It was five days in sunny Southern California which can be titled "Andrew and Miranda Tour 2016"
We stayed with family friends. In a kids bedroom. The four of us, one full sized bed, one pack and play and one dockatot.
But it did have a pool, a trampoline and a makeshift construction site. So basically it was a resort. And we could utilize the amenities during naptime which was a bonus.
Day 1: our hosts.
Day 2: my oldest childhood friend and her daughters in the morning.
My only slightly less old childhood family/friends at a birthday party bbq that night.
Day 3: my college friend's wedding.
Day 4: my college roommate and her kids.
Day 5: swim, pack, fly.
It was not the most relaxing vacation ever. Many, many California highways were traversed in annoying traffic. For him it also meant sitting in the noisy seat, handling the kiddos at meals, chatting up the strangers at our table at the wedding and otherwise being the uncomfortable one so that I could talk and catch up with folks. It feels really good to have finally introduced my family to these important people. He made it happen and made it easier for me which i truly appreciate.
