California Revisited

We lived in Orange County back in the mid-80's.
So it was fun to visit southern California last week.
That's DH and I on Coronado Island.

Of course we went to the San Diego Zoo.
Below is our grandson visiting with a gorilla!

Isn't he the cutest?

I loved the reindeer. SD Zoo has everything. It's a beautiful zoo.....
but very hilly..........

Below is a Laguna Beach shot. We ate lunch there on Thursday on our way to visit our old hood!

This is in LaJolla on Wednesday at lunch.

Laguna Beach restaurant.

And below is our old house....... top of a driveway.  Surprised it hasn't burned or slid off that hill!

Our son was 2 and 3 years old when we lived there........ now he has an almost 2 year old!
He didn't realize how high in the hills we lived!

 It was a fun week!!! 

Nice to look back!
I read that the best way to see if God is working in your life is to look backward.
So true!
I am so thankful!

Can't believe it's September! I didn't even post in August!!!

This looks like such a great trip! Your animal photos are great -- I don't think I knew you were a Californian! Must break your heart every time you hear about a fire or mudslide. I'm glad your old home was still in place!

Happy September Linda ~ You know I am happy to see you posting.
How nice and full of wonder your trip back looks and extra meaningful that your son and his son could experience it too ♥!
If only that beautiful CA weather and scenery didn't come with the possibility of so many disasters...but in truth there is potential for it everywhere in one form or another.
It's all about choice.
p.s. precious little grandson!!!

That is so true, looking back to see how God is working in your life. I think that's why getting older isn't so bad, you know He's there! I love all of your index cards too. Maybe you are to keep them and bind them in an altered book! Then give them to your kids. Just a thought.
