Last week we went on a vacation with some of my extended family to San Diego. It was six fun days full of sand, SeaWorld, a children's museum, fireworks, tons of good food, an aircraft carrier, and lots of cousins playing together. I came home feeling like I needed another vacation to rest (do you feel like that sometimes too?) but instead we came home to a freezer that was left slightly open the whole time. Sigh. So after deep cleaning the freezer, the fridge, and under/behind the refrigerator I am now preparing for a birthday party in a couple days to celebrate our girls. Sydney turned 8 this past Monday and Violet turns 4 on the 17th. Maybe there will be more resting next week.
