california dreamin

first, let me just say something about the pacific northwest: we have the best summers.

but that being said, it's now nearing the end of march, and i haven't seen the sun since september. nor do i expect to until may, at least.

and for the first two years we lived here, we just dealt with the long, dark, gray win-spri-ter-ing in the hopes of making it to the glorious summer, but this year, i've decided to take action. if the sunshine won’t come to us, we’re just going to have to go out and find the sweet, sweet rays ourselves.

on a spontaneous whim (read: three full days of research involving an excel spreadsheet), i purchased our little family tickets to visit here.

booked a suite here.

and am looking forward to taking little miss sunshine herself here, here, and especially here.

can't you just taste that vitamin d?

Ooh I'm very jealous! I'd love to get some sun-- we had almost 70 degree weather on Saturday and Sunday and today it is snowing-- Idaho -- irritating weather!

when are you making your CA trip? I would love to try to meet you in SD for a day. Coronado is fantastic! I can recommend an excellent place for ice cream.

Have fun in San Diego. The monkeys at the zoo are my favorite. And the beaches have free parking. What could be better than that?
