We spent a chunk of time in California this month. I'm sorry I didn't contact all my California friends, but it's just tricky when the goal is to spend time with my family and I saw just about all of you when we were out last in October... Though I was thinking of you all...
The husband was away in Germany on business and that left me with an entire week to escape to the Motherland where it practically rains good Mexican food. Three cheers to that.
We had a nice time hanging out and relaxing. Not a lot to speak on, just lots of love and family time. So I'll leave it to the pictures and a little bit of commentary.
Two weeks later, we headed back to California with the whole family this time. Phew. I needed someone to help me wrangle the kiddo into a nap. He gets a C for the trip to California and a B- for the return flight. Hah. This time, we flew into San Diego and stayed at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad where Ray had business meetings and such. The grandparents came down again and hung out with B so we could have not one, but two date nights! Well, they were business dinners, but still! Most of the time even business dinners are spent wrangling the baby.
We're back in the Midwest and wouldn't you know... we have no plans to leave anytime soon... err... well... until the end of the month when we go to Ohio with B's other set of grandparents and Aunt Samantha! But no plane tickets are booked for any future trips. I know, can you even believe it?
