My Mom comes for a visit ~ Arriving Day
My mom came for her fist visit. She flew in on Wednesday August 25th. Mom had not been to California since she was 10, so it was like it was never for her. I left with the kids to go pick her up at LAX. Her plane was on time but it still was very hectic getting her to the car and out of the airport. We got on the rode and headed home. She was already overwhelmed with the traffic and lanes of traffic on the freeways. Poor kids talked her ears off the entire way one. We spent the afternoon and evening hanging out at home. We took Mom to the pool for a few hours and showed her around the complex. Then we walked to the corner grocery store and made hamburgers for dinner. The kids had borrowed the movie "Jaws" from a neighbor so they watched in 2 different parts that night. The Settlers Game was broken out and we played 3 games that night.
