Sora and I got home from our trip on Monday night, and everything went smoothly. We enjoyed less than 24 hours in Washington before heading down to California, but in that time we snuck in a visit with Mimi, Sora's former nanny, and Sarah, her grand daughter. We also saw my grandma who drove us to the airport.
The weather in California was beautiful each day we were there. Santa Barbara was the perfect vacation destination with a toddler. She loved walking on the pier, visiting the zoo, and playing at nearby parks. We also stopped at a huge library (because no vacation would be complete without a library visit) and a nature preserve near the airport before we headed back to Washington.
When we got back to Washington, we got to spend a few days with friends and family before heading home to Wisconsin. Sora seems to have grown up on the trip, even though it was only 10 days long! She seems like a much older, smarter kid than when we left.
Unfortunately, Kyle had to leave for a conference before we got back and won't be home until Friday. Sora has been acting very funky since we came home with a ton of crying, a fever, and a lot of drooling. Hopefully she feels better soon!
