California (think OC theme song)

So we've been hanging out with Grandma Aileen & Grandpa Ken in La La land for the past week.  Eventually Mommy with get pictures from Grandma's camera(s), but here are some highlights.  Ah... so much warmer than home!  So much warmer than Daddy.  We left last Wednesday right before a decent sized storm smacked DC.  Poor Daddy was without power for about 2 days!  I'm glad we weren't there.  I think Davin (and I) would have cried all night.

We've been doing lots of fun things in this warm weather - walking to the park, playing with Baby Ava and Baby Olivia.  When Mommy went to go give some talks and work (geez we're on vacation), Davin and I had the most fun.  Grandma and Grandpa took us to a cool park with a pond with lots of ducks, the beach and Santa Monica Pier.  We all went on the carousel on the pier - Davin's first time on a carousel... but I'm an old pro.  We also went to the aquarium on the pier and touched all sorts of fun things.  I didn't really like the sea cucumber but Davin dove right in (almost literally).  Davin also loved his first trip to the beach.  He went crawling right into the sand... and he didn't even eat any!  What a big boy!  I made sand castles with Grandma and played in the water... burrrrrr!  Fun but COLD. 

We're headed home soon - Saturday.  I'm excited to see Daddy... but I'm not looking forward to the cold weather.

Glad to hear you are much warmer in Southern California than DC. The carousel, the beach and the aquarium sounds like you and Davin had a great time. Maybe someday, you can visit us in No California and we do somethings the same and somethings quite different. In the meantime, we are looking forward to seeing you and Davin in March.
