A special visitor

22 November 2010

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend. We sure did!

My wonderful mum came to visit us for a long weekend. I kept it a secret from the kids and the looks on their faces when they first saw her was complete and utter shock lol

While Brock was at school on Friday, Mum, Jack and I spent the day in town shopping for Christmas presents, lunching and just being together. I miss being able to do that sort of stuff with Mum so it was great to have a day to ourselves.

After we picked Brock up from school, we stopped by the local beach on the way home. It was low tide, which is the best time to go for a stroll.

We all had a great time. The kids played in the water. They both got so wet they had to take off their shorts in the end lol I had a great time photographing the beach and Mum, well I think she was just happy to be spending time with the boys :)

By Sunday the weekend was over and the boys and I took Mum back to the airport. I hate goodbyes, especially when it comes to my mum. I cried, then she cried, then I cried again. When we got back in the car to head home, I cried again and my very wise seven year old little boy said to me, “It’s ok Mummy, sometimes goodbyes are very sad”. Bless his cotton socks, he’s a clever little cookie.

After our long drive home, a quick bite to eat and a nice warm shower, the kids were in bed and Hubby and I weren’t far behind. It was a busy, but wonderful weekend.

Today I’m playing Week-A-Boo with Claire and Point & Shoot with Chantelle. How was your weekend? Why not come and play along too?

  1. Aw, that's so special that your mum came for the weekend. I know how you feel, mine lives away too and I'm always teary when she goes. Your 7 year old sounds adorable!

  2. Oh how special to have your mum for the weekend! What a special few days you had! The beach looks beautiful!

  3. Aww Emma I almost teared up just thinking about you & your mum getting emotional on her departure :(
    I love your piccies! And your 7 yr old is so so sweet! Wise little soul :)
    Have a lovely week Emma :)

  4. I know how you feel, my mum lives interstate too and I love it when she comes to spend some time with the kids, but I hate saying goodbye. I love that pic of your boys standing in the water. If they're anything like my kids it's not easy getting good shots of more than one child in the same frame!
