This spring has been such a busy time for everyone, and so Mike and I decided that our summer family trip needed to be something where we could completely relax. We looked into Hawaii and Florida but settled on California. We flew into the Orange County airport and headed to the Marriott Villa Resort in Newport Beach. The flight was pretty good except for some turbulence and Madeline wanting to go back and forth between me and Mike. All of our bags arrived except for the car seat. Ugh. The United lady told us it would be on the next fight and so we borrowed a car seat to get to our resort. Luckily the airport was pretty close to where we were headed. We stopped to at HiroNori first to eat Ramen. It was the BEST ramen we have had since Japan. From the restaurant it was only a 10 min drive to the Marriott resort. While the younger kids and I unpacked our clothes Mike and Andrew went to pick up groceries. Most of us were tired and headed to bed pretty early but Mike and Andrew went for a late swim in the peanut shaped pool by our villa.
