Elle and I had a wonderful 10-day trip to Bishop! It was fantastic to spend so much time with my mom, and to have Ellie meet so many people! She met Mamarin and Papa Chuck (my maternal grandparents), my aunties Carla and Lisa, my cousins Ace and Paul, Ron, Kathy Zack, and I’m sure I’m missing someone! We celebrated my mom’s and Aunty Carla’s birthdays, and just missed Ace’s birthday too.
We didn’t do anything fantastic, which was the best part! We enjoyed our coffee, wine, beer, ice cream, and conversations. We took a couple good walks (see the intimidating calf above!) and just caught up. It is so special for me to see my mom bond with Ellie. And Ellie genuinely loves her! They are so sweet to each other 💕
