I'm going down to Cali.....

Well, we are actually back from Cali and have been for a few weeks, but I'm just now getting around to posting pics!! I was really lookin forward to this trip because I haven't had a real vacation with my kids since their dad and I divorced 7 years ago. The interesting part about this was that their dad, (my ex) invited me to go with them. I thought, eh what the hey. We get along better now than we ever have and it would be nice for us all to go on a fun vacation together as a family. SO we did!!! And, get this...........we had fun!!! My ex and I were even talking about how nice it was that we could get along well enough to do this, and it was the second vacation we had ever taken where we didn't fight!! Awesome!! So we loaded up and headed out from Vegas. Our destination Knotts Berry Farm, Downtown Disney, and the beach!

We went to Crescent Bay which is in Laguna, I love that place.........it is so very cool. The shopping is fantastic and the shops are fun. We went to the Candy Baron, check that out!! Rows of barrels filled with candy..........all kinds of salt water taffy, hard candy, licorice, candy from when I was a kid.....it's really cool and brought back some fun memories. Remember the wax bottles that were filled with colored liquid that you could just chew for......well not for very long before ya spit it out, but that's not the point! They had snaps, razzles, foot high pez dispensers, you name it, they had it. It seriously is a super cool place. We ended up spending about $35....just on candy. HOLY COW!!

Ashlie, always ready for pictures, me and my kids, me and Jordan, dinner at the Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney.
Me and Ash at Knotts, and Logan, Ashlie's pride and joy!
We had such a good time, ate good food, laughed so hard we cried, and just enjoyed spending time together.. I hope that this is something we will be able to continue doing, as it is a blessing to spend time with my children and for them to spend fun times with both their parents!


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. And the candy store sounds amazing (that's my sweet tooth talking!).

  2. Hey, love the pics of my sis and her amazing chilins. Wish my family was taking a trip to Cali. That trip was cancelled 6 years ago by our move to Houston. At least we are now enjoying living in a beautiful mountain valley in Utah now, with a lake, ski resorts, and a glorious year round view. Even if we aren't on vacation, at least we live somewhere other people come to enjou theirs!! Plus it never feels crowded. Love it here!!
