My mom flew in from Virginia Friday morning. I let Madison stay home from school and we arrived at 8:30 to the airport to get my mom. After we picked her up we headed to Target, then Best Buy, and then back to my house to drop off our Target stuff and my mom's luggage. We headed to Papa Gino's for a pizza and salad lunch. Then I took my mom to a local gift shop/boutique and then to Michaels before we headed home to relax. That evening we went out for Mexican at El Parque and then I went to bed early because I had a horrible headache.
Saturday morning we woke up early to head to Massachusetts to meet up with two of my mom's sisters. We then rode in to Boston with them for my cousin Lisa's bridal shower. She had a beautiful brunch bridal shower at a restaurant along the water in Boston's North End.
Here are some photos Madison took yesterday at the shower-
The favors were amazing. They were wedding dress cookies with the bride's name on them from a Vermont bakery called a Dozen Eggs Bake Shoppe. I was so surprised to see my aunt had used them. We had considered using them for our wedding...and even ordered samples, but out baker convinced us to go with her candy cupcake toppers (which ended up being horrible) instead.
It ended up being a fun, yet long day in Massachusetts.
Sunday afternoon we had reservations to celebrate Madison's 12th birthday at the Melting Pot in downtown Providence. Then we did a little shopping at the Providence Place Mall before bringing my mom to the airport.
We always love when she visits and had such a wonderful time. Now we are sitting in the living room watching a movie with the fire going (for the first time).
