I just got back from a little road trip with my two favorite girls. It’s become tradition at least once a year to make the trek down to Morro Bay to visit my younger brother and the girls’ fun Uncle Jason. We broke the trip up by staying a night in San Jose with an old college roommate and playing around at the San Jose Discovery Museum (fun!!) on our way down and then came home staying a night at my brother and sister in laws. This allowed for 3-4 hour chunks in the car at max and kept us all from going a little stir crazy. While this plan was still not fool proof and my dear S. had a few tough moments when her precious blanket would fall where Mom couldn’t reach it and could not understand why I wouldn’t pull over immediately to get her blanket. This was so frustrating for Mom & S. but somehow we survived!
It was so great catching up with an old friend and letting the girls explore the museum in San Jose. We still can’t believe we’ve been out of college almost 10 years! How did that happen?
Our time in Morro Bay was relaxing and filled with as much beach time as I could squeeze in. Since my brother had to work during the day we’d do our own thing and explore on our own and then meet up with him late afternoon for dinner.
The first full day we spend the morning walking in Cambria and then playing on the beach in Cayucos. Then we headed to the Mid State Fair in Paso Robles when he got off work and had our fill of crazy huge corn-dogs, cold Coors Light, and enjoyed people watching and taking the girls on a few rides.
Jason was able to take a half day Thursday and we picked up him from work in San Luis Obispo, had lunch at the airport and the girls loved watching all the airplanes and helicopters taking off and landing, then spent the rest of the afternoon at Avila Beach. Sun, sand, and more sand….what else could you want from a picture perfect afternoon at the beach?
While it was great to leave it was so great to get home and see my hubby. The girls couldn’t get out of the car fast enough and have been cuddled up with him non-stop since we’ve been home.
Good to leave but great to come home. 🙂
