Also any recommendations of things I must see around Barcelona in case I'm stuck with free time and my mom isn't too busy dragging us around to shop.

Also any tips on the lenses I should bring.

The monastery and mountain of Montserrat is very nice to spend a day. You can reach it with the FGC train to Monistrol de Montserrat (I believe they have combo tickets to go up to the monastery with the cremallera) or a bus from Barcelona. The mountain has very nice trails with beautiful views, you can make a round trip to the highest point in about 3-4 hours and the trails are quite level except if you walk the stairs up directly from the monastery (it is better to take the second cremallera up, walk from there and descend by those stairs - people who have difficulty walking can go down the way they came).

If you like to see very far (e.g. the Pyrenees), plan for visiting the day after a cold front (often with thunderstorms) passes.

You can find some pictures I took there on my site.
