What a crazy whirlwind the past 48 hours have been! Tuesday night I made the decision to move our flight up by a day in case our flight would be affected by the snow storm that was scheduled to hit our part of the united states starting Wednesday late afternoon. Turns out that was a good decision. Our area was hit by between 12-18" of more snow! Airports were closed, highways closed and some areas were slow to get plowed. It was crazy, too because the snow wasn't supposed to start until between 3-4pm, but it began much earlier. The picture I've attached is of the beginning of the storm on our way out of town yesterday morning at about 10am. Luckily we were one of the last flights to get out.
And today, what did we do? Got up(kinda) at 3:45am PT because the kids are 3 hours jet lagged-ate pancakes at 6am (at the moment the hotel restaurant opened)-napped a little while the kids watched a couple of shows until most things opened at 9am, went to Starbucks (mommy and daddy's lifeline) then took a little trip to Seal Beach. This was so relaxed, beautiful and a much needed respite from the hustle and bustle of the last several days. It was gorgeous, warm, and refreshing!! The kids got out their much needed energy and we discovered many fun things, including the casing of a sting ray, lots of gorgeous shells, rocks and what a rip tide looks like. There really is nothing quite like walking barefoot on the beach in the morning. So much fun! This 2nd picture is from the beach this morning- quite a contrast from the snow dont chya think??
When we returned to the hotel we took the kids to the hotel pool until my mom and her husband arrived to join us. Tomorrow morning my sister flies in with her sig-o and then we'll spend the day at Disneyland with our family. It's going to be so much fun! I am really looking forward to it! Then Saturday it's off to CHA and I am REALLY looking forward to THAT!! :) I will be posting CHA photos on my FB page as I take them- but will also post them here with a bit of a delay. Hopefully you'll enjoying seeing everything!! And some of you i look forward to meeting there!!
So, until then I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week! Thank you so much for stopping by!! ;)
Sorry if this is a bit jumpy post- I'm writing it from my phone and it's more difficult to type/edit on this screen. And I'm a bit jet lagged still so I'm a bit tired still too. ;)
