We've been wanting to take a last little family vacation before our family of four becomes a family of five, so when a busy trial at work wrapped up, we seized the opportunity to take a few days off and headed north to Newport Beach for some family fun.
We stayed at some nice little villas that were perfect for our family - two bedrooms, a kitchen, family, two big bathrooms, etc., so everyone had plenty of space. Joseph kept commenting about how HUGE everything was. He *loved* the hotel. They also had a number of swimming pools (including a kiddie pool), a putting green, a play ground, and other activities for the kids. So we spent most of our time hanging around there.
But we also went to the beach, where Audrey decided she was not interested in the chilly water (fine with us, as that meant we didn't have to chase her around the whole time), and Joseph decided he was more interested in "protecting" our stuff from aggressive squirrels and birds than really doing anything else.
