Ahh...sunshine! No, unfortunately not here in the Midwest but Blake and I were able to spend last week in San Diego, CA (area) where he attended a professional conference and I, well...I caught up on some writing, napping, reading & other such pleasures :)
Xander stayed with his grandparents, splitting the time between his 'city grandpa/ma' and 'farm grandpa/ma' and has been asking the past several days, "Grandma coming? What grandpa doing?"
We spent a few days in La Jolla which has amazing fish tacos, sea lion sightings, kayaking, Asian fusion fare and somewhat scary hotel service (i.e. our hotel lost the keys to our rental car!). We travelled north to Altadena on Sunday to attend church, driving in a convertible along the coast for a good portion of the drive -- I went with the carefree/wind-blown look :) Afterwards, we were able to spend a few hours in Redondo Beach with our friends, Justin & Robin and family. We took the short ferry ride from SD to Coronado Island later in the week where we walked around the town & the grounds of the Coronado Hotel (wow!).
Instead of posting pictures of Blake & I -- of which there are few b/c we're not nearly as photogenic as our little man -- here are some postcard views of our time together.
