mother’s day.

my mom came to town just before mother’s day, it’s been a full ten days of celebrating…

with age my mom has needed help up and down stairs lately – i love hearing my kids argue over, i’m holding grandma’s hand! no! i’m helping her! — the picture above was taken sunday on the way out the door for church. sela had been waiting and waiting on the porch to help grandma.

husband has been traveling, and wasn’t here on mother’s day. i think he overdoes himself when he misses holidays like this because he feels guilty for being away from home. this year was no different. he over-out-did himself! a little guilt never hurt a good man! ::winks:: my older two girls had been very sneaky & extra giggly all morning. i thought they were just planning little gifts or something, but oh no – after church a Limosouine appeared in our driveway and the mother’s day adventure began! It was so exciting!

sela and kiana had made us “3-way tickets” which meant to say, “3-stops ticket” ha!

our first stop was here. i can’t stop thinking about how delicious and cozy our meal was – the best part were my glowing kiddos who were so excited to be spoiling me! then we were supposed to do this but it was already closed for the day so we jumped ahead to our third activity – a comfy driving tour of the city for grandma. it was so cute. i was also given homemade cards and presents – those little jewels are always my favorite.

my mom goes home tomorrow – and right now she’s on the sofa with her frappuccino half-way through season 2 of Downton Abby. she’s a happy lady. may we all grow old and be surrounded by people to hold our hands when needed… xoxo.

  1. fun, fun, even without the supposed to be guided tour of Boston’s historical sites as given by the kiddos. 🙂

  2. Hi Jane,
    I found your blog through Boston Mamas the other day and have loved reading it! I also live in the Boston area but grew up in Bozeman MT so I really love seeing the mountains in some of your pictures from UT. My heart will always be out west but Massachusetts is my home now. I hope you and your family are enjoying your time back here. I look forward to reading about your new adventures!

  3. I hope your mom had a great time visiting! It sounds like the kids were really happy to see her 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day to you both!
