Sunday, May 10

Hello All!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all mother's out there today - hope you had as nice a day as I had :-) Dustin and Brenna gave me a very nice necklace that we got in France yesterday.
We drove to the lake at the top of the hill today - very nice to walk around it :-) The path was closed so we had to take a hike up to a service road (not good in the dress shoes I wore today, but at least no one slipped, tripped, or fell - o.k. - everyone was the most worried about me falling...hmmm). We found some cute souveniors for mom, and had fun looking at the stuff in the shop. We did a driving tour of Baden-Baden and Bühl (and looked at where our landlord has his vineyard - very nice and very large!). Our landlord was having a birthday celebration today, so we all went down to toast him (Brenna accidently got a big flower "bouquet" that she pulled off there plant - oops!). We will be trying a couple of the specialty wines we purchased (got to see what mom should take back home to dad!)
We continued our search for snails (not so much slugs) in our area - I found the biggest one so far - hope you enjoy the picture! Also, had to get a picture of Justice enjoying the search! I love
all the greenery here (look at all those ferns and moss) and the flowers - this one was from one of my favorite gardens in the area.
Well, that is it for today - I'm bushed from all our exercise this weekend!
Take Care!

You guys look like you had a great day! Justice looks sooooooooo happy to be out and about. I cannot believe how big that snail is. I think the photo is great! I, again, am soooo jealous! Enjoy your time with mom, I know that you will! Looks like Brenna doesn't want to let her go!
