From San Diego to Holiday Pics

I need to start off with an apology as I didn't stick to my blogging days over the holidays. I believe I missed Wednesday and Friday. I'm actually going to change the schedule around and blog on Tuesday and Fridays.
The days we decided to go to California was also the day we took the Santa Train to go see Santa. We are personally not very big into Santa, but Toddler still knew who he was and was quite excited to see him in person (we've watched a few movies with him). While we were there it started to snow which added to the little adventure more then we could have imagined. Toddler was also very excited to meet the conductor of the train. The best part was enjoying the snow and then packing up and leaving for sunshine. I'll be thinking of a winter home in CA for the future. 

And now back to the last images from our California trip with the big redwoods. I've fallen in love with those woods. They are just so impressive  and massive! I also have to brag on Toddler for just a moment because he did so well on this trip! The last 8 hours on our way home he spent without any entertainment as the cord to our Kindle broke and it lost its charge. We were very proud of our little road trip trooper!

For Christmas we gave Toddler a read bike with training wheels. It's a tad too big for him, but we believe he'll grow into it pretty quick. He still can get on it and ride, its just a little hard sometimes. We've only been out to ride it once, but on the second time he has mastered the breaks. It's so much easier to go on walks as it doesn't take us hours anymore. Excited for all of us to get on our bikes this summer and go for rides. (Hoping this text will post as I'm having some issues with Blogger today!)

Coastal Highway: A Family Portrait

We are currently in a hotel room in the city of Garberville, CA near the redwood forest. We got into the room about 40 minutes ago. I hoped onto the computer as soon as I could so that I can get Friday's post out to you.

The pictures that you'll see in this post are mostly pictures of us with half of them on self-timer. The more beautiful and scenic images you'll have to wait till I post on The Inspired Blog. I have the perfect plan for a gorgeous post, but I can't reveal it in case it doesn't pan out. 

Tomorrow we plan on hanging out and exploring the redwood forest before we head back home for the night. I've been wanted to explore that forest for almost 4 years now and am so excited to finally have the chance to do it! The last serval days have been pretty amazing and great fun although the last serval hours to the hotel was rough as there were many curves in the road with strong wind and rain. We actually were lucky because we decided to take hwy 1 & 101 home unlike my aunt and uncle who then had to back-trek from I-5 due to snow closer. 

By the time we reach home Christmas will be upon us faster then we can wrap all the presents even though mine are all unwrapped already. Anyway, here are the pictures from the last two days and I may or may not come back earlier then Wednesday with a follow-up post and a post about the Christmas train I forgot to do.

PS. Too tired to proofread, might do it later.
