It Does Rain in SoCal.

Tony! Toni! Tone!  I loved you in 1990.

You and your one hit.  And the exclamation marks in your name(s).

But you lie.  And you lie HARD.

It DOES rain in Southern California.

It rains alot.

Each October, Nan and Pops spend a week at their Newport time share.

And we always crash the party.  This year it was a rainy, cloudy, overcast party.

But still a super fun party.

Dave and Kayla flew down later in the week, thanks to work and school.

Which meant 3 days of ridiculous indoor spoiling for Queen Ashlyn.

Shopping at the Disney store.  Shopping at the train store.  Merry-go-round at South Coast Plaza.  Over and over again.

Bottomless Ruby's shakes.  Ice cream for breakfast.  Pops even let her drive.

The skies cleared just in time for our trip to the Happy Place on Friday.  Which was great news.  Because those rainy weather theme park panchos are embarrassing.  And should be banned from the planet.

The day went exactly as I expected.  Kayla found the Disneyland Petting Zoo (which I didn't even know existed) and Ashlyn was afraid of anything that moved or waved or even hinted at invading her personal space.  Until Minnie Mouse brought her a tray of baked goods from Goofy's Kitchen and all was well.

Another fabulous trip, yucky weather and all.  Thanks Mom and Dad!


  1. My 2 fav pics: the one of your mom signing to Ashlyn (I believe she is saying, 'thank you') and the one of the girls holding hands. Oh! Also the plate of desserts looks AMAZING. :)
