Mom's Weekend {Mother's Day Style}

Okay, so this is no Mom's weekend...not yet anyway...
This was Mother's Day weekend.
But come 2031, I fully expect to celebrate Mothers day at Mom's weekend In Pullman.
No exceptions Reagan.
For now, I have no cause to complain. This was a pretty damn good weekend.
Cody and I drove to Roslyn Washington where we met my Mom and her BF, my Nana and Papa, Auntie Talyn and Uncle Rick. We rented a BEE-A-U-TIFUL cabin and spent the weekend laughing, drinking and catching up with each other. Of course Reagan was the star of the show, can't no one get enough of a chubby baby.
We arrived Friday evening, Reagan loved exploring her new diggs for the weekend - getting into every drawer, nook, and crany.
Lucky for us the place we rented was VERY kid friendly- more baby proofed than our own home to be honest. We found a plethora of toys in one of the closets, I was even guilty of thinking "I wonder if they'd miss this" I didn't clepto any of the toys, as tempting as it may have been.
Saturday morning Cody, Reagan and I took as leisurely jog through the jaw dropping 'cabin community'. The cabins were nothing less than spendy vacation homes, beautiful homes with lush yards and gardens, large window fronts, and the perfect high peaked roofs. Gorg. I asked Cody numerous times when we would be moving in. Anyway, we took a jog- the whole time I had mimosa's on my mind, knowing they would be waiting for me at the finish line. So perfectly mixed with champagne and a splash of more champagne...hey we're on vacation. ain't nobody got time for oj.
After breakfast, which was delish - complements to Chef Shawn - We got cleaned up and headed into the booming town of Roslyn to do a little an-ti-que shopping and have lunch at Washington's oldest Saloon.
Back to our dream cabin for an amazing BBQ and bon fire with the fam. A girl couldn't ask for anymore.
Sunday Morning we all woke up and got ready to ship out of la la land, we packed up and headed out to Brunch at Suncadia Resort. After working Mother's Day brunch for years I was delighted to be on the receiving end of the food!! It was beautiful, and delicious! Man what a treat!!
I felt so spoiled all weekend! Not just because we were on vacation, but also because I was surrounded with my amazing family. We don't all get together often over the year, but when we do there are so many laughs to be had, new memories made and old stories re-told. It's just what the doctor ordered. I hope so much that our little babes get to grow up and experience the love within our families.
We made the trek back home, I cleaned up while Cody headed to the grocery store. After Reagan went to bed we shared a special Mother's day dinner while enjoying a very good bottle of wine. My perfect Mother's day.
And Just for fun, a look at last years Mother's day::
