'twas a happy Mother's day


Actually it was a happy Mother's day weekend, as I spent it at the coast with some of my very favorite mothers!

We were at our church's annual ladies retreat and our conference center sat right on the beach. In between sessions and dining and shopping we spent plenty of time down there (I even got up at 7 am Saturday morning for an hour long walk/pretend-run. This was unprecedented behavior, people!)

 My roomies (minus friend Andrea who was still out shopping): Diana, Kelly, myself, Tricia, Sairaina, & Jana.

This was one FUN group of ladies!
 My sister Kelly and I.

 My two sisters-in-law Cara and Tricia.

Kelly and I with Mum (who leaves in one month for her 3-month-long hike of the Pacific Crest Trail... waaaaaah!)

Tricia, Cara and I with my mother-in-law, Teri (Cara's mom).

Pretty awesome that I got to be with so many of the wonderful ladies in my family, huh?

Like I said, I had a GREAT time.

Then I came home to a clean house and a very-happy-to-see-me family who presented me with this:
And my Mother's Day was complete.

I heart my family.


  1. Great pictures, you are always so cute! I am glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day and the lists...priceless! :)


  2. Looks like you had a wonderful day. That list at the bottom is super cute.

  3. That note at the end made me a little teary! What a sweet family you have!

  4. Oh, what a sweet Mother's Day note! I love seeing your mom and siblings. :)
