My Mom's 88th Birthday

My Mom celebrated her 88th Birthday on June 22nd, and we all went up to Vermont to be with her. 

My Mom lives in South Burlington, Vermont.  So, it is always lovely to take the trip to visit.

My Mom really enjoyed seeing the boys.

 My sister, Susan really made a hit with Brayden.  Susan used to live in Vermont, she was the first one to move there back in the 80's.  We used to cross country ski in Stowe together.

 So, I said "smile", and everyone looked a different way.  No one ever listens to me...but I love how animated everyone looks.
Ashley, Ricky and the boys stayed in Stowe, Vermont.  Another gorgeous place to visit.

My Mom had so much fun.
I love it when we make memories.  I will be returning to Boston late July to host Sarah's bridal shower.  My Mom will join us down in Massachusetts.  Summer daydreams and family fun is what summer is all about.
