Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! When I saw this quote it made me smile. The older I get, the more I know this to be true! I remember being a teenager and my mom giving me advice, or warning me about how certain situations would turn out…and of course being a teenager I thought I knew it all…and then later thinking, “aww man, she was right!” Ha
I made reservations two months ago for Mother’s Day at a restaurant at a winery that we’ve wanted to go to the past couple Mother’s Days, but it books so far out! I was so excited that we got reservations this year…and then Friday it was raining! This winery is over an hour from our house and it’s pretty much all outdoors. Needless to say, I was so bummed to cancel our reservations! But the day is about spending quality time with our mom, so it was still a great weekend!
We decided to go to The Getty museum in La since it was stormy out! She’s never been, so we were excited to take her.
Not only is The Getty an incredible museum, but the grounds are gorgeous.
And the view is incredible. Even though it was an overcast day, you could still see downtown.
My parents 🙂
There are so many great exhibits there, but “Irises” by Van Gogh is one of my favorites.
The Core Four!
We had such a great day at the museum, then we went out to eat. Nothing better than spending the day with my favorite people! #fabfive
Taking flowers to my mom and Yia Yia Sunday!
We went to visit with my Yia Yia and take her gifts for Mother’s Day! She was so happy to have us!
Then Erik and I went home and did the usual…laundry, meal prep and got ready for the week ahead.
Our weekend was filled with spending time with family; our favorite thing to do!
Did you do anything special for Mother’s Day?!
Today I’m linking up with Biana!
What a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! Super sad you guys weren’t able to make it to the winery, but it looks like you made the best of it and had a wonderful time!
I hope we can make it out there another day, and hopefully then it won’t be crowded!
ahh – bummer on having to cancel.
But I’m sure your mom was just thrilled to spend any time with you 🙂 Moms are like that 🙂
I think I was more bummed than she was about not going to the winery! We still had a great day though!
I’m sorry your original plans were scratched but sounds like it was still a wonderful day! That museum is on my list of places to visit! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston
I highly recommend you go to The Getty if you take a trip out to La!
Booo to having to cancel your plans for the winery, but yay for the museum. Looks like a gorgeous place, and a wonderful day with the fam <3
I know I was bummed, but it turned out to be a great day!
Bummer about canceling plans that you were looking forward to, but looks like you guys salvaged a great Mother’s Day at the Getty! How pretty are those flowers too?!
We ended up having a great day! I bought the flowers at Trader Joes, they have the best ones!
Yes – it’s definitely true…Mom is always right! Looks like you had a fun weekend together! xo
The older I get, the more I realize how she’s always right!
It looks like you had a wonderful weekend with your family – even though you had to cancel your plans!
It turned out great, even though it wasn’t what we planned!
That sucks that you had to cancel your reservations for Mother’s Day because of the rain, but hopefully you’ll be able to visit sometime soon! It sounds like you still had a great weekend with your family at The Getty! I love the grounds of The Getty so much, all of the flowers are so beautiful!
