Family Trips are NOT Vacations

My husband and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary in April, but we didn't manage to get away alone together until the last weekend of May. What a dream! We were only gone for two nights and three days, but I felt like a completely different person! We have very rarely gone away like this so I had forgotten what it was like to sleep in, eat slowly, and stare into space uninterrupted. I enjoyed every second of every minute. We were in the quiet little coastal town of Cambria, just north of San Luis Obispo. We've often talked about driving up Pacific Coast Highway together and we finally did it. (Tho' we'd love to go all the way up the coast someday. Cambria is only about 31/2 hours north of Los Angeles.) We went to Hearst Castle, checked out the elephant seals, ate yummy food, walked the beach, visited a gorgeous nursery (Brandon wanted to check out the bonsai) and shopped for trinkets for the kids in the "quaint" downtown shops. It was heaven. Absolute heaven. THAT is the difference between a family trip and a vacation.
