roses and pumpkins

My mom is here visiting and I am so glad. To see her familiar face, to have her visit our new home "out West" is very comforting. The girls are also so excited to see their "Nana". On Sunday we decided to take her to the Rose Garden. Even this late in the season, the roses are beautiful. We absolutely loved it, although it was a bit chilly as we strolled through the garden.

On Monday we went on a field trip (with the girls school) to the pumpkin patch. We had a fun time and my mom got us an apple pie from the farm store that was out there-after dinner last night we ate that pie right up .

Mom leaves on Friday, and I'll be sad when she goes back to the East Coast, but glad that we both have in our hearts the memories that we've made here in our new home.
Today we are going shopping, she's a shopper for sure-Happy Monday!


  1. Such beauty! I'm glad to hear that you're having a great time with your mama. Please give her our greetings. Lots of love to all of you!

  2. Tara, Mom says hello to you and the boys.
    I've been telling her how much I miss you all. I also showed her all the treats you sent me-and she told me that you are a wonderful friend, which I already know (:
