Ruby and I just got back from a week in California--a week of heaven, more like. My home town is so gorgeous. I just can't get enough of the Bay Area. When we drove in and saw the green hills, Christy and Danny and I freaked out with how beautiful it is. Any time I walked out of my house, I breathed in the air and had to close my eyes because it was so delicious. What is it about the air that is so different and wonderful there? I really like my home in Springville, but it just can't compete with California.
This week I got to spend a lot of time with my grandma, which is always one of my hopes for time spent at home. I played lots of games with my sisters and bro-in-law. I hugged and kissed the twins a lot, even though I can do that here in Utah too. I watched Doctor Who with Katy--score! I went to Katy's singles ward, which is quite an experience when you have a rambunctious toddler who was missing her nap--remember how silent singles wards are in Sacrament Meeting? Yikes.
Christy and Danny took Ruby and their girls to the park by my house while I was at home taking a looong nap , still recovering from our drive. (You would think that driving for 12 hours with 4 kids would be hard, but that wasn't our problem. RUBY was. The Leininger girls were angels.) Chris took some cute pictures.
Sad I missed out on that fun--it was the only nice day the whole week! But California rain is different from Utah rain somehow, much more pleasant, so I didn't really mind.
It was so fun to be home. Ruby is obsessed with my parents--she didn't want me the entire time we were there. It would have been way sadder to leave if Mom's trip here for Easter wasn't already on the calendar!
