Home from vacation! It was fun, but a long, long week. Too much togetherness sometimes.
On Friday night (the 31st) we left after LeeRoy got off work. Which was about 5:30. We hadn't eaten, so we stopped at the Spaghetti Factory in Vancouver. Long wait for a table, by the time we got out of there it was after 8. Then we drove to Newport, we got there after 11. Kids were exhausted, we were tired.
Saturday through Wednesday we spent at the beach. We did a lot of walking, went to the outlet mall, went to the aquarium, read a lot of books. Went to see Ice Age The Meltdown (cute). Thursday morning we did massive laundry and cleaned the house and then headed to California at noon. We got to Redding about 7:30, which was pretty good timing. Hung out with Kimber for awhile and went out to dinner, then took her back to her dorm and went to the hotel and went to bed.
Friday we went to the Sundial bridge, shopping, and just hung out most of the day. Went out to dinner for her birthday. We left there around 6:30 and drove to Medford, got there around 9. Yesterday we drove to Salem and picked up the dog and then drove home. Lots and lots of time in the car! LeeRoy went to church today but we all skipped, I just couldn't make it out of bed in time.
I have a tonnnnnn of reviews to write up, I don't know exactly when I'm going to carve out the time to do it. Maybe today for some, who knows.

Off to the shower (finally!) and maybe I'll get some typing time in today.
