On a side note, we are going out of town for the week to Morro Bay and Carpinteria. I can't wait. I'm hoping that Jack and Ryan will sleep for some of the car rides, but I am doubtful because for whatever reason, my children don't seem to sleep in cars. Jack cries and Ryan talks, and talks, and talks, and asks why, why, why, until given an ipod to watch Cars. Phil or I tend to have to ride in the back seat and soothe Jack while the other one drives. With two car seats in the back, this is not a comfortable car ride. Anyway, I hope to spend a lot of time outside next week walking around and soaking up the cooler weather. I also hope to remember to get out the camera and take some pictures so I have something to blog about when I get home.
