I’m breaking from my regular format due to the fact that we just got back from a trip to California and there are quite a few pictures. There are a few from the week before our trip, but most are from California. We normally go in December, between Christmas and New Year’s, but that’s about when this baby is due, so we bumped up the trip to a safer time for me to be travelling. We had so much fun! We visited with family (including Tracy, who was able to fly in for a couple of days) and friends (sorry if we missed anyone…it was a really short trip), we went to the beach and Knott’s Berry Farm, and just relaxed. We thought we had quite the adventure on our drive out to CA when our low tire pressure warning went off in the-middle-of-nowhere-Texas and Paul had to change one of our tires that had cracked (we were able to find a gas station before the tire went completely flat and drove on our spare to the next town to replace it)…but that’s nothing compared to our drive back where Paul had to change another tire on the side of an on-ramp (no gas stations nearby) in middle-of-nowhere-California (and bought another replacement as soon as we got to the next town) and yet another while at a rest stop just outside of Phoenix. When we got to Phoenix, we found a Walmart, replaced the third flat tire and went ahead and replaced the only old tire we had left (for fear that if we didn’t, it would also go flat at some point on our trip). Ugh. At least we were always able to find a safe place to change the tires and were also able to replace them quickly (and had the means to do so). Our last leg of the trip home was (thankfully) uneventful. So, with that, enjoy the deluge of pictures (which, as is typical with vacation posts, are probably not in chronological order)!
