Well we made it safe and sound. Didn't realize how much I missed being in CA. I love the palm trees and a lot of the different shrubbery, not to mention the SW architecture. I don't like how it's so crowded, but it's not nearly as bad as many other cities I've seen.
We are thankful to be staying at his parents house. It was nice having a peace and quiet and a nice bed to fall into.
The trip was interesting. We were not able to sit together when we flew out of Los Angeles to San Diego. They had double booked some seats, so we all got moved around. It was a puddle jumper flight so very cramped, but just thankful for the flights and that we are here safe. I'm not much for flying, but actually enjoyed the trip this time except the landings. They were real bumpy and we hit the flight line tipping and then a back and forth swerve. I think I elbowed the woman next to me as I jumped along with my heart. ;) Yes, I'm a baby when it comes to flying.
We got to see Rick's step brother and their son last night! This was our first time seeing him and he's 7 same age as our oldest grand daughter. How sad is that. We haven't met his little brothers son yet either. Not sure of his age. We did see his older daughter shortly after she was born. So we are excited reuniting with family and meeting new ones. Oh and we only met his step sisters oldest son, who's graduation we are here for. We are happy that the Good Lord worked it out so that we could be here for that. It's the least we can do after not seeing them since they were tiny tots.
I wish his dad and older brother and sister were able to be here as well. I'm hoping that a family reunion can happen soon. I don't know how his family would feel, but mine was talking about how they would love to have one with Rick's family out here in CA. as we all love to visit here. There is so much we would be able to do. The kids would have a blast and it would be a chance for all the family to reunite and get to know one another again. My family has only met his dad and his second wife. They have yet to meet his new wife. His dad's previous wive's have passed away. His second was just a year ago. It's been hard on him. He still grieves Rick's mom.
Any how, I need to get a wiggle on here, as I need to get in the shower and get ready. Hopefully hubby is done. Love you all. Have a blessed God filled day!
