I'm Tired...

...I think I'll go home now. - Forest Gump

This will be a short post due to the fact that I'm exhausted, but hey that's okay.

So our trip was fab! Besides being in one of California's greatest state parks, we were there for Morro Bay's annual Harbor Festival AND we got to spend a few hours with a fellow adoptive mom and blogger Paulette and her daughter Annalise. It was so fun spending time with the two of them and getting travel advice, sharing parenting stories and just plain talking. On a red thread note here...we made these reservations to camp here 7 months ago and it just so happened that Paulette and Annalise were in the area at the same time. Love those moments!

We got sprinkled with rain on Saturday, but still got out for a long walk with the girls and by the time we took the trolly to the festival the sun. This trip was a bit of a change for us since I didn't plan any meals, well actually I did plan meals...OUT! We ate at some fabulous restaurants one of which was outside dinning at the harbor with a cat that walked all around the tables saying hi. The restaurant was across the road from the campground, so by the time we finished dinner is very dark and the stars led us back to the trailer. We also had some coffee and yummy treats at a cute bakery called Sun-n-Buns, which is funny since we call Summit Sunbuns.

When we came home we could see that the rain we had on Saturday was also here and has washed the yard clean and stripped our Japanese Maples of some leaves. Both Mike and I commented that this will be the last time the trees will shed without Jennifer being her to witness it's beauty. God is good!

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came -
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
