We lived in Southern California for 2 years...almost 9 years ago. WOW!! It's been along time. While in Cali, for the reception, we had to drive down memory lane. Before moving there, I always pictured it looking like the picture below, streets lined with palm trees. Not many of the streets are. But this one is and this is the street Mason was born on. When I was going to my appointments I always loved the look of all these palm trees. I wanted to get a picture. We moved when Mason was 10 months old and I never got a picture. This time I made sure to get many pictures. Mason has always asked where he was born and was excited to finally to see. When the moment arrived he really didn't care. So I went down memory lane and enjoyed every moment of it.
We also went past our old neighborhood. This the elementary school that McKinzie and Bailee attended. It is much smaller than I remember.
Up the street from our house is a nature center. The two girls would go there all the time with some neighbor girls.
It really was a great day. The memories, climbing the "mountain", spending time together and in no rush what so ever.
This trip really made me miss California. If we could have the same lifestyle there that we have here (size of home, cost of living...) I would move back in a heartbeat!
