Yikes! It’s been awhile. Soooo, our little (mis)adventure continues as the kiddos keep growing. It’s hard to believe they will be 3 next month!!! Seriously, where does the time go?
Let’s see, since our Death Valley trip we have done a lot… sort of. Our latest trip was our yearly trip to Sedona to spend a long weekend at Grandma Jane’s time share. As usual, we had a great time! The kiddos went on their first jeep tour and seemed to have a pretty good time. They weren’t too sure about it at first, but I think they warmed up to it. The adults thought is was an awesome ride! We have done a jeep tour before, but we had other people in the jeep with us. This time it was nice because it was only us and we were able to stop when we saw interesting stuff or ask the driver a ton of questions. Other than the jeep ride, we pretty much just spent a lot of time at the pool with the kids and Pat and I were able to sneak out a couple times and go on a “date.”
The kids also had their first long train ride recently. I took them up to my parents house to go pick blackberries. Since my car was having issues, I figured why not take the train? It was actually pretty fun for the first 4 or 5 hours. We colored a lot and watched movies and played with moon dough and took a lot of trips down to the cafe. The last couple hours are another story. There were no naps and it was getting to be bedtime so they started getting a little cranky. A few timeouts later and we made it to SLO! The kids had a great time picking blackberries and helping grandma in the kitchen making her famous apple cake. To get back to San Diego, we hitched a ride with my parents so my mom could spend her birthday with us. Well, that tured into a major misadventure. Ella, Grandma, Grandpa, and myself all came down with a horrible stomach flu. It was probably the worst flu I have ever had. Poor Pat! He was stuck taking care of all of us sickies and keeping Jack entertained. He gets the husband/father of the year award for that.
The kids keep getting bigger and bigger and now we are doing the whole potty training thing. I will do a whole post on that in a few day.
Coming up we have the kids birthday and another train ride in store. Hopefully I can keep them entertained for longer this time.
