First, my daughter Hannah, a bridesmaid for an upcoming November wedding, had to attend a shower the bridesmaids were throwing for the bride. Hannah, having a 5 month old baby really needed me to travel with her and help take care of our little Jack. He is such a sweetie and I really relish every moment of time I get to spend with him. It was a real pleasure. Also time with my Hannah is always cherished. We made some fun memories.
Secondly, I was so happy to have some time with my 87 year old mother. She is still a super active person and full of life. We enjoyed a great roast, mashed potatoes and broccoli and a home made peach cobbler when we arrived and home made biscuits before we left this morning!
My sister, Judy also had a milestone birthday, turning 70! Wow, and she looks absolutely amazing.
Before leaving, we attended their home church that is an amazing church with Pastor Anthony Mangun, and renowned singer wife, Micky Mangun. This church, being a part of my roots, always gives me a chance to see old friends and I get to come home to where so many of my spiritual roots are bound.
Then, home to my sweet hubby, that missed me (smiles) and my really sweet Abigail that is spending this weekend in our home with my awesome son, Aaron who lives with us. Needless to say, I am a very blessed person.
