My Mother comes to visit a few times every year, however, this year she hasn't come to California at all... until now! And she stayed for over a month!!!
We had two baby showers to attend, lots of shopping and catching up to do right out of the gate!
That's in addition to some work on my part, in fact, Mom tagged along on a photoshoot I did and I was able to take a few shots of her at one of her favorite places in the world: the beach.
Tristen has been working on earning a laptop to use for school since he'll be a BIG SIXTH GRADER and his homework will be all digital. Little does he know, he accomplished that mission!
Thankfully I had my tripod with me, it's the only way we could get photo together as a group.
The Navy was on the beach and the boys had a good time playing around on the ships & tanks.
Now back to the beach and to walk the peir.
While at the beach the boys found tons of shells and stuff but this one was the best of all!
A live clam!
I wouldn't let them keep it though, it would kill Garrett when it died!
He couldn't let it go so I asked Tristen to do it.
While walking the peir the boys saw some surfers catching the waves; it was cool.
They saw this bird with a red beak and it seemed to be following us!
Some other random things we did together:
Showing Nana how much we love Kayser...
and how much he loves us!
My nieces are huge Twilight fans and have wanted me to make shirts or something for them for ever! So Mom helped with the sewing and I designed these dresses.
Lillian is a Team Edward
and Liberty is a Team Jacob
Mom's a Team Jacob too.
And then Mom & Izzie had to leave.
So much happened during this visit, I'm SURE I left stuff out, but I've been working on this post ALL DAY and I'm calling it done.
