The LA Scene

So I failed to mention we were going out of town to check out the LA scene, where we’re moving in just a couple of weeks. We hit local restaurants and the beautiful beaches. Ok, so did I say LA is Lower Alabama, not Los Angeles? They’re so close, you know…

Ok, so we really did visit Lower Alabama, but the restaurants we checked out were places like Sonny’s and a local Chinese buffet, not Spagos. We did go to the beach about 40 minutes from where we bought a house. Yes, we even bought a house. Eventful week, I tell ya. The kids were great the whole time, even though we deviated from my otherwise tight nap/feeding schedule. (I don’t mean to be a dictator about nap time, but I just know everyone is happier when they sleep at a certain time.) Well, they were good and we got a lot accomplished.  

We move in just a couple of weeks. Ashley graduates and then we head out just a few days after that. I am flying to LA solo with the kids (insert prayers for me here) and Ashley is going to drive down with the dogs after the movers come. I don’t know who has the better end of the deal, me or him. It’s more of a lesser of two evils if you ask me.

I’ll try to post some pics of our time in LA. I have a couple of kids at the beach and one of the new house, I think.

    Oh no!!! I didn’t know you were moving soooo soon. I wish we could have gotten together with the babies. You’ll have to keep the blog updated so those of us in New England can keep up with your adventures. Your new home looks beautiful.

    Hey, it’s like we’re in sync with the moves! Isn’t it soooo stressful?! It’s great you guys found a house AND got some beach time in too! That looks like a great beach!
    I agree on the lesser of two evils thing. In fact, I rather envy Hubby – he at least gets an “adventure” where I just get the stress of flying with two kids. (and I really don’t like flying!). But then maybe after he’s been on the road a few days I’ll decide I have it better. 😉
