Mom's visit

My mom visited for my 30th Birthday. That was the greatest birthday gift of all. She came in on Friday and stayed through The Redeye on Tuesday night. A nice long-feeling trip. She baked me a cake, she and Casey prepared me a wonderful Birthday Brunch. She played with the boys. We had a massively successful shopping trip to San Francisco. We had many hours of talking. It was awesome.

I just really love having her around. We all did.

This week has been hard. I think partially a let down of her being gone. I miss her.

This is Wesley saying "I'm a dancing dragon" whilst leaping up and down. We happened upon Chinese New Year's celebrations at Union Square when we were shopping for my birthday clothes (sooo nice to have a real wardrobe). He and Casey spent a lot of time watching the festivities (which gave my mom and I plenty of time to shop). He loved the dragons.

Grandma did so much good truck playing. Sabien just loved her and had so many smiles for her.

The trip was a last minute treat. We had extra flight vouchers from our trip last spring (we delayed two days and "took deals" = two days x two people = four vouchers for $400-$500 each = a family trip to Hawaii and Mom here for my big 3-0).
