greetings from sunny california






on tuesday we decided to leave hot hot hot nevada and go see my sister danna in california
when i say me, i mean me, my four children (FOUR) and my gracious mother.
all day wednesday i tried to pack and clean. and all day wednesday i thought, "why am i doing this? this is so stupid!" actually, the same things i said during natural childbirth.   it just was so hard to pack and pack and pack, for only 3 nights and 3 days.

when we reached primm, nevada i was ready to turn around. "this is just not worth it" i told my mom. but we kept going. luckily, 2 hours into the drive, all the children were asleep and we cruised all the way to highland. we pulled in at 11pm and conked out.

let me just say this, it has been so wonderful. wonderful to get out of the house. wonderful to watch the girls light up at the sight of the beach. the stores! the palm trees everywhere!  while driving around lucy said, "where we live is ugly!"  which reminds me to teach her there is a difference between "ugly" and "different".

we have another day full of swimming and sun.

and yesterday, it was 75* at the beach. SEVENTY FIVE DEGREES!

the girls stepped out of the car and said, "oooh! it's cold!"

that was worth the entire trip
