My mom has only had all her children (my two sisters and I) together twice in the last 18 years...ridiculous right?? Jenny is married to a navy man and they are all over-currently living in California, Susan lives in South Carolina and I live in Oregon. My mom lives in Washington state. See the dilemma?
So for Mothers Day this year, we planned the most spectacular surprise. We bought my mom a plane ticket to San Diego for a long relaxing weekend away. She was really excited to have a little vacation, and she so rarely gets to go anywhere (other than on fishing trips or on gambling trips). This was going to be a fun time exploring the city, just hanging with my sister and her family.
HOWEVER - we nearly killed her with love by surprising her by not just having me fly there-but Susan flew in from South Carolina! ALL of us together!!! We had a wonderful long weekend together and did a large variety of fun activities. My mom never stopped smiling.
I have about 400 photos to share later this weekend, but here's the video of when my mom discovered we were all going to join her on her weekend getaway:
The best Mothers Day ever? I think so....
