Well, hello there, strangers! I'm back from my coastal sojourn and trying to catch up on everything that didn't get accomplished while I was frolicking in the sand. We had a wonderful time, though I have to say that traveling with a toddler isn't exactly what one would call "relaxing". It was truly a treat to have some time alone with the Hubs and the Muffin Man, though, so it was definitely a much needed respite.
The weather in Laguna was absolutely spectacular - hot in the sun with a cool breeze - and my two boys had a great time digging sand castles and swimming in the ocean.
Here's the thing, though: we had a really fun time. Yes, it's different and no longer involves sex, cocktails and uninterrupted reading time, but it's awesome to see your child experience playing in the ocean for the first time. Though I certainly wouldn't have complained if we'd gotten a little more sleep.
All I can say is thank goodness for room service coffee.
