This past weekend, Mr. Darcy and I enjoyed a getaway back to California. We try to get there once a year; sometimes with children and sometimes alone such as this past weekend. This particular trip, we started in Los Angeles, then headed up to UCSanta Barbara (alumni weekend~~Mr. Darcy is class of 1995) and ending North of Santa Barbara in the Danish community of Solvang and further North into wine country. For this mother of 5 under the age of 11 and with finals weeks approaching (blech.), it was a much needed respite.

I feel fortunate that our current life in AZ is close enough that we are able to get back to visit California. I love taking the kids to the beach and no matter how many times I go there, there is always something new to explore. For a girl like me who loves all things outdoors from camping to rockclimbing, It is one of my favorite destinations to go as a couple and as a family and since we were able to scout a few family campgrounds while there this time, our California family adventures are sure to continue.
What adventures do you have planned for this summer ? Are you longing for beaches? Dessert vistas? Or something in between?
