From San Diego, we started heading north. I carefully timed our departure (using the Google Maps traffic predictor--so cool!) and only ran into one semi-congested area. Phew!
The Los Angeles Temple was HUGE! For some reason, it never looked that big in pictures, but in real life . . . wowzers.
I needed to get away from my family for a few minutes--we were in close quarters for a long time without access to our usual coping methods. We decided to walk around the temple grounds. They went one way, I went the other. It was a nice and quiet 15 minutes; that's all I needed.
On our way up the coast, we stopped in at our old neighbor's place. We had adjoining backyards, but a year ago, we moved away within a week of each other.
They fed us a wonderful, home cooked meal, let the kids play and even let me run a load of wash. It was a perfect way to spend an evening.
Remember the boy my girl wants to marry? Yep, this is he.
That union would be okay by me . . . and wouldn't this be a cute picture on the greeting table? :)
