A Fun Little Mother's Day Adventure.....

This post is a little overdue!  

2 weeks ago my Daughter and my Mother came to town!  We got to spend some quality Mother/Daughter/Mother/Daughter/Nana/Grand Daughter time together, which doesn't happen often enough!  It was such a beautiful weekend, weather-wise and memory-wise!  We were celebrating Mother's Day AND my Mother's 83rd Birthday, which fell on the very same day this year--love when that happens!  I sent out a card telling her to pack her bags as Lori and I were kidnapping her.  We told 'nana', as she is known in these parts, that it was an all 'YOU DAY'......whatever she wanted to do we would do.  Little did we know she would leave us both exhausted--but in a good way! 

We started the day heading out to Provincetown, aka P'Town.  A glorious little artsy community, where local characters add so much flavor to the surroundings.  The scenic route out is filled with water views in almost every direction, sand, sea and pines.  Just a lovely way to get where you are going.  "A man may stand there and put all America behind him."   Henry David Thoreau

We drove from one end of the Cape to the other.....literally, P'Town to Sandwich!  A good time was had by all.  We dined, we drank, we laughed.  To be able to celebrate this woman, this wonderful, wonderful woman is a blessing in my life.  And to be able to share the entire day with my own Daughter is another blessing.  I am the luckiest gal around.....and thankfully I know it!

My Mom was such a good sport.  While eating lunch in P'Town she put on her birthday tiara, sash, pin and wand.  I warned her she may just run into someone else dressed just like her, trust me there are alot of colorful characters in P'Town.  The restaurant was so enchanted too that they took her photo and posted her on their Face Book page.  A sweet woman having lunch with a friend stopped by and told me how lucky I was to have such a wonderful Mom and to be able to spend time with her.  Believe me, I KNOW!!!!

My 2 VERY Favorite Girls In The Whole Wide World And Beyond!

My Mother and Daughter are 2 peas in a pod.  Lori often stops in to chat with 'wine' with Nana.  They enjoy outings to my Mom's most favorite past time, watching the Boston Red Sox.  As a matter of fact, we gave her 2 tickets to the Mother's Day Game as part as her gift.  She and Lori had a 'wicked good time'.  :)
Thanks for stopping by.  And thank you all who leave comments, they are a lot of FUN to read.....I appreciate it!
