Happy Mother’s Day!

I want to send out a Happy Mother’s Day wish to all of you who are Moms.  Whether you are a mom of the human kind through birth, adoption or fostering, or a mom of the animal kind be it dogs, cats or a whole farm … Happy Mother’s Day!  🙂  On this Mother’s Day, I had a glorious start by visiting the head Mom in our family, my Grandma!  For those of you who have been with me through the years, you know that I visit her every 7-10 days, taking that bumpy ride that makes my middle son throw up from the motion sickness.  I still visit her 3-4 times a month, but I only bring the kids once a month due to the bumpy ride.  Although still bed ridden, she is currently in good health and as keen as can be.  She absolutely adores the great-grandkids and their visits really bolsters her spirits.

Here are some pics of Mother’s Day.

The ride has gotten much shorter with this new bridge!

Mother's Day

The new sections ends soon …  I didn’t even notice the guy carrying the window(?) on the scooter until after I saw this picture!  They transport a lot of things on scooters!

Mother's Day

And this is where that nice bridge ends, cue bumpy one-lane road. See the two trucks heading toward us?

Mother's Day

It’s not even rainy season yet. It’s going to get ugly!

Mother's Day

But we don’t mind all that in order for her (and us) to get this: love!

Mother's Day

My mom passed when I was six, so she couldn’t be in this picture. This is still pretty awesome, nonetheless.

Mother's Day

My two favorite girls: Hayley and Gram. This is a girl pile full of cuddles!

Mother's Day

Hayley took a picture of us for our Glamour Shot! 🙂  She’s working on her picture-taking skills, but this is alright.

So thank you to all who have sent kind thoughts and notes about my Gram.  She says she’s got another month on this Earth, but she has said that before.  We never really know, do we?  Until then, I will savor my time with her and try to give her back all the love that she’s given me.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Because I WILL lose some memories …

I just started a personal photo blog to document the places my family and I have been to and will be going to.

Feel free to follow and comment.  In fact, I would LOVE it if you would!  It’s a personal blog mainly focused on my kids and travel.  You can read about it here.

I started this blog because I am a huge picture-taker.  (Not a great one, just from a quantitative stand-point.)  It has been my belief for years now that I cannot rely on having my full faculties – namely memory – when I’m older.  So I have lots of photo albums.  But printing pictures out and getting them shipped to my home in Ho Chi Minh City is non-existent.  Oh, how I miss Snapfish!  So as I was editing the photos, I thought that I would put the main photos on a blog so that all my family – namely those not on Facebook – can see the photos.

You will see posts on my travels and sights and sounds in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC, where I will live for another 2 years), other cities in Viet Nam, Bangkok, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore …  It’s our family goal to save money in all areas so that we can spend it on traveling and gaining experiences with the kids.

Just another WordPress blog.

Just to warn you, because it is a personal blog, my language may be salty.  I’m going to keep it to a minimum since the kids will be seeing and reading this blog.  I hope you will get a chance to do some traveling as well.  A change of scenery does the soul some good!
