Hello, hello! Well it’s been two weeks without a blog post and it has felt like a marathon of two weeks! Things are a little crazy, Ryan is in Minnesota and will be for another week doing a final cram session for the bar which is the last week of February. Ryan and I are both putting our best effort into each of our respective responsibilities, him with studying and I with taking care of the kids alone. Currently all the boys and I are sick with some bad colds now. I took Finn to the doctor on Saturday and he got an antibiotic and I am taking Royal back this afternoon. Emotionally I have really started hitting a wall, thankfully my parents came into town this weekend and we got to just spend some quality time together. Physically it may be more tiring because we do more in a day than we usually would, but emotionally a little socialization and some extra eyes on my kids is all the difference.
My parents got here Thursday and we went to Crystal Cove for a few days and went to this beach here – next to Balboa yesterday. The magic that happens at the beach, the boys need very little entertaining at the beach and I can just relax it’s so nice.
This weekend was crazy around here with the holiday. So many extra people in town. The boys and I usually spend a lot of time at the beach during the week but I try and avoid busier places on the weekend. This was on a weekend with 80 degree weather – one of the busier days at the beach that you would ever have around here and we found a small quiet public beach and nearly had this place to ourselves. I am definitely going to try and keep this place a secret. It’s great! I am not anti social, but I just love finding places where there just aren’t a lot of people.
