California Easter Bunny
In typical How’s It Going Eh fashion, better late than never – a blog post from spring!
But now that I have watched all available episodes I decided, “wow maybe I’d better do a blog post.”. And wow is right because as I looked through my pictures I realized I hadn’t even done a post about my spring trip to Los Angeles. Wait. Did I go to LA in spring? Did I really??? Honestly I’ve been so tired I wouldn’t have believed I went if it were not for photographic evidence. That is another important purpose for this blog. So that I can remember that some events did happen. For pete’s sake. Consarn it.
NO SIR NOT ONE BIT.
It was great having cousin time + being back with baby Isabella. Who is a baby no more. This girl is a full fledged toddler!
For us, four has been an amazing age. From 18 months until now were pretty ugly toddler years. Langdon was a firestorm of anger + emotion. I’m really enjoying my guy at four. We have conversations, we discover, we ask questions – it’s rad.
Note the Trader Joe’s bag. Always Trader Joe’s. Forever and always.
You be the judge.
Not even caring that I appear mentally unhinged. Not even caring, folks.
Hahahahah! It was flaming hot that day + the kids are at ages right now where they both want to run in opposite directions. So it was a bit of a cranky pants day for all of us.
Yes if you’re wondering, there are animals + tractors + a little playground at the farm but I have to keep this short. Don’t forget – my bedtime. The absolute best part of the farm is the big tractor that pulls the little bee cars for a ride around the farm!
Jeff painted, cleaned + worked his butt off. The condo needed a major facelift + was left uncleaned after the last tenants. It was disgusting. At night he slept in a sleeping bag on the floor. It’s just not worth it to commute from downtown Los Angeles to Agoura Hills every day.
MOXI is small, but it is a very thoughtful, clean + beautiful space. It is definitely worth a visit.
So the week went by + Jeff was away working on the condo. But over the weekend, I had run to Target + left the kids with Jeff. Clementine was jumping on grandma’s bed + landed smack face first on the bamboo floor. When they put the word goose egg in the dictionary they should put a picture of Clementine next to it.
Oh my poor baby!!!! After the fall there was no confusion, no sluggishness, no sleepiness or other sorts of warning behavior. But for a good month there was bruising. And at night I couldn’t sleep because I was constantly checking to make sure she was still breathing! Kids! That episode added a multitude of grey hairs to my head.
Man, how I miss seeing those iconic blue lifeguard stations. I miss miles of sand. I miss big huge crashing waves. I miss seeing forever across the horizon of the ocean. Vancouver beaches are tiny, the waves lapping + the views MEH.
Time to depart. We packed in a lot of fun in LA. And the condo looked sparkly + a new renter moved in! Phew, it was stressful.
With all the visits I’ve done with the kids, Jeff has been able to fly with us maybe two times. It is a HELLUVA lot easier to deal with two kids with two adults!!! Omg, it was heaven to have his help.
That caps off the spring trip that I made to Los Angeles that I almost forgot about! Having children fries your brain. Exciting news – my sister, niece + mom are coming up to Vancouver for a visit at the end of July!!! Hoooray for me!!! Hopefully I’ll be able to manage to squeeze in another post before then! Thanks for reading!
