Yesterday we took advantage of that gorgeous Summer weather and we went to Santa Cruz. We had planned trip to San Francisco but we changed it.
We wanted to do something fun for my b-day…
…and we did.
… and it was fun.
but not so much for me as for those who was watching us.
We went to the Mystery Spot in Santa Cruz.
Everything was going pretty smooth until we started out tour. Sorry but I won’t explain why everything up there works as it does. I wasn’t paying much attention to what the tour guy was saying because our No 1 was doing everything she could to not let me to listen.
I actually don’t blame her. On this so called “gravity hill” it was hard to walk or stand straight even for adults.
I wish we had planned it differently so we would’ve enjoyed that place a bit more and for a longer period. It’s a beautiful place out there as Santa Cruz itself is.
After a few minutes of being there our No 1 got really upset of not being able to keep her balance. And at the same time as a two year old she wanted to go where she wanted not where we were going (yep, she got her “terrible two” moments up there). It was just impossible to make her stop whining!
… and the only picture of me I ended up from that trip is taken in a hurry, while packing everybody to the car, self-portrait :)
Despite all the bruises our daughter got from falling straight on her face she finished the day with a big smile.
Oh well, without all those ups and downs that day wouldn’t be so memorable, I guess ;)
