jam packed

Grandmama (Ben's mom) came for a quick trip this weekend. We jam packed it with a lot of good family time and a lot of fun. She is an avid gardener and came with us to the L.A. Garden Show. We all thought it was the coolest ever and will be even more prepared next year. Ben came home with 15 different tomato varieties and I came home with some really fantastic ferns. They are seriously the most fantastic things ever as far as house plants go. Once, I have them up I will share it.

After the garden show, we came home, cleaned up, dropped off our plants and made our way to the beach, but not before we stop by to pick up some Sprinkles... yum! Then, we ended the evening with a yummy dinner right by the sea and a walk admiring the ocean and sunset. Oh how I wish we came to the beach more often!
