hello! we are in california this week spending time with family! i can’t even begin to express how much i loved feeling that warm sun on my face today when we went to the pool. oh my goodness, how good it felt. i almost forgot what sunshine felt like entirely with all those crazy dropping temperatures and snowstorms we’ve had the past few months back east. i don’t even care if i end up with 500 new freckles on my overly freckled face after this trip… i need you in my life this week, sunshine. and i love you.
it’s great to see family, too. we get to spend time with both josh’s and my family while we’re out west this trip and i’m really looking forward to it. we spent several hours in the car today driving with the kids and i was so impressed with how well they did! (samson hates carseats. HATES.) i know many people often think life in nyc with kids must be difficult but i swear it’s a piece of cake compared to driving anywhere with my child in a carseat. maybe it’s just my kids (err, samson) but man, i’ll carry my stroller up and down subway steps or push it while walking miles and miles around the city over the whole car and carseat situation any day. but anyway, they did well today so maybe we’ve reached a milestone. i was even able to read aloud a book for myself and josh while he drove and both kids played contently in their seats behind us. it was weird. and incredible.
