Adventures in Travel

It's been quiet here on this blog as of late.  Just in case you hadn't noticed.

We have been busy and gone.  What with preparations and packing and traveling.

You see, my nephew got married this past weekend in San Diego and we went.  We went because we wanted some sun.  But we only got one day of sunshine and it rained the other two!  And it was my nephew getting married not just anybody and the fact that we got our tax refund back just in time or we wouldn't have gone anywhere.

Bummer, rain.  Yeah, tax refunds!

But the wedding was lovely, the reception a blast and the company was delightful, so all in all we had a good time.  More on that later and I have pictures, lots and lots of pictures.

Anyway we left Saturday morning bright and early to catch our flight.  I had packed so carefully and even made a list, yet we left the house without the stroller!  Argh.

Do you know what it is like to try to cart two suitcases, a camera bag, a diaper bag, a C-PAP machine, a backpack, my purse and keep track of a husband, a four year old and a one year old in an airport?  Not an easy task I tell ya!  One I am loathe to repeat.  Almost as fun as trying to keep said one year old happily confined on my lap during the flight.  It might have been easier to wrestle an alligator in a swamp!

He did sit still for a few minutes, long enough to watch half of one story on the "Thomas the Tank Engine" DVD.

The shuttle ride from the airport was just as fun.  HT was glad to be in San Diego, can you tell?  And he likes to play with his hair.

Anyway I have more to share, but will do that another day.  We played on the beach, "swam" in the pool, rode a "bike".  Went to the naval yard and saw the Midway.  Ate a lot, laughed a lot and walked a lot, even saw a shark.
Not the best picture, but that my friends is a two foot long shark
that was lurking in the water beneath the foot bridge to the marina.
When we came home we were greeted with a snow storm so today we have been digging ourselves out and laundry and grocery shopping and I'm ready for bed.

Ta ta for now.
