Sometime you just gotta get away. When its too hot and the sun is scorching your face off every time you step outside. This time of year the seat belts burn and the the car never really cools off. Really there is no escaping the heat. Unless you like to sit in your house all day in the cool air-conditioning. I do not. So the kids and I headed to California. I told Ivan I’d stay until I was on the brink of insanity. We left Tuesday morning and came back Friday night. I would have stayed longer, the kids were great and we were having fun but we have wedding stuff all next week. Ivan’s brother is getting married and we love his fiancé. Whoop whoop! Anyways, I figured I better get a weekend in before it was back to work for Ivan and back to mom mode in this rotten heat for me. Every time we go to California I want to move there. There’s something about the ocean that is so peaceful. The kids and I woke up got our suits on and headed to the beach. They played, even Jack played and was so content. Jack can be tricky sometimes he likes to crawl around the house and tear stuff up other times he’s at my ankles crying most of the day. In California he was great, he played and he was happy and life was just good. Maybe someday I’ll get my wish and I’ll live in California. I know I know, Its expensive and work is here and family is here. But who doesn’t love an adventure?! We’ll hang out at the beach all day and take our sandy buns back to the house and the kids will help me make dinner. I told Ivan I’ll sell my car get an old blazer chop the top off and cruise Cali. I digress, the trip was great the kids were awesome and we got to see my sister and her family. How I miss them so much.
