We took a last minute weekend getaway to Santa Barbara. We had a college graduation, family visit, and mother's day. It was a good time, minus the toddler meltdowns (x 2). I almost cried a few times. But there were lots of laughs too. My camera barely made it out of it's case, but here are a few shots.
Happy graduation Bradley! No picture for this, but we are so, so proud of you. You've done an incredible job staying focused and you've accomplished so much. Above all, you are just a good guy. You have the best heart and you treat people well. It was two years ago that you stayed the summer with us. Now you're all grown up, educated and graduated. Well done.
We brought our beach cruisers and trailer and rode from our hotel to the harbor and on the pier. Nice picture of Mike's back. Imagine two wide eyed kiddos in the trailer.
When we got home I got the Mother's Day gift I asked Mike for...an hour and a half nap. SO NICE! But before I went to sleep, one of my big kids surprised me. I came home to a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a super sweet card, and these concert tickets!!!
And to my mother and mother in law~You have each blessed me so much this past year. The endless love you both show Maxwell and Ella fills my cup over and over when I'm feeling tired. You each spoil me in your own ways and I appreciate every word of encouragement and extra time you go our of your way to help us. Happy Mother's Day Mom. Happy Mother's Day Judie. I LOVE you both.
