Vacation in Carlsbad, California
Four days and three nights was great fun. My two nieces (7 and almost 2 years old) and my nephew (5 years old) knew how to keep the adults energetic. I do love kids but, I must say, I also love my quiet man cave here in Arizona. But short burst of change is good.
It was too cold for the water but I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with family and spending time on the beach. We did go to Legoland for the day (well for me about 3 hours) and the kids had a blast.
I tried out my new iPad camera and the shots you see on this page are mostly from there. I do love sunsets and sunrises and try to take as many pictures as I can. However, as you know, watching sunsets in person is triple the fun! Pictures only can grasp so much but being in person is just amazingly cool, especially when there is a very awesome sunset to behold.
I sure am blessed with a wonderful family. My Dad is an amazing Christian man who is my hero here on earth. My bonus mom is such a blessing to have in our family. As the oldest brother, I realized how blessed I am to have great younger brothers. No, we don’t see eye to eye on things and that is ok. I just am immensely proud of my two brothers and where they are in their lives at this time.
It was a great short vacation trip but I sure missed my queen size bed and pillows. Hello bed! Hello pillows! Hello quiet! Boy did I miss you all!
