Cali Blog Tour - Mom's house

We left Mel's rental house in Pasadena at 5:30 a.m. on Saturday morning heading north to my Mom's house. Carrie will scoff when she reads this, remembering that I made her get up and leave so early because I thought it was a 6-hour drive to Mom's. {eh-hm...turns out to be under 4...we'll know next time...and besides, she's the one with the GPS in her iPhone!}

Kind of a wonky photo below, but it shows my mom's dining area, with her Team Teal banner still stretched across the opening here {Carrie and my sis, Valerie at the table...}

We got to see this little peach, Miss Presley who is 6-years old now and missing a few teeth.

We told Mom that we wanted Pinot Grigio, any brand would do. She bought this based on the cute label {haha, I was proud of her for that!}.

We sat outside and enjoyed each other's company while my nephew Stone and my step-dad Rod did some snail hunting. It's always so sweet to see these two together. {BTW, I have future plans for these photos...}

Got to spend some time with my awesome Aunt Sharon. I love this woman {and her hubby ain't so bad either}!

Enjoyed a little harmonica performance by Stone and his Papa.

Loved on my sweet girl, Carrie.

And my amazing mom, Marti.
It's always so nice to spend time at my mom's house with our family.

The next morning Carrie would be able to sleep until 7:30 a.m. before I forced her out of bed again for the next leg of our trip...
