Anyways, we didn't do too much the first couple of days. Dylan had school on Friday and informed us that we could have no fun while he was gone - only drink hot chocolate, coffee and poop on the toilet like old people. (Seriously - that is what he told us.) Where does he come up with this stuff? So we had no fun on Friday. At least until he got home. My parents watched the boys for us so Garth and I could go out - ALONE!! We almost forgot what that was like. We didn't even do anything that fun and exciting, except get out of the car in 2 seconds and back in about that quickly. What a freeing feeling!!! I know, it doesn't take that much for Garth and I. We did go to dinner and got to sit at a table for 2. How nice.
It rained the entire time they were here so we headed up to Big Bear to find some snow. California is big on snow chains around here - GOT CHAINS??? No, but I have a 4x4 Expedition. That is another story. Big Bear was beautiful. We stopped and had some yummy pizza and then found the boys a sled hill. It is a place I was glad to see, but hope to have the chance to go back and explore some more. On the way home, we make a stop at Bass Pro Shop. I think the boys enjoyed that as much as Big Bear and the snow.
The rain hampered our activity, but we did make it down to La Jolla to see the seals. It was cold and very windy, but the landscape was lovely and the seals were abundant. It was well worth the drive for the crab cake sandwiches we had down in Point Loma.
It was fun having my parents here. The boys had a great time playing with Puppy and Jaydon hi-yahed Granddad a few million times.
We are looking forward to their visit again in March, hopefully accompanied by my sis and bro-in-law.
