We're down south currently. Only for a few more hours though:) We drove down for a wedding that was on Friday. Its been an enjoyable trip. The last one we'll take before Beck gets here. I really don't want to go back to Monterey. Its nice having family so close, and being able to drive up and see good friends. I always forget how much I love coming down to visit. For some reason this visit for me was probably my favorite visit we've had so far since moving to Monterey.
Although our days were packed with visiting family and friends, I never really felt too overwhelmed or worn out. I really cherished the moments I spent with everyone since it'll be a few more months until we make it down again. I really appreciated the effort that people put into seeing us. Its comforting to know that although we've been gone for about 7 months, we're still loved down here! I'm a little bummed that I couldn't make time for more visiting, but I am so happy that we were able to spend time with my family, and Leif's family. Especially our stay with my sister in law and brother and law!
Riley got sick while we were here. Poor baby. It caused her to be cranky the first two days, refusing to nap, and only wanting to be held. By Saturday she was running all about. Even walking up to people other than mommy and daddy and asking if they'd hold her. Sunday we kept her out for most of the day and night, without naps and I'm happy to say, she was a content baby the whole time. Its always risky when you keep a toddler out without naps, haha. I think her favorite part of the day was being able to jump on the exercise trampoline with uncle Jerry:) She hasn't been able to sleep that well at night though, her cough kept waking her up and making her cry because it causes her throat to hurt... Last night was the first night she slept for the majority of the night without crying. I'm hoping that means that she's on her way to recovery! Recovery also means a full nights rest for mommy & daddy:)
Despite Riley getting sick (&Leif... now) this has been a nice 'last L.A. trip before Beck arrives'. We were definitely blessed these past few days!
