Oh this mama of mine. I dream of the day she can retire and just play with us all day when we come out there. So does she. It's amazing to me how my girls seem to just KNOW that she is my mama and therefore practically theirs. When we left them for Newport, it was the first time I'd seen Mila totally unaware of whether I was staying or going. She had nana. Nana is all the sweet smell, soft skin, and gentle voice you could ever need. Believe me, I know. She probably didn't even know I was gone.
This trip started because Ross was working in Rancho Santa Fe Tue and Wed... and ended in Orange County where I had a shoot. (I still feel like I should put that in quotes and add a wink... but what else am I going to call it right?) In between was the usual play at my mom's, a morning with my sis-in-law, Teresita and her boys, Balboa Park, and a trip to the zoo with my sister, Mel. I haven't gotten to those pictures yet... hence.... the title.
