We decided it was time for a trip out to California to visit Gary’s family since they weren’t going to be able to come out to Florida to visit before the baby came. Gary’s family lives in the Riverside area (Perris/Mead Valley) to be exact, so we got a chance to catch up and see everyone for a few days which was very nice.
This was actually a surprise for Gary’s mom who didn’t know we were coming (we’ve actually surprised her a couple times by coming into town). I don’t know if we’ll be able to surprise her much after this, she’ll probably be expecting it!
While there we also got to catch up with Gary’s friends from high school, Chris and Katie who just had their 2nd kiddo (Adam) who is little brother to Josh (3yrs). Josh is hilarious and definitely has the personality of a 15 year old. We got to see their new house that’s being built, Katie and I got a pedicure, and we had a delicious home cooked meal at their place.
I also got to catch up with one of my oldest and dearest friends Jason. We had a deeeelish brunch at the Cheesecake Factory and caught up on things. We don’t get to talk as much lately, but he’ll always be a very good friend. As a plug for J, he’s also a great photographer…so check out his website!
