This year we decided to take a trip back home to visit, and since Rae hasn’t been back since she was 4 months old, everyone could get a chance to bond with her, now at age 2-1/2. We started off our trip at Disneyland for 3 days and then continued on to Las Vegas for the duration. Now that my family has relocated to Las Vegas, it gave us a chance to explore the suburbs of Vegas and get an idea of how the other half lives (ha-ha).
We took a week off to go up to the snow at South Lake Tahoe, visit with friends and play in the snow – Rae really loved getting into the snow! Even I have missed it! Birdie and I took one weekend to fly up to Portland and stay for a weekend, dine, shop and visit with friends. I hadn’t been to Portland before and I really enjoyed going to ‘food truck row’ to try all the wonderful food! It rained every second we were in Oregon but I really enjoyed the experience. It’s somewhere I will love to continue visiting, but with the rain, I don’t think I could ever live there! Who am I kidding, I’m never leaving Melbourne!
We finished off the trip, with a trip up and down California visiting from Sacramento to Petaluma, Escondido and then San Diego before we headed back. I don’t think we will be back again until 2018 – when we will be visiting to attend my 30-year high school reunion… 30-years, I can’t believe it! See you then.
