Mother’s Day Week

Its been a wonderful week leading up to Mother’s Day and then Mother’s Day weekend…its been wonderful because I have spent it with a couple of my children!! 


To start the week off right Hillary and Quentin came to visit on Thursday…we had such a fun fun time.  Spent the weekend in Monterey at the aquarium, Q seemed very uncomfortable with most if not all of the sea creatures.

From the aquarium we went to the beach…windy, cool but sunny and the kids loved it!!
 
 
Saturday we went to San Francisco to a Giants game…AWESOME seats and perfect weather!
 
 
During the week we went to a park called Happy Hallow…Q wasn’t too happy most of the time as again, there were animals that he wasn’t really interested in getting to know better!!
 
 
 
Friday the doorbell rang and a HUGE surprise was smiling back at me….Haylie!!  What a wonderful wonderful surprise!!!  Don and Haylie planned this weeks ago and what a nice surprise for me!!!
 
We drove down to Santa Cruz on Saturday…sunny, cool and windy…but beautiful for sure!!!
Sunday was Mother’s Day Which means my missionary gets to call home!  Doesn’t he look great and he sounded just as great!  I miss him so much but I am so proud of him and he is loving being in Guatemala!!  Tomorrow are transfers, his companion is going home, so changes are in his future!
 
Mom, mother, mommy, grandma….those are my favorite words in the whole english language!!

About me in 2012

This year I am working on my photography skills, I am taking some photo class at Bellevue College with a friend.  I love that I am learning about my camera, but also love getting out there and taking weird pictures.  We are given a theme and our photos have to fit into that theme.  I love it.  Wish me luck and keep an eye to see if you can tell I’m getting better!!  My secret goal….publish a photo…I don’t know where, but somewhere.
