It wasn't super-warm while we were there, but, luckily, we came for the company, not the weather.
Saturday morning we went to the beach. Ellie was so excited to finally get to wear her PEAR SWIMSUIT!!!
Caroline seemed to enjoy having her feet in the water, so I changed her into her suit and plopped her in the sand.
|Caroline's first wave crash - I picked her up right after, don't worry.|
After a long nap back at Grandma's, we dyed Easter eggs.
We visited the playground across the street during Caroline's morning nap. There was some fishing off the dock, and, an egg hunt in the afternoon (Yes, I changed them back into their dresses for the egg hunt and pictures). In the evening, once the clouds finally broke, we had a quick visit to Venice Beach.
We arrived home in time for our final Grandma Prann dinner of the trip.
No one in my family will be surprised, but Grandma prepared a leg of lamb, roasted potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, asparagus, roasted zucchini and summer squash - all without seeming to set foot in the kitchen. For dessert there was berry pie a la mode. Best cook in the world, hands down.
Monday morning we had our last morning at Grandma's and decided against lunch at Sharky's because the weather was still a bit yucky, and we'd rather stay at home and have more time to chat.
We left after lunch and on our way up the coast, stopped at Umpah and Jan's living community so that Caroline could meet another one of her great-grandparents. Ellie took some time to warm up to Umpah and Jan, but our CHC was happy to be held by CHC, Jr.
The drive home was LOOONG - there's really no good time to drive around Atlanta, and we were stuck in several other traffic jams secondary to construction, rain, wrecks, and whatever is always happening on Jellico Mtn to make it a thirty-minute delay. But we all made it home and were happy to have made the trip.
