Emily’s Blog: Our Train Trip (highs and lows), A Spring Break Craft and Cooking!

 

Hello there! I hope you all are having a nice spring. Isn’t it just beautiful? Only problem is weeds!  Oh my gosh!  I have weeds galore because of all the rain – Like we’re talking about 5-foot tall big boys! Yikes! I started tackling it last weekend. A little at a time, I guess, right?

When was/is your spring break?  It’s silly the way they are different depending on schools. Anyways…Reed’s was last week.  We decided to take a short spring break vacay leaving Friday morning and coming home Saturday afternoon…told ya it was short 🙂  We booked a train trip up north to San Juan Capistrano to then stay the day and night in Dana Point.

Here we are before leaving Santa Fe Depot. Look at Reed’s cute outfit he chose for the train!

Now for a low.  This photo below was taken about 5 minutes before we stopped at the Solana Beach stop to find out that there was a fatality on the tracks in Oceanside and our train was delayed hours!  We decided that was too long to sit on the train with Reed, so we got off and grabbed a Lyft.  It was actually pretty reasonable.  $79 bucks.  Well worth it for the sake of our sanity!  But the sanity didn’t last long.  Reed was extra tricky on this trip.  Sometimes I don’t know if he’s getting better or worse.  It’s so tough. We started a new occupational therapy last week. My poor baby boy.  I would really like a good loving therapist for him too.  If you know one, let me know pretty please.

We stopped at the Zoomars Petting Zoo in San Juan Capistrano. San Juan Capistrano is the cutest! We loved it.

There were tracks right next to our hotel!  Reed loved it.

We decided to do something Jeff and Laura always warned me never to do…Take a family 4 person bike.  They also warned never to do those pedal boats too! hehe.  They said that you will be over in about 5 minutes and your legs will burn – True and true.

Reed and I started making these little fairy gardens over break.  It was SO FUN! We didn’t buy anything.  Just used stuff from the house and yard.  It is so cute! I later replaced the Pacifico bottle cap table because Robert told me it was tacky. (I thought it was cute!)

Fnally…Have you tried that idea/recipe I told you about a while ago where you make a black bean/veggie soup with all the veggies in your house?  It’s so good  I am addicted!  4 1 Emilys Blog: Our Train Trip (highs and lows), A Spring Break Craft and Cooking!
