off we go...

We are about to embark on a family vacation. We didn't do this last year, so I'm very much looking forward to this one. I'm only hoping we can afford it. First stop is Apple Hill, then San Francisco and finally down to my hometown for some camping. I'll update on how everything goes after it's all been done.

We were hoping to stop by the Monterey Bay Aquarium again on this trip (we went for a few hours over winter break), but what with the fires and smoke, that's not happening. Anyone know anything interesting to do in Fresno?

Speaking of the smoke, our sky is pretty bad again today. It cleared up a bit for a couple of days, but today we had the acrid smell and smoggy air again (although, I know it's nothing compared to what Californians are experiencing). We still took Pic to the pool a bit today and then we went for a walk to the park. While we were in the pool, I asked Pic if she wanted to bring her inflatable pool toy with us when we go camping. She thought for a moment and asked me, "Is there water at camping?" Sometimes, I think I'll be sad when her English is more "correct." I answered, "Yes, there is a lake." "I don't like the lake," she returned. After I told her the lake was like a humongous swimming pool, though, she seemed much more interested in it.

I'm especially looking forward to camping because s'mores make me ridiculously happy. I've been eating my s'mores with dark chocolate for a while now, but I'm looking forward to another small twist. Dark chocolate, toasted marshmallows and cinnamon graham crackers. Mmm. Must devour s'mores soon.

For the time being, I need to print out my calendar for my summer work, continue to do the laundry and wash the dishes. Fun, fun stuff.

Hooray for camping! Have fun! Oh, and thanks for the trailer. It was much better than pushing the jogger.
