A couple weeks ago I went to the annual conference for the nonprofit I volunteer for. I run their teen program. This was the first year since 2006 that I have gone without Mark/the boys. It was just too far this year to schlep them all across the country with me (location changes each year), but next year Miles will be old enough for the kids program and we’ll all be there together again 🙂
Although we used to live in CA, I’d never been to LA before. I think I prefer Northern CA! Still, being in Hollywood was fun! Some things I did when I wasn’t working:
Of course, there were meetings and workshops too, and late night snacks with friends I only see once or twice a year.
While I was gone, the boys had adventures of their own: going to the science museum, playing at a park with my mom, going to a cookout with my family, and buying and planting an apple tree. They were VERY proud of that last one! I wonder how long it will take to get apples?
