Long before we owned a home, I was telling Brian that I wanted a backyard full of trees. We decided that one day, when we had a backyard of our own, my Mother's Day gift would be a tree, every year. :) This Mother's Day, I finally got to cash in on that deal! We took the girls to the nursery, and you would have thought we were at the playground, they had so much fun. Their shoes came off too quickly and their feet were coated in dust and dirt. They ran through the trees, smelled the flowers, and took us down "secret pathways." We picked out the perfect tree and successfully packed it in the mini van for home! :)
