No worries, I'm grateful for every second I spent there (thanks honey for letting me go and thanks Steph and Talon for letting me invade). It was so great!
When we lived in California, I think I was pretty good at neglecting housework when the beach or Disneyland called us, but I'm not sure I searched out every spare minute to spend time with my friends and just relax with them. Was I taking them for granted? Shouldn't we all live more like we are on vacation and less like we do? Would we be better at going out of our way for our kids to do the things that bring them joy?
Speaking of bringing joy to our children ...
Possibly the greatest moments of their lives! Yea for Becky who offered to sign us into Disneyland (and extend our trip one more day!). Boo to all you crazy moms buying your kids Jedi outfits and making signs so your kids will get chosen to be Jedis! Jedi Training Academy is as competitive as beauty pageants for toddlers! For the record ...since Nixon and Easton were perfectly content to do NOTHING but sit at the Jedi Training Academy until they were chosen, I did break down and buy some overpriced Disney markers so they could make themselves little signs. It worked, so our 3rd try (1st with signs though!), they were both chosen.
Anyway ...I loved seeing the people I did, I wish I'd had a few one more days to get to talk more to some of you, I can't wait to come back. I'm going to spend more time looking around me here, asking what I would do if I came here on vacation, who would I be dying to spend more time with, and I'm going to live like that a little more!
