We went on vacation. There was good times and VERY bad times.
Good times: Sonyo’s graduation: It was on May 26th. It was actually kind of cold there. I was so proud of Sonyo. She has worked so hard to get where she is today. She is actually trying to do what she loves: to write. I can’t wait to see what happens with her career from here. We ate at Mimi’s cafe after. K.C. Ordered a medium rare burger as he usually does, but I will tell you more about that in the bad news.
Disneyland: We had tons of fun. K.C. is usually not happy with the “baby” rides, but he was actually really good this trip. He let us do whatever we wanted to. It was a lot of fun. It wasn’t that crowded either.
The beach: so relaxing. I could have stayed out there all day except Xayla was cranky because she did not sleep well the night before. That is in the bad news as well. Xayla got to use sand toys for once. She thought that was neat.
Angel’s games: Very fun. The kids actually did OK. There was a family area where there was face painting and Ronald McDonald. It was really hot one of the days, that was the only bad thing.
Bad news: On Friday night, we were at Disneyland and K.C. started to not feel well. So, we left earlier than I would have liked to. As soon as we got in the hotel, he started throwing up. He threw up all night long until about 4:00 a.m. Xayla kept crying because it scared her. She threw up twice that night as well, and both of them had “the runs”. It was terrible. I was trying to take care of Xayla and comfort K.C. Luckily, Kobi still slept well. It was probably from the meat at Mimi’s. K.C. was the only one who ate it. Xayla has had diarrhea for several days prior, I just think she had a virus that caused her to start throwing up. I am glad that is over with!
Then, at the beach K.C. got stung by a bee. No fun.
Overall, we did not let the bad things bother our family. We still had a blast, and we got to spend quality time together. Xayla was cranky on the car rides. It is hard to explain to her that we can’t let her out of her car seat. We give her toys, snacks, Kobi’s gameboy, play a movie, she still cried. Any other suggestions for keeping a child calm on car rides?
That’s about it for now! I am going to hang out with Michelle later today. All of our family went out of town, so Michelle so kindly let us barge in at her house for a swim :). It will be fun. I love catching up on things. Xayla is older now as well, and she can actually play with Avery.
