This one's for the girls...

My mama, sister and I spent the weekend together at a resort in Carlsbad. We spent our time lounging around like that old TV show life styles of the rich and famous, soaking up all this beautiful place had to offer. Oh my gosh was it amazing! The warm sunshine, the smell of salt in the air, gentle breezes and the occasional golf carts reverse beep to let us know we weren't dreaming. This was a quick little get away to celebrate my mom and what is now known as our first "Annual Mama" tradition and it was awesome.
This weekend we ate
we laughed
we drank,  I had a cucumber mojito (or two) made with cucumber vodka and wow was is good!
we laughed
we went on walks
we laughed A LOT... The kind that leaves your cheeks and bellies sore
we had a message
we played cards, my sister won
and yep you guessed it, laughed some more...
We also spent some time laying by the pool, over looking the golf course and decided to make it an annual event. Hoping in the future as our girls grow, marry and become mama's of their own they'll want to join in as well.  
Did I mention we laughed our booties off? Yes... Okay.
Do you have any traditions that you do with family?

    hello to your Mom and Sister (I miss Sister - she makes me laugh too!!)
    I so enjoyed the time spent in her backyard laughing about nicknames and her fun game (still can't remember the name of that game - paper questions??)

    Nice tradition to begin...
