Not to brag or anything, but we got to spend the last 4 days in sunny California!
We traveled with my Mom & Dad, Gma & Gpa Strawn and my sis Jenelle to attend my cousin Cam's wedding reception.
On Friday we went with my parents to the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park. This park is filled with tons of wild animals and beautiful scenery! Londyn didn't know exactly how to respond to some of the animals... especially the Lorikeets that you could hold and Deer that you could pet. She kept saying "No no" and "Bye" to them.
On Saturday we got up and out early to soak up the sun and check out the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego. Andrew went to Boot Camp at MCRD and had not been back to visit since. It was crazy for him to be back and even remembered the very smell of Boot Camp. We did some souvenir shopping and walked around the grounds. Unfortunately, the Command Museum was closed for the holiday weekend. But we will definitely return in the future to see it!
We couldn't visit California without making a stop at In-N-Out Burger. Boy, were those burgers delish!
The reception was beautiful and of course, the sun was warm and delicious! The reception was held at my Uncle David & Aunt Gaila's beautiful home in Escondido.
Londyn was an absolute angel even with our delayed departure from Portland, barely any naps, lots of car seat and stroller time and even with our 4 hour delay returning home. Throughout the entire trip, she was a doll at every restaurant and never minded staying up late and sleeping in a new crib with Andrew and I in the same room. We were amazed.
We did capture her awesome bed-head do in all it's glory! I love this kid.
Once we got to the San Diego Airport, we were informed that our flight was delayed by 2 hours and then found out later it was delayed another hour on top of that. Andrew, Londyn and I headed to the USO in the airport to get some of Londyn's wiggles out. The volunteers were so kind. They fed us and even gave Londyn some toys. The kids/family room was fabulous, complete with tons of toys, a TV with movies to watch and even a sofa to get some rest. We couldn't have asked for a better way to kill time.
The sun was a breath of fresh air and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip! We were accompanied but great family, yummy food and just having fun together. I can't wait until we can do it all over again!
Thanks Ma & Pa Milne!
