Mother's Day weekend at the coast

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day! The winner of the giveaway is... #12... Lauri! (Well, that's gonna save me some shipping!) Better luck next time, everyone! Erin, the name of the devotional is "Becoming a Woman Who Walks With God," by Cynthia Heald.

I was truly spoiled this weekend. My mom took the boys and me to the coast for a getaway. Her one spending spree of the year, and she wanted to share it with us! We stayed at her favorite inn overlooking the ocean, and took the boys to the beach on Saturday. Then my hubby and my dad drove over to bring us lunch and hang out on Sunday.


On Sunday, we headed to the beach again for breakfast at our favorite seaside cafe.


Back at the hotel, we set up camp between the pool and ocean for the perfect view and a game of Monopoly...





Even Daddy got to put his feet up for awhile...



Mom, you are the most thoughtful, generous, fun-loving person I know, and I am so blessed to have you for my mother!! Thank you for a fabulous weekend!

You are sooooo welcome sweet daughter of mine! I'm still enjoying myself, but getting to share my splurge of the year with all of you was simply the best!

I'm always so glad when I remember to check your blog. Looks like you had a great time! I stumbled upon an old post re: a thyroid condition and wondered if you have found many more holistically minded resources, if you don't mind me asking. I have been struggling with hypothyroidism for 5 years now and it's taking its toll. Hope I'm not being intrusive, I'm always looking for more/better resources. Blessings--

What a fun weekend! Beautiful beach, and that bacon sure looked tasty. And are those the Pipers I see in the last shot? LOL! I had forgotten all about that. It took your hubbie like 3 seconds to make the decision and place the order. Men!
