Mother's Day Weekend

On Mother's Day weekend we did a bit of touristy traveling here in California. On Saturday, we went to visit Hearst Castle. If you've never been, it is a must see! We had a great time and the castle is beautiful! Bring Benadryl if you are allergic to flowers even in the tiniest bit, my face swelled so I could barely see, my eyes and nose were runny, and I couldn't stop sneezing from the beautiful flower gardens, but it was worth every minute! I won't go back without allergy meds though! We even stopped in Paso Robles for a little walking around and a yummy dinner. We can't wait to go back to check out some of the wineries!

Then on Sunday, we went to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. First we drove down, what seemed like, the never ending road and ended up at Crystal Cave. We had a wonderful time exploring the cave, but the walk back up the hill was a little tough. After the cave we drove to the LodgePole Restaurant on top of one of the great big hills and had a wonderful time exploring the path and eating a yummy dinner. It was a long and tiring day, but so much fun! We even got to see a baby black bear!

Karen, thanks for your comments and encouragement over at my blog. I love the pictures from your trip and Morgan is beautiful! Guess an end result as perfect as that makes the whole TTC journey more than worthwhile.

I will definitely check into the massages - haven't heard that that is offered. We are using Dominion Fertility in Northern Virginia. And I will definitely pester you with questions because I'm sure I'll have tons along the way. Thanks again, fellow Virginian :)
