This has been such a fun week! My mom came to visit during her Spring Break. If you know my mom well, you know that it is always a party when she is around! She has such a “yellow” laid back, happy personality…she can make doing laundry fun! She is also a HUGE help to me when she comes to visit. She plays with my kids, cleans my house and is great at helping me mellow out. Those of you who know ME well know that I can be just a LITTLE bit of a perfectionist…just a little…once in awhile. :) My mom and I love hanging out together! Here’s what we’ve been up to…
Of course one of the main things my mom and I love to do together (especially in San Diego) is go shopping! We’ve done plenty of it this week… I love this picture because it is SO my mom. Stroller in hand…ready to hit the outlets! (Sorry dad and Kenny…looks like we’ll be eating Ramen Noodles for a week or two!)
The weather was so beautiful the whole week my mom was here. One day we took the girls to the beach…
She started getting a lot of sand on her and couldn’t get it off. This little one of mine HATES being dirty (wonder where she gets that from?!).
So much for our “perfect” beach day. I’m learning perfection doesn’t exist…ESPECIALLY if you have a one year old!
Addie calmed down as soon as she could see we were walking AWAY from the water and sand. She had bawled for over an hour and was done with the beach. I was just done with her! Definitely made for a beach day we won’t soon forget!
Sometimes my mom and I are bummed we don’t live closer to each other because we always have so much fun together. But if we did, (not only would we not get anything productive done!) we wouldn’t get to have a week like this one where we can spend so much quality time together. I wouldn’t trade that for anything! Love you mom…thanks for all of your help and for such a fun week!
