Our California family trip (welcome back!)
How has your summer been so far? In the past 10 days, we missed you and we are glad to catch up with you! Tomorrow we will start the redesign (we can’t wait to share it with you), and I’m glad we can visit relatives in California. Here are some travel photos, if you want to see…
Family travel always has its ups and downs (remember This hilarious article?), but now that the children have grown up, traveling has become much easier. First, we drove to Sonoma. I couldn’t believe the beauty of driving through the vineyard, I kept telling everyone to pinch themselves. “I think we are Parent trap,” Toby said respectfully.
We ended up in a routine: every morning, when other adults were sleeping or working, the boys and I would wake up, eat breakfast, and go immediately Train city, This is a lovely amusement park with six rides surrounded by trees. You can also take a 20-minute train ride, which will stop midway so you can feed goats and alpacas. The boys liked it very much and we went there for four consecutive days. (I will watch them and listen to podcasts on the shady bench:)
In the afternoon, we will swim and relax at home.One day, my dad, my sister and Alex went to a wine tasting, but the boys watched a movie and I dozed off on the sofa because sometimes Doing nothing is the best,Do not you think so?
My sister also made this delicious pasta based on my friend’s recipe GiselaThis is: “Cook frozen peas separately. Cook pasta separately. Scrape a bunch of Parmesan cheese in a large pan, sauté garlic, add sliced asparagus, salted asparagus, and cook until the asparagus is half cooked (bright green but not yet chewed) Add enough heavy cream to cover the asparagus, simmer until the asparagus is cooked through, add the peas. Turn off the heat, then add the Parmesan cheese. Stir until the Parmesan cheese melts. Pour the pasta into the sauce.” eat.
After three nights in Sonoma, we said goodbye to my father and sister and drove along the coast to Mendocino.We stayed in a hotel for two nights but I actually recommend staying Airbnb in the village Because it is so charming, so misty, so primitive.
One morning, We rented a canoe And paddling across the river. We saw the seals, which lasted for an hour and a half!
We ended our trip in San Francisco.
One night, Alex took the boys to a Giants game…
…When I walk around, have lunch with my friends Tatar Factory, Peek at the cute shop, and swallow pies Greek frozen yogurt. This is a pleasure Have some time to travel alone, If you can manage to sneak away!
Finally, this is Anton who walked home from Dolores Park: “Look, I’m mom!” (It’s done.)
Ah, California, thank you for having us! We love you! What are you up to lately? How has your summer been so far? I want to catch up…xo
