Quick Trip to California

It was my kids "Fall Break" this past week and in a very "last minute" decision, we decided to go to California. Through Hotwire, we were able to find a scream of a deal at the Hyatt Resort in Irvine and off we went.

Of course, we had to eat the Crab Cooker. (Don't let my kids bored faces fool you, they LOVE this place--particularly their Clam Chowder.)
We spent every day there at the beach.

And, of course, we had to go and get "Balboa Bars" on the peninsula. This time, my oldest asked if he could get a snow cone instead. We said sure, not knowing that it was going to be large enough to feed a family of six. Look at that thing!
It was a fast, delightful trip.
Now, back to piano practicing, reading, scouts, activity days, dance, golf, etc.

How fun. I think it's so important to get away from "real" life every now and then.

And, I've had really good luck with Hotwire too.

Did your packages come? I checked a couple of days and then looked out the window the rest...hope everything was ok.

Fun! With the weather changing for the worse I think the sun and the beach sounds great.
