David and I just took a trip to Monterey, California for an educational conference with the high school. In reality, it was a mini-vacation without our children, which most of you know was very painful for me!

We had a great time overall! Our travel there and back was eventful and tiring due to layovers and stops. And, it didn't help my nerves that the second day we were there, Canadian Geese brought down a plane in the Hudson River. We went to San Francisco for two days, did the 17-mile drive (which was breathtakingly beautiful), ate a lot of good food, checked out a British Pub and oh yeah, David attended a LITTLE bit of the conference!

The weather was perfect! It was in the 70's during the day and 40's at night.... while our children were freezing in Florida. We enjoyed the time, but missed them so much. Isaac punished me for a week for leaving him, but Layla wasn't ready to come home!
