Warm weather, good friends and a date with a mouse.

The girls and I arrived in beautiful Orange County today. Eric is in Argentina on a business trip so we're meeting my good friend Cara, and two of her kids, for a Spring Break week in sunny California.

We landed, rented a car and then headed to Balboa Beach. It's beautiful out today, a little cooler than it's supposed to be the rest of the week, but definitely warm enough that both girls declared it a coat-free day. We ate lunch -- grilled mahi mahi tacos with mango salsa! -- bought sunscreen and sand toys and then headed to the beach. The girls built a whole sand kingdom complete with castles and a wall around it.

After a couple hours, sand-covered and sunscreen-sticky, we headed to our hotel. We changed clothes and then went to Downtown Disney for dinner -- and a little dancing and jumping.

Tomorrow we're going to Disneyland. I predict there will be many more expressions of unbridled joy!
