Magee Marsh for birding.  It was the final day to celebrate the migration of the warblers that migrate to this area every year.  We are blessed with a couple of eagle nests.  It is so relaxing and fun to see the lovely birds.  People from all over the country come to view the birds and take lots of photos.  Everyone is so helpful to each other, too.  They point and show one another where they can spot and take the perfect photo of the lovely birds!  We even viewed some turtles and a frog enjoying the sun.  I hope you enjoy the photos.  And, here they are...

Well, that's all I have for now.  Thanks so much
for taking the time to view my photos!  I hope you
enjoyed seeing them!  Take care and have 
a wonderful week!



  1. Omgosh, how fabulous!! I LOVE seeing your gorgeous bird photos! So stunning to see all of them.... especially those eagles! Wow! So glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day, my friend!

  2. Wonderful photos and a great way to spend a day! Happy Mother's Day!

  3. All lovely photos, I am sure that you miss your mom. Your son is a handsome young man Maria. Love all the outdoor nature photos too!

  4. Oh what a joy to see your photos!! I always love to see them and what a handsome son you have!! I may be 65 but I can still swoon Lol!

  5. So sorry I'm late getting to your blog, Maria. Sounds like a fabulous Mother's Day! Your son is a cutie & how sweet he got the computer working for you. The pictures are just amazing & hubby enjoyed them, too! He's the eagle nut (tons of eagle stuff in our house) so really enjoyed that one. My favorite bird as a kid was the Baltimore Oriole even though we don't have them. Thinking that might be the orangy one. Sending hugs, Greta

  6. Forgot to say--such a wonderful picture with your mom. Boy is it hard not having them with us anymore.
