Spring Break 2015

Brett & I took Spring Break off. It was my first vacation in a year. I took last Spring Break off too. We went camping in Joshua Tree National Park with family. This year we were going camping in Yosemite National Park with Maryam's American Heritage Girls troop. 
We took off for Visalia that Tuesday to see Auntie Karen, Auntie Kathy, & Brian & his family. We figured it was a good half way point.
We woke up Thursday morning to leave and some jerk stole our camping stuff out of the back of our rented pickup truck. Vacation ruined. Months of planning out the window. Hundreds of dollars down the drain. They took nearly all of our camping items. Personal stuff too! The kids' board games, football, my favorite Thirty-One bag, the kids' brand new snow globes. The list goes on and on. I'm still angry about it. Very angry about it. 
Brett & I tried to recover what was left of the vacation. It was already Thursday and the kids had to go back to school Monday. We headed home to regroup.  We had some friends over Thursday night. Friday morning we got up early & headed to Disneyland. We stayed at Disneyland all day. We left the park after midnight and drove to San Diego. Saturday morning we headed to the San Diego Zoo. We stayed there for quite a while! We got rained on both days but nobody complained. We live in the desert, we enjoy the rain when we get it!
Sunday we slept in, went to lunch, then spent nearly 3 hours in Barnes & Nobles I think Maryam found her new favorite place in the world! 
We recovered our Spring Break. The kids had fun with Plan B. Maryam was feeling well.
