First, a happy pic of the birthday dinner from last night! Just as I suspected, I had too much fun!
But, for today, I am thankful to have spent the early afternoon with my parents and the kids. We went to a small grove of Eucalyptus trees where, during the months November-February, monarch butterflies gather by the thousands. Of course, it’s March, so minus a few stragglers, there were no butterflies. But it was a beautiful walk to the beach, and the weather was beautiful. The coast of California is beautiful no matter what time of the year, but after a few weeks of on-again, off-again rain, today it was particularly spectacular.
