Over the holidays, we took a two-week trip to California to visit friends and family. We went to San Diego, Palm Springs, LA and San Francisco (whew!) with two little dudes in tow. Here are a few photos of the chaos, if you’d like to see…
…and had the best tacos of our lives at The Taco Stand.
Alex always makes fun of me for bringing depressing books on every vacation, but this book was so good. In particular, I really liked the protagonist—a Harvard psychology professor with Alzheimer’s—which made the book that much more compelling.
That night, the plan was for the boys to eat dinner together around 6pm and for us to have a grown-up meal around 8:30pm. But Toby begged to stay up for “second dinner,” as he called it, and we of course said yes. It was so cute watching him try to stay awake until 8:30pm. (“Mama, I’ll just take a little rest on the sofa…”) But he made it! And he ate all his steak and potatoes and green beans before sleepily declaring it all very “fancy” and heading to bed. :)
One evening, we played the nerdy game Set, which I have given my dad for Christmas. (I swear we’re having fun.)
And we ordered one of our favorite LA delicacies: salad pizza (with avocado and an everything-bagel crust). Only in LA would they think to put salad on pizza.
P.S. Past vacations to California—Toby was so tiny!
