I've disappeared for over week, but now I'm back. We took a road trip/camping trip to California to see the desert wildflowers in bloom. I've never done that before, but let me tell you, it sure was fun! We started at Death Valley National Park, then moved south to Mojove National Preserve, and Joshua Tree National Park. Death Valley was really interesting, but Mojove and Joshua Tree had the best wildflowers, because they got rain this year when Death Valley didn't. We drove through Anza-Brorrego State Park on the way to San Diego. On the way home we drove through Sequoia National Park, and Yosemite National Park, where there was still lots of snow, and only a few wildflowers at lower elevations. But both places were very beautiful! We needed more days, but were glad for each one we had. I'll start sharing pictures with you when my husband can move them from his laptop (where I downloaded on the trip) to my computer. Today I've got to focus on unpacking, cleaning up and helping my kids get back into routine.

I'm glad you are all still here. Thank you for all you comments, even when I was gone.
