A few years ago, mom and I started a tradition of going out on the
Saturday of Mother's day weekend to get flowers for our homes,
and just hang out together.
I always have mom pick one out from me.
She picked out a beautiful hanging basket!
This is our 2nd time going to Donahue's in Fairbault, MN
I love, love love this place!
If you've never been to Donahue's...it's worth the trip over, the selection is amazing
and the prices beat any of the nursery's in Rochester (even with a coupon)
The back of my van full of flowers.... there's more up front :)
It was too early for lunch so we swung into GOP Lutheran church (just outside of Kenyon)
My mom has a relative buried there.
A beautiful little church (with a steeple of course)
I love the old churches with their own cemeteries.
This little bench was tucked away at the edge of the cemetery almost hidden in the tall grass.
I wonder how many have sat on that bench, remembering their loved ones?
Since we were passing through Kenyon we stopped at the nursing home
to give a quick visit to my mom's cousin.
She was glad to see us, It was nice to meet her :)
Then it was on to Kasson, were we had lunch at Daniels Resturaunt
It was scrumptious!
It was a beautiful day to spend with my mom
Thanks for hanging out with me mom.... I'm pretty lucky to have you!
