So, in honor of Mother's Day I thought I would post a fun photo of me and my mom. Due to my cursed scanner, my selection was limited to photos already on my hard drive and/or CD's. So, instead of a photo of just me and my mom, you get a bonus sister and sister-in-law in the deal!
This photo was taken WAY back on December 28, 2006 in the backseat of a NYC taxi cab. My mom, three sisters, sister-in-law, and family friend (who, in fact, thinks she is a sister) loaded up in my mom's mini-van and headed to the city for the day.
It is amazing how just one short day can feel like a real vacation when you are with your fun female relatives and sans children and responsibilities. Anyhoo, we took our time getting there--making a stop at Sonic, yummy cherry lime-aid! When we got into the city we went to Chinatown and bought fun "designer" purses. After that, we walked to Little Italy and had a fabulous dinner. Then we hopped in the cabs (as some in our groups had never ridden in them before) and raced to the theater where we saw Kristin Chenoweth starring in an adorable romantic show called The Apple Tree. We all loved the musical. We had a nice drive back to my mom's house. It was a great, fun day!
Although I am sure this would have been a fun trip with just my sisters, it was even better because my mom came with us. She is a really fun lady with a great sense of humor. And don't you just always feel a little more safe when you're with your mom?
I know I do. I still look to her for direction and advice. I am so glad to have such a fabulous mother.
