Mom time

My mom flew out here for a visit on New Year's Day and it was SO wonderful to have her here. I miss her tons!
We knew it was going to rain, so we took advantage of the 2 days of decent weather we had before it started to get wet and we went to the beach and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was a great beach day (we still wore our pants and fleece coats, but it was pretty) and Carson had a blast in the sand and water, it just makes me so happy that we get to live here and go to the beach in January?!!! Cool. And then the rain set in on our way home from the aquarium and it rained till she left. So we had a lot of good hanging-out-at-home time.
I didn't take very many pictures, so mom you're gonna have to send me some! :-) Thanks for all your help around here, the kids had a great time with you and can't wait till the next time we get to be together.

That picture of Livi and your mom is too sweet! I just want to smother Livi with kisses, she's so cute. Emma ooooh-ed and awww-ed over Carson's colorful umbrella! She's dying for some rain so she can use hers!

Your mom seems like such a fun grandma... those are great pictures with your kids and her! We love to get out in the rain and splash in the puddles... I guess that is we Californians do because it doesn't snow in our neck of the woods:)
