I had the best week! Thanks to my super awesome sister-in-law, who babysat my kids for three days, I was able to go on a trip to Ventura, CA. My husband travels there all the time for work, so I decided to tag along. There were a lot of firsts on this trip. My first sushi restaurant. I had oysters, clam, eel, and lots fish. My first exploring on my own, which is a super big deal for me. I drove a rental car with a GPS system and found my way to three fabric stores, the Ronald Reagan Memorial Library, Ventura Pier and Santa Barbara Pier. I also played on the beach and shopped. So much fun!
I walked the harbor and ate at two restaurants overlooking this:
I watched the beach turn from this:
I saw this:
Yes, that’s the retired Airforce One. I got to walk through it head to tail!
And I shopped here…… (among many other places)
Did I mention how much fun I had?? Now, it’s back to real life again. Sigh!
Isn’t it funny that the biggest reason I wanted to leave was to get a break from the kids, but they are what I missed most when I was gone?
