Grant and I went to California from July 7 to 13, 2009, and had a fabulous time! I love California and miss it whenever I'm away. I used to spend time there nearly every summer growing up since my grandparents lived in Sierra Madre before they died, as well as aunts, uncles, and cousins. My mom lived there until, for some reason unknown to me, moved to the great white north. Now I'm stuck here. Luckily, little Grant and I got a bit of an escape in our week long holiday.
We stayed with my aunt and uncle, Alex and Bryant, and their son, Cader. Grant got to meet them, as well as my big sister Meg, who lives in Singapore. Cader even got to be the "big" cousin for once!
We had a very nice time bumming around, reading Harry Potter, shopping, eating out, and generally enjoying July in Southern California. I'm pretty sure one of the highlights of Grant's trip was our big purchase, a new stroller, second only to getting to meet Auntie Megan.
She even bought him a new swimsuit with rash guard - cutest thing ever!
Thanks to Megan, Alex, and Bryant for the best week all year!
