A Weekend Away

It doesn't happen often, but we decided to get away on Saturday and Sunday. We went over to Atascadero and Morro Bay. We went to the zoo in Atascadero, very cute and perfect for our little people. And then we went to the beach looking for tidepools. We had a great time, but realized why we probably don't do more of this, it's a lot of work going on vacation with little kids! My favorite part was the zoo, we got their in the morning on Sunday and the animals were being very active, so we got to see monkeys swinging, a fox, sheep, llamas, an emu, and even a tiger. The tiger was so neat. He was resting in the back, but as soon as we got their he moved right up front for the kids to get a good look at.

Mia loved the water at the ocean, even if it was frigid cold, she wanted to keep getting wet. Calvin loved the sand, he started digging in it right away, as if he'd already been to the beach and knew exactly what to do.

This morning I took Mia to LA for our final opthamology opinion. The best part was that Nana stayed home with Calvin, so it was just Mia and I. It was so nice not to be distracted by him at her appointment and he got plenty of playing time with Nana at home, it worked out great. This eye doctor said that he would not do any surgery on her eyes right now, either. He mentioned how sometimes with craniosynostosis, the eye orbits aren't quite right and that causes the eyes to turn out when looking upward. This is the second time we've heard that idea. We just feel very good about waiting on surgery right now.

Oh, I miss the ocean so much! It looks like everybody had a good time. The first time Nate went to the beach, he didn't care much for the water. Good to hear that Mia won't be having surgery any time soon!
