It’s very weird to call going to my old home a vacation…and even if I did consider Southern California a vacation spot, Justin would have to be with us to really call it a family vacation. The kids and I had a great time but I have to admit…we missed our dad and husband.
Day 1: Driving
Day 2: Driving, Hanging with Linsey and her adorable kids, Haley and Colin. Linsey is like a sister to me and those kids are like my niece and nephew…I love them even though I don’t know them completely. I love Linsey and so I love them.
Day 3: More driving, and then to Corona to hang with the “old” crowd from the “old” hood. We had a great time. The kids really enjoyed hanging with their old buddies. Jeremy even got to go to a birthday party while he was there so he got to see A LOT of friends from his old school.
Day 4: More Driving, back to my mom’s house to enjoy her GORGEOUS new pool and guest house. We had a great time with them. Especially the boys…I can not believe how big and mature Adam and Jonathan are. Christopher is so funny!! He still has those cute dimples that are irresistibly cute! Timothy and Benjamin are always such good friends, and uncles, to my kids…I never see much of them because they are off doing “boy stuff”.
Day 5: More driving… Down to Escondido to see Chris, Ashley, Brenlyn and Grayson. My kids were in HEAVEN!! With 5 acres, a beautiful pool and a gorgeous house, there was no shortage of things to do. A special thanks to Uncle Chris for teaching my boys to love GUNS!!! (ok…pellet guns) Wow, they had a blast!
Day6: More driving…to Redondo Beach!! Justin’s dad lives on a BOAT!! Yep, that’s right. Let me just say…we had front row seats for a great fireworks show! Happy 4th of July!
Day 7: Drive HOME!!!
As you can see, we did A LOT of driving. Despite all the time in the car, the kids were great and we really enjoyed seeing all of our friends and family!
