Well I came home to a dead computer. And now I have an enormous laptop sitting on my lap so I’ll add a little dialogue to these pictures. They make me smile.
Ev did great on the planes out there but she didn’t sleep much. She was just blearily waking up when we arrived into San Luis and with all the commotion and exclamations over her, she had a meltdown and just wanted to bury her head into my neck. It was so sad and kind of adorable.
It was our first time to see my parents new abode and I loved it. Some of it also made me laugh. For instance, Davey’s true garage apartment. He had to go to a furniture store to buy a headboard for his bed because every time he would leave out the garage door, his pillows would fall off. Such a unique problem.
When my parents left the ranch, they left the ranch cats there. So naturally, the first thing they acquired was the neighbor cat, Noodle. He enjoys bossing the dogs around and his favorite chair. Noodle and I have some spectacular hair in this picture.
You might notice Dad’s neon hat making its way into several pictures.
So good to see Cody and Tessa again.
We didn’t see as much of Cody as we would have liked because he would constantly disappear down the beach to play with a new adopted family. And then hours later mom’s phone would ring, ‘Um, do you have a dog named Cody?’. And off we’d run to go get him, seriously miles away.
Tessa is a little more be by you.
Here’s the hat again. Dad really liked to have Evelyn do her sit ups.
We went out to the Jetty at Morro Bay and saw some amazing waves.
I really hated posting this on instagram for all my dear Virginia friends but just couldn’t help myself. It was so wonderfully hot. Not a bad view either.
Seriously the best part of the trip-taking Evelyn outside in just a onesie and letting her enjoy the great outdoors. She would go crazy, kicking up a storm and chattering to beat the band. So much fun.
Mom let me know that black and white really stimulates babies, so every day, they’d sit down to read the paper together. Ev did enjoy it.
Likewise, a little reading time with Poppi. And the hat. Kind of like the man with the yellow hat. Only neon.
So wonderful to see my grandparents with Evie. She spent a lot of quality time with Grama.
It’s nice waking up to that.
Cousins! So much fun seeing the fam bam.
Wow. This picture makes me want to go back.
Hmm. This one too.
Jen Jen getting some quality time at Firestones. This place just never disappoints.
Ahh. Those were the days my friend.
Cousins! I think it’s been since my wedding that I’ve seen some of you! Too long. Wonderful games of Tellestrations, thanks for introducing us.
Our one gray day. Just as pretty.
A good trip indeed.
