My husband and I just got back from a fabulous trip to Southern California to see our elder son, who lives near Irvine. We had a blast there! I had been out to visit my son a few years ago, but it was my husband's first trip to CA so we did all the touristy things like go to Hollywood and all that. I even went to the gym with my son! We also had some nice walks on the beach and some totally awesome food. Honestly, the produce they have here is incredible. So fresh and tasty!!
During our absence Syracuse got totally dumped on with snow and when we got back I literally couldn't get to the house. The snow was up past my butt so I couldn't walk. Anyway, our younger son helped a lot and we got things cleared up in an hour or so. Still, I am left to wonder why I live here. I don't ski or skate and so this winter "wonderland" is totally wasted on me. I am so ready to go back to Southern California!
