My last update was actually posted from San Diego! I had the privilege of helping a friend with her 10 month old during an out of town conference. I enjoyed the sunny (and the overcast and rainy) weather, mucho gelato, and, best of all, time catching up. The baby and I went for multiple walks a day - my girlfriend and I had fish tacos at least every other day - and I read a few books during nap time.
The baby and I checked out the USS Midway - an aircraft carrier turned into a museum. It was pretty neat!
Following San Diego, I spent several days hanging out with my niece and nephews, getting to meet my newest nephew only a month old! There were special meals out, trips to different parks, and some good ol' rough-housing. Before I left, everyone got together for a gorgeous evening - eating and playing.
Those two weeks were a great deal of fun, but I'll admit coming home a little pooped. All my traveling seemed to begin earlier in the morning than sunrise, but after an early flight and a long drive home, I was sure delighted to see my Thomas!
