Indiana Came to Town

So since I was last in, we were battling fires.... since then things have settled yet stirred up. Shannon's mom was in town from Indiana and we had a great 10 days with her. We spent a lot of our time at the beach and just relaxing. Shannon was on-cycle so his days were quite busy, but the kids and I enjoyed the time with family and were sad to see her go. We did get a few kid free nights in and we spent those going to dinner with his mom and brother. 

We enjoyed great food and music at Coyote Bar and Grill in Carlsbad, and we had to frequent Shannon's favorite, Benihana. I forgot how nice it is to enjoy a dinner without screaming kids throwing vegetables in your face... This was a much needed mini vacay for mommy!
