One of our favorite storylines involving Lydia McLaughlin on Real Housewives of Orange County last season was her sweet relationship with her mom, Judy. Now, we're getting to see just how close they are as Lydia helps Judy celebrate her birthday!

On February 19, Lydia  who has decided not to return to RHOC for Season 9  posted a lovely photo of herself with Judy heading out for lunch on the special day. "Birthday lunch with my mama @ocjudymom #shes66 #hotmama #goodgenes," Lydia captions the shot.

Wow! Judy definitely looks youthful for 66, and we're loving her hair and cute floral jacket. And Lydia looks gorgeous, too! Way to show off that midriff, girl. And how awesome are Lydia's shoes?

Several Twitter followers noted that they loved Lydia's blue skirt. "Zara #yeah!" Lydia replies about it. 

And several of Lydia's former co-stars wished Judy a happy one. "HAPPY 66th Judy!! @oclydia," Alexis Bellino writes, while Gretchen Rossi adds, "Happy birthday momma!"

It's nice to see both Alexis and Gretchen wishing Judy the best, especially Gretchen, since Lydia and Gretchen didn't always see eye-to-eye during Lydia's time on the show. 

We hope Judy had a spectacular birthday! And we wish their family all the best.

Will you miss Lydia on RHOC this season?
