Me and Mom

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

It's already 2pm. I'm so late joining in with Photostory Friday this week! I figure better late than never, though.


Here's the photo:

Me and my mom


And the photostory is: My mom and I haven't had much of a chance to take trips together, just us. Last winter, though, we grabbed a weekend and travelled to Ontario to scope out a place for Hubby, the kids and I to rent when we moved to our new town. Mom and I had a great time together and, despite her never-ending reluctance to have her picture taken, I managed to snap this shot of the two of us. We look happy, don't we? We were happy and enjoying each other's company. The trip was so successful that we've promised to do it again sometime when we don't have to spend so much time apartment hunting.

Nice shot and nice story. It is good to hang with your mom. I know I love doing it when I can!

Cecily R said...

That shot of the two of you is PERFECT!! Please tell me you're going to be framing it!!!

You make me want to plan a trip with my mom. We have a great relationship, and even though we live about 20 minutes away and talk all the time, it would be great to hang with her for a longer stretch of time. :)

That is wonderful that you are close with your mom. I lost my mom (my best friend) 3 years ago and I long to be able to do things like this with her!!

That's lovely. I always get a bit stressed at the thought of spending a lot of time with mum. It always works out well though. I've got a sneaky feeling that she cuts me a lot of slack because she loves me!

Deb said...

glad you could make it!

it is a nice shot of the two of you... i am afraid my mom and i would spend the trip bickering.

Jennifer said...
