A Little Fun in Ventura Beach

It's so good to be home!  Mostly, because I got sick a week ago and suffered through that last week.  It's so much better to be sick in your own home with your own bed! Do you want to know how sick I am?  (pausing...for How Sick Are You Connie?) I'm so sick....that I've had 5 beautiful chocolate truffles in my possession for a week and I have not eaten them.  I'm so sick that I didn't drink the 4 bottles of wine that my father in law bought for me.  I'm so sick that I haven't had a cup of coffee in 3 days! Also...I was at my in laws for 2 days and he expected me to drink 4 bottles of wine?  Okay then.

Yesterday, I sat around coughing and peeing my pajamas and reflected on the trip.  I also made a Apple photo book on my computer...can't wait to see it!  It felt like a dream come true to take this trip.  It was a last minute decision when iKeith actually did get a ticket to WWDC (they sold out in 2.5 minutes) and the only reason we tried is because his company would pay for the ticket.  The Golden Ticket!  There wasn't any other way we could afford for him to go.

Then we decided that we would all go and we'd drive (I love a good road trip) and we'd visit Keith's parents.  Keith's brother and folks decided to buy us airline and train tickets and also took us to Ventura Beach for two days. It was so kind of them to make this trip happen for us!

Next week, I'm going to tell you more about our trip and the San Francisco City Pass that we used.  But today, I'm going to share a moment of fun that we had at Ventura Beach!  We had just had a great meal at Brophy Brothers (watch my food blog for more about that) and decided to walk over to an ice cream store.  We found these funny cut outs and started snapping pictures of each other!  So Fun!

Keith was such a good sport when I said....let's switch holes!  Through clenched teeth he said....this is going on your blog isn't it?  Well...yes, it is darling!

We played in the sand a little bit before sun set and played in the water as the tide came in.  Alex, Keith and Uncle Andrew built a sandcastle and I chased a crab around.  I posted some videos on vine.


I waited and waited for the sun to slip behind the mountains but it just sat there and I had to pee so we left, this is the closest I got to a sun set on the beach!

I can't wait to tell you more!


  1. Oh, coughing and peeing, the joys of having given birth....Love all of the cutout pics!

  2. my son was fascinated by the crab video and yep coughing/peeing is a sign of mother hood

  3. I loved following your vacation on Instagram! You guys have fun no matter where you go!

  4. Loved the whole report but favorite part was the honesty of "I had to pee so we left, this is the closest I got to a sun set on the beach!" Cracked me the heck up. Also? So could have been me. Too sick to eat truffles and drink coffee? Yowza -- poor you! I'd need to be on a breathing tube to forego chocolate and coffee.

  5. Love those pictures, so much fun!! So sorry you were so sick. What a bummer :( I hope you are feeling better now.

  6. Keith has a pretty nice mermaid rack! I love that picture!! :o)

    So sorry you're sick. There is definitely nothing worse than being sick on vacation. :o(


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
