We woke up this morning, up in Los Angeles, to the sounds of two little boys running around having a great time. It is such an amazing contrast to our two granddaughters, and we love every moment of it. Then, again, boys are supposed to be different from girls and it all definitely shows, as they continue to grow. We really do enjoy having all the time we do with the girls, but it sure would be nice to have more time with Dylan and Ethan. Perhaps, once we move up to Fallbrook it will be a little easier to spend time with them.
David made breakfast this morning, with the help of Miriam and the boys. David made scratch pancakes, with both blue berries or strawberries, and some times a mix of the two. They were really good, and I probably ate more than I should have. We had planned on leaving late morning and in hind sight we might have been able to stay a little longer, but we don't like leaving Jason on his own for too long, especially with a new puppy. We finished breakfast, packed and out the door by 09:45. We got traveling down the road and well on our way when David called. We had left a bag at the house, so we turned around and went back. Traffic was wonderfully lite, so it took up a little less time than it could have, and we were back at the house by 10:30. Again, we were back out the door and on our way, only this time it was closer to 10:45 (what was that about leaving later in the morning?). The traffic was a little heavier this time, but still moved pretty well, and we made some pretty reasonable time.
We would have gotten home by about 14:00 (2pm) except that we decided to stop by the new house, and see the progress. Actually, we had called Jason and asked how he was doing and determined we had the time to take a look, since it was going to be a fast visit. As it was, we got home to San Diego just before 15:00 (3pm). There were some flowers sitting on the table for Linda's Mother's Day, and they looked very nice. Linda was honestly a little surprised, while at the same time happy. I took off to go shopping at Costco, while Linda stayed home, and I also had a little side errand to do, that was another surprise for Linda. David had asked me to go to a specific flower shop and pick up some flowers he had purchased, also for Mother's Day. When I got home Linda was again surprised, and now there are even more flowers. The house is going to smell nice for a few days.
The rest of the day was a little more relaxed, and I was able to help Jason with his shower, a little earlier than previously. We had a nice simple dinner and then, after I took Kojak outside for another little walk around the yard, to take care of business, we decided it was enough for the day. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
