City Momma came to visit from Chicago. We get visits once a year which are a very very welcome visit. I truly gained an extra Mom...but I'm the kid with lots of Moms and Aunties (blood aunties and otherwise) and cool GodMothers...
I went to pick up City Momma and get her squared away with her rental car. City Momma is always on the move and likes her own transportation.
Right after we got back to our house Mr. Man arrived:
We found a REAL 100% pineapple juice - product of the Philippines and no high fructose just a bit of lemon juice as a preservative.
I love going to market with Momma but this last trip even stumped me - I saw some produce I had no IDEA what it was - HA! Momma told me she loves watching chopped coz she thinks I could really win that show in a blink - coz I can throw stuff together well! What a compliment - coz market basket is a tough challenge.
After a few days we were off to San Diego to visit City Momma's oldest brother - Uncle RC - retired marine and former drill sergeant and his wife of 50 years Auntie Eiko. I love them both. I love their stories and their company.
I offered to sit in the back so they could catch up with each other. Plus I like being in the back seat occasionally coz it allows you to sleep and catch the view.
Then we crossed the street past the Childrens Museum and went to SeaPort Village. We even saw the new statue coming into harbor of the soldier kissing the lady (wwII image)...
Nonetheless...it was a great weekend.
We did a few other things down there that we didn't get photos of. We also went back inland to have dinner with Auntie and Uncle and relax at the hotel...
These weird Euro folks kept looking at us and smiling - they were looking at Momma like she was a Thanksgiving turkey - we were happy when the stores finally opened at 10am.
These jeggings make me laugh! I forgot to take a pic of the little hoody that goes with it too coz my brother always wears grey hoodies.
My sister in law has already dubbed this the "going home from the hospital outfit" Hilarious!
She loves my stirfry dishes.
Now I'm just showing off huh?
Momma always has such a buying experience here coz prices are so cheap...she scored a lot of cooking goodies and spices and such. The best part is it all fit in her baggage and there was no extra charge - actually she could have still packed 15 lbs in there LOL.
I love that she can come here and relax and not even cook if she doesn't want to.
It was sad to see Momma leave...the house felt quiet.
