[soul food] short hiatus for some family time


Today's post is short, because I have some high priority family time for a few days. I am visiting with my brother and sister-in-law this week. While their nanny is on vacation, they asked me to come down and help take care of my niece, Lola, and unnecessarily bribed me with a plane ticket. Needless to say, I am overjoyed to be here, since we live pretty far apart and don't get to visit often. As a bonus, my parents were here when I arrived on Saturday, and they left yesterday, so I got a couple of days with them, too. Double bonus: got to be with my mom on Mother's Day! In celebration of this stellar visit, here are a few pics from the visit so far. They're all basically straight out of camera/iPhone, so the color isn't perfect, but that cute li'l baby face will make you forget all about that. This is my brother having a sweet daddy-daughter moment.

This is the World's Best Mom enjoying being the World's Best Nana.

And one of me and my sister-in-law on her very first Mother's Day as a mommy. Please pardon the gigantic sunspot.

So that is my week! I hope you are enjoying your week as well, and if you are a mom, I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!
