The kids had midwinter break last week so we decided we needed a vacation!
Last Saturday we left the snow behind us to fly to brighter, sunnier skies!
We got a condo right on Newport beach, CA for the week!
I couldn't have have asked for anything more. I love the beach and sun
so I was in absolute heaven! I am also so happy that we went with a condo this time.
A lot more room for everyone to spread out, a view a the beach out our window,
lots of windows that created so much light, a kitchen to cook in and a washer/dryer to
clean clothes. Our condo also provided for us everything we would need to cook,
beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys, a surfboard and boogie boards. I was very
in love with our condo and was ready to buy it and move in. Almost had Josh on board
if he didn't have a job to do once we got back. We are considering a transfer in our future.
We left Saturday on our flight around 1ish. It started to snow right before we were getting
ready to leave. Once in California we had to play the waiting game quite a bit. Wait to get
off the plane, wait for luggage, wait for the rental car and then wait to get to our destination.
It was pretty late by the time we got to our condo.
We made a stop for groceries on the way.
We let the kids relax a bit before telling them lights out.
I tried to keep the pictures down to a minimum. If you know me you know I take lots.
After going through all my pictures from the trip I have them down to 1,300. I may have to go
through them a few more times. I hate deleting them because each one makes me happy and is
a moment I want to remember. Collages will help for blog posts.
Come back for day two hopefully tomorrow for fun beach pictures!
