Back where I come from.....

Hey everyone! Sorry I've been a bit absent lately. We left Monday for California and are back in our hometown visiting with family and friends. We had a great trip out here. Julianne did great on the plane ride (it is so worth buying that extra seat)! This week we've been hanging out with my family and seeing some friends. I had dinner last night with some girlfriends and got to meet two new friends that I have come to know through the blog world. It's so fun to meet blog friends in person. I got to meet this lovely lady and this lovely lady as well as see three of my old friends. And by old, I don't mean they are old....I just mean we go way back! :)

This morning we are getting ready to head down to San Diego for the weekend. Shaun's cousin is getting married on Sunday so my parents are coming with us so that they can watch Julianne for us while we attend the wedding. There is just no way that we could (or should) take her to a wedding. The girl doesn't stop for a second and also doesn't seem to ever want to stop talking. So she will hang out with my parents while we go to the wedding Sunday afternoon. We are heading down to San Diego today and will be meeting up with my college roommate and her husband for dinner. They are dear friends of ours and I'm so excited to see them. Tomorrow we will be taking Julianne to Sea World with both my parents and Shaun's parents. She's never had the opportunity to spend the day with both sets of her grandparents together so it should be a fun day! She is really into fish right now so we think she will love it! We'll be going to the wedding on Sunday and then heading back here to Bakersfield on Monday. We'll stay here and spend Thanksgiving with my family and head home Friday. It's been a great trip so far and I just hope that my tired, very pregnant body can keep going through all of these activities.

I hope you all have a great weekend and a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family! I'll be back soon with pictures from our adventures.
