Road Trippin'

We're finally home! The past week and a half has been full of sunshine, swimming, friends, fun and quite a few hours in the car! Last Sunday (Mother's Day :) ) we drove down to Palm Springs with my mom. We spent a few days there enjoying the warm sun and some quality time a the pool. We were lucky with the weather- it was in the upper 70's to mid 80's while we were there. Grayson, as usual, loved the pool. He's showing himself to be a true Pisces and loves being in the water, whether it's the bath or the pool.

Swimming with Dad and Mimi.

Cruisin' the pool with Mimi.

Enjoying the water with Dad. Matt had to borrow my mom's hat to keep the sun off of Grayson. I'm sure it's a look he never thought he'd sport at the pool :)

Passed out after all that swimming!

We came home from Palm Springs on Thursday and Friday we got back in the car and headed up to Healdsburg (wine country) with Sarah and Taylor to see Jackopierce. Jackopierce is a band that Matt and I both love and listened to A LOT of in college. We got an email when I was a few months pregnant about this small concert at the C. Donatello winery and decided that we just had to go and we'd figure out logistics when the time got closer. Sarah and Taylor babysat while Matt and I had a nice 'date night' at the concert. We're so lucky to have so many great friends, like Sarah and Taylor, who love Grayson and jump at the chance to watch him for a few hours.

Looking like such a big boy sitting up on the couch!

Sarah noticed this funny picture. He has so much hair it's all you can see when he's in his bed!

C. Donatello winery- concert venue.

Grapes as far as you can see!

Our bottle of wine for dinner and our Jackopierce bottle!

On our way home from Healdsburg we stopped in Davis to look at a rental house. It's a nice little house close to campus and downtown Davis. I had never been to Davis so it was nice to see the town. It's definitely going to be a bit of a change living in a college town after being in Carmel for two years but it should be fun! It's nice to have found a house and see our plans for the next few years of our lives start to fall into place.

That's all for now. We've enjoyed our time on the road but it's nice to be home! Now we're looking forward to our trip out to Oklahoma and Denver in a few weeks!
