While my family was here visiting, we ate in, but we also ate out. And the first night, we went to a pizza eatery right in my town. It really is one of the best pizzas that I've had. We got one pepperoni and one combination.
The next morning, Jess made a simple breakfast of bacon and eggs and coffee. She makes the best breakfasts, always cooking slow and steady.
I found the original popsicles at the store that we used to have when we were kids. They enjoyed them, and what kid doesn't love popsicles on a hot Summer day?
They spent a long time playing with my vanity, and were fascinated with the jewels and colors and trinkets. I don't wear jewelry that often, but I told Jess that I should get more jewelry just so they could play with it. They had the best time trying things on and looking through it all.
We drove to Mount Shasta....Nel wanted to visit her Grandma at the cemetery, which I thought was a lovely idea. It was a sentimental moment for the girls, as they miss their Grandma very much.
A few years ago, I found a little accordion angel, and it reminded me of my mother-in-law because she used to play the accordion. It was the perfect time to put the angel on her grave site and let her know how much I miss her.
Driving, we saw Mount Shasta in the distance, and it was the first time that I haven't seen snow on this mountain.
Mount Shasta is one of the most spiritual mountains around. It's 14,179 feet, and Nel has climbed it twice! She wants to climb it once again with Mia when she's older.....and I believe she will!
I will leave you with one of my favorite poems, Glorious Mount Shasta.
