Going home

Our trip to Southern California was fab!  We had a great drive down the 101 stopping in Pismo for a park and lunch break, spending an hour crawling through Santa Barbara, and we even managed to get lost looking for a Starbuck's in Santa Paula, we made the most of every minute and laughed our heads off.  Big J was a great co-pilot and the cricket was a trouper!    I loved my one on one trips with Big J but now I'm loving my "mommy and kids" trips even more!

Once we hit the sun and heat filled valley of angels we were go, go, go!  Big J went off to his grandparents and I was on my own with baby in tow and people and places to see!  The highlight of my days was being woken up by my bed mate with a beautiful smile, a "hi mama", and a sweet kiss.  Nothing but momma joy and a perfect way to start our full days!!

The main event of my reunion was upon me before I knew it and while I thought I was okay with going back 20 years in time, nerves hit me hard!  Thank goodness my wonderful hubby flew down just in time to reassure me that I looked great and we'd have a great time.  And a good time was had until the flu smacked me right upside the head and running home we went.  Gerrrrr!   I did though just love seeing old friends and reconnecting with everyone and Mike loved hearing all the stories about me...good times!

The drive home wasn't pretty and I hated coming to terms with the fact the trip ended before it was supposed to and we didn't get all of our plans accomplished....oh well I have no problem jumping in the car to head straight back to the land I love!   For now I'm relishing in the memories of the sun and hot temps and gearing up for school to start in a few weeks!!  YeeeeHaaaaaa!


You still didn't come far enough South!

Sorry you got sick but, from your photos, it looks like you still had a wonderful time. You'll just need to go back again soon :)

Looks like you had a great trip overall(besides the flu). Thank you so much for spending the afternoon with me. I had the best time.

love your new blog look!

And, you looked smashing for your reunion!


How fun! Your hubby was right, you did look great for your reunion! I love the pics at the park. You must love seeing your boy interact with your cutie pie. I know my heart melts every time my older kids play with my lil' cutie pie :)

Looks like a great vacation..
love the photos..
Love ya..

Isn't it crazy how quickly fun trips go! It is over in the blink of an eye!
