“Growing apart doesn’t change the fact that for a long time we grew side by side; our roots will always be tangled. I’m glad for that.” -A. Condie

“Friends…they cherish one another’s hopes. They are kind to one another’s dreams.” -Thoreau

When we started planning our trip, we asked the kids where they would want to go if they could go any place in the whole world. The answer was Manhattan Beach. 🙂 So, we cashed in some miles and made sure we got a layover there. We could only get 23 hours, but we took it. It was incredibly short, but we got to see many people when we went to the kids’ old school. Some people also played with us at the beach (even though for the locals- it was “cold.”) Kiki, Kelley, Francesca, Georgia, Robby, Declan, Duncan, Nick, Rachel, Gracie, Ambria, Bennett and Chloe were all troopers (and their moms, too!) To all of our friends in MB- whenever we stroll into town, we can feel how much we are loved. What a happy place. What incredible people!
