We got back from our family vacation to California on Sunday evening.
On this trip we logged 28 hours in the car, visited 2 grandparents, 6 aunts and uncles (4 of them being greats to Jace), 4 cousins and 3 second cousins. We also had some wonderful family time as just the three of us at a house my grandparents own on the coast in Cambria.
We had lots of time on the beach—some playing on the sandy beach and some walking on the rocky beach.
I loved having so much time to take it easy after having such a busy few weeks of cleaning before leaving.
Jace loved having so much time with Mommy and Daddy’s full attention on him.
And he proved to be an amazing road trip traveler! The activities I had packed were great (as seen in THIS POST) and there were even a few things we never got to doing. I thought of one more road trip tip: if you’re staying somewhere over night along the way, pack a separate bag with just what you need for the night—toiletries, pajamas and clothes for the next day. That way you don’t have to unload your whole trunk and the suite case for a stop that only lasts a few hours.
And the best part about coming home? My parents house sat for us while we were gone and did some wonderful projects around our house which included cleaning some nasty stains out of our carpets and painting Reese’s room! I love how the color turned out.
And it was so fun to hold up a few of the items I have for the room against the wall color and see it’s going to come together exactly how I imagined.
I’m also realizing just how much I have to get done in the next four weeks. I’ve been saying all along for so many things, “I’ll do that in August.” Well, August is here so it’s time to check things off the list! I made the window covering for the nursery today and I’m just hoping it all works out when I get it hung later. It’ll be a fun project to share with you! I’ll also be having a BIG garage sale this weekend full of boy clothes, craft items, home décor and furniture. Do you have any garage sale tips for me? This will be the first one I’ve done at my home.
Thanks for stopping by!
