We went on a little vacation last week - well, the kids and I tagged along on Jason's business trip so WE got to play while he worked. Don't feel too sorry for him though, he was in Vegas last week with his brother for some fun. :)
We hit San Francisco and got to see some relatives I hadn't seen in a long time, and our kids got to meet! Nothing like second cousins having a blast. And Adam discovered snails. We don't have those here in the desert...and now I know that if I want to keep him busy for a few hours, I'd just need to import a bucket of them.
So then we headed down to the good ol' O.C., and hit Huntington Beach for some surf and sand.
Heidi, saying, "Will you be there tomorrow? We are going to be there!"
Of course I say, "Heck YES!" Sure, we live in the same state....a mere one city apart, but real life does not lend a lot of time to get together. So the next best thing is for two D-families to meet up in Cali!
And what a lovely lunch we had! Heidi and her hubby are just two of the nicest, most genuine people you could ever meet and after a little warming up, our kids were acting like little crazy people in the restaurant, having a blast together. It really warmed my heart to see Adam bonding with Jack. And I think Adam is jonesing for a play date with Max one of these days! They showed off their pods, they both had numbers in the 300's pre-lunch (LOL! - I think we were both laughing at how hard it is to maintain fairly normal BG's while on vacation!)
This is our favorite picture. They were just walking along the pier, chatting. Love!
What a blessing it is to have all of these D-mamas in my life. And I know that as Adam gets older, this will be more and more important to him - when he's old enough to go to camp, he'll already have friends there to help him enjoy it even more. Thanks to the DOC, our circle of "family" is bigger than before.
