This post is a short one, because I am so behind in my writing! This summer is going by much to fast and I’ve got lots of good travel to get to. Before getting to the good stuff, here’s a warm up from April.
My parents drove up from San Diego to watch Claire while Randy and I attended my co-worker’s wedding. The wedding was at Castle Green (A 1920’s style hotel where the mid-west and east-coast wealth vacations for some California sunshine).
The day after the wedding, we decided to visit the Huntington Gardens just down the street from our house. We’ve lived walking distance to the gardens for almost three years now and its taken us this long to pay a visit. Overall, I think living so close, it is wise to buy an annual pass. There is WAY too much to see in one day. Especially when this day in April happened to be the first hot (above 85 degrees) day of the year. I’m normally a cold-blooded person. When people are shedding layers, I’m still the one wearing a cardigan. Well, not anymore. I swear, after having a baby, or maybe its nursing a baby, my body temperature is wildy different. I sweat when it’s 69 degrees and sunny. So 86 degrees was a bit torturous. I think my next visit will be in December.
The museums were closed for renovation during our hot spring visit, so there wasn’t any air conditioning to escape to. We saw the Chinese and Japanese Gardens, the Shakespearean rose garden, the duck pond, and for some reason wondered into the heat of the desert garden. Now drenched enough to water a cactus, it was time to go home.
