I have not had time to blog. We have been having to spend a lot of time away from the house. The weather has been terrible and has delayed all the contractors. Our yard is 3/4 done and our deck is about 7/8 done with a big hole in it where the fireplace was so we can't let the kiddos on it. Our fence is half done. The shutters are about 7/8 done because I decided to add three more windows. The great room renovation is about 3/4 done, but contractor put in the wrong windows so we have to wait a bit longer to finish. The backsplash is going to be redone starting tomorrow. Sometimes I wonder if we're crazy to move a fireplace and redo a backsplash in a brand new home! But we spend a lot of time at home and especially in the kitchen.
On with the vacation. Day 6 we drove to a hotel near Brittany and Joey's condo.
We played in the hotel pool for a bit. All in all it was a lazy rest day. The next morning we went over to Joey and Brittany's condo. We had fun babysitting little Avery. She was not herself though, with a stuffy nose.
The girls loved playing with all of Avery's toys.
We spent some time at the playground.
Love those Buddha bellies.
We did six days worth of washing at the condo and by the time Joey got home around 12:00 we were ready to drive to Dar's house before the traffic settled in. Everything you do in L.A. has to be planned around the traffic! By the way, I'm not complaining. It got down to 5 degrees at our house while we were gone!
Dar just moved and hasn't landscaped her yard yet, so it was a free for all for the girls. With bathing suits on and a hose of their own, the girls played for hours.
We had tacos for dinner and celebrated Mia's birthday again! Mia was starting to get homesick but that perked her right up!
