Family vacation

My DH finally was able to quit his job of 11 years and move over to a new company. YAHOO!!! He was able to take 2 weeks off in between jobs. The first week we planned a family vacation. Here was our vacation journal:

1. Spent the one night in Blythe, CA Full hook ups, due to the heat

2. Travelled across Los Angels to arrive in Carpinteria, CA. Here we stayed at the state park, for 3 nights. Dry camping. However it was a record breaking heat wave of 105 degrees on the beach. Loved the town of Carpinteria!!! We were about 400 feet from the ocean and within walking distance of the downtown area. We ate Thai, Indian and Japanese food. There were day trips up to Santa Barbara.

3. Traveled up North to Morro Bay. We also stayed at the state park,for 2 days, with full hook ups. With only a quick drive into the downtown area and to Morro Bay rock, it was amazing site to be seen. There was a day trip to San Luis Obispo, for the huge farmers market and famous gum alley.

4. Finally traveled towards home across the desert this time and through Palm Spring for only one night, with full hook ups. We needed the hook ups due to the heat. Then the next morning off to Phoenix.

It was an amazing family vacation. The girls did an amazing job with all the traveling and the homework that was necessary to be out of school. Such great memories were made on this trip!

DH#1 was trying to catch a squirrel. The squirrel fell for the trap but manage to get away.
