Just got back from a fun weekend spent in Anaheim at the NAFEM convention with the Farleys. While the boys worked the convention, Kimi and I spent time shopping and beaching. We laughed a lot and solved our kids issues and just had a great time with the Farleys.
We went to three different beaches three different days and enjoyed the sunshine, sand and ocean waves while we read books and relaxed. There is something rejuvenating about my toes in the sand, and the sound of the ocean in my ears, drowning out everything else-- and sun on my face, that I just can't get enough of.
We ate way too much because that's what Bob does on vacation. He never wants to miss a meal. So Little Sheep Hot Pot, Samborosa Mexican food, and awesome ribs at Banderas. Delicious.
We did Initiatories at the Newport Beach Temple. This is a gorgeous spanish style architecture temple. The workers were so kind and helpful and it was a wonderful way to spend a few hours. Wayne was told by one of the workers that "perhaps" he has the best head of hair this guy had every seen.
We had fun exploring the Orange County Swap meet and flea market. The farmers market part was full of cheap fruit and veggies, so many tasting tables of bagels, tarts, cookies, salsa, hummus... once again, eating our way through the day. We loved finding the "worlds best' this or that.
It was an all around good get away. Wayne said his work meetings at NAFEM went well so hopefully new business will come out of it too.
