I'm goin' to the land down under

12 days. 12 days until I am off for the land down under. 12 days until I will get that unsettling feeling about being away from my family for so long. 12 days until I will have to brace myself for the 14 hour flight that lies in store for me. 12 days until I will be able to see family that I have waited for forever to meet and to give a big hug and kiss to. 12 days until I will be able to hear the beautiful accents of aussie men. 12 days until I will see new sights and create new memories that will last a lifetime. 12 days.... oh yes.... 12 days.

I had a "beachin" time

So this past week was our family vacation to California. Sun, sand, and water are the three ingredients to make me happy. It was such a relaxing week and I loved every minute of it....well....almost. I loved going with my family and being able to share moments that will be remembered. I was bummed when we had to leave. Time had gone by so fast and one of the reasons that it went by so fast was because I didn't get burnt on the first day. The past years I have always gotten burnt on the first day. I am from Arizona, the state the brings on the heat, shouldn't I be immune to the sun? Well, the second to last day, I got burnt. And I only burnt on ONE leg. Seriously, one leg, what the crap. I put sunscreen on BOTH legs, how does that happen? So the next day I decided to even it out a bit so I didn't put any sunscreen on the leg that didn't get burnt and it ended up getting redder than the other one. So now I am stupid because it hurts and even more stupid because now I still have uneven colored legs.
Other than that uneventful time of the trip, I think it was one of the best vacations ever. I am so greatful that I have parents who are willing to take family vacations. They are the times that I will remember forever and will be able to keep up the traditions that our family has created.
