Happy Birthday Mom! This photo brings back wonderful memories of an unexpected vacation. This photo was taken on a family vacation that included my mom, older brother and younger sister. It was the summer and we went to Sunriver, Oregon. The memories that this photo brings back include: warm sunny weather, laughter, the house with the spiral staircase, swimming, board games, horse back riding, bike rides and an overall great time. One of my favorite vacations as a teen.
I love the smile on my mom’s face. She is happy and enjoying the time away from home. She is enjoying being a mom and a kid. As a parent sometimes we forget to just be in the moment and enjoy life. Thank you mom, for enjoying this vacation with just us kids (who had a history of beating each other up – a lot). Thank you for being healthy and active and a present part of your grand-children’s lives. Thank you for being supportive and interested in all of your kid’s lives and for being a wonderful mom.
Wishing you a memorable birthday and many more to come. I love you.
