For my birthday, Jason and I went on our first ever overnight adventure away from the kiddos. My oldest is almost 7. Go ahead and do that math!
Since it was just up on Saturday, and back on Sunday we went to Santa Barbara which is one of the most beautiful spots in the world I’d say. Well, at least in my very untraveled world.
We stayed at a lovely hotel of course. With an ocean view! Ooh la la!
One of the coolest things we did was go see the monarch butterflies in the eucalyptus groves. Thousands come in the winter and clump up in the trees. Check it out! (The big brown clumps are ALL butterflies.)
And then we were back home to the sweeties. Guess who stayed in my lap the longest? (Hint: It was not little Natalie like I thought.)
It was this one. The one that hasn’t been left in 7 years. Love this girl!
And now life is back to normal. Which is good! This was a good trial run, since I’m sure we’ll want to do this again perhaps for a longer stretch in August when we celebrate our 10 year anniversary.
Capturing the context of contentment with Like Mother, Like Daughter
Have a wonderful day!
