Mom's visit Part 1

Going back to trying to catch up on the haps in the household... My mom came out to visit from August 5th through August 12th. We had a great visit and a lot of fun. Obviously, I don't get a chance to see her nearly as much as I'd like so every time I do see my mom it's really special.

On her first day here we headed out to go antique shopping. Brianna, Jen, and my mom all had a really good time. For me it was looking at a bunch of old stuff but I was glad to be doing it with my mom.

On Monday we went to Canon Beach, which is the *coolest* beach in Oregon - it's not too touristy for a beach town, but still pretty high on the cheez factor. Even though it was a gray day (like the majority of days on the Oregon coast) we had a lot of fun.

After we ate a late lunch we all got new sunglasses:

We went to the beach next. I had a chance to sit and talk with my mom, play with Brianna by the ocean and attempt, unsuccessfully, to fly a kite. Brianna and Jen made a little beach town which came out really cute:

I had fun to. Loved going to see the Portland Rose garden. I have showed the lovely scrapbook to everyone. Even the Gals in my T.O.P.S. group.

Still can't figure out how to transfer a book on tape to my IPod. But Circuit City sells them here and I am sure someone will be able to help me. It's tough be old in a tech world. Lots of new things to learn. Miss you guys loved the peace and quiet. I think I am rambling Love MiMi
