Last week we spent four very relaxing days in Twain Harte, CA. We drove out on Monday and arrived home on Thursday, refreshed and relaxed after our mini-vacation at a delightful home nestled in the woods. The Grandmas Dulce & Irene (‘Reen) came along as well, and much time was spent snuggling with and reading to the “favorite grandsons.” We didn’t do half of the things I’d pinned to my Twain Harte / Aug. 2014 board, we did mange to go to the small-scale train at Cover’s Apple Ranch, and we did go for a short walk at Pinecrest Lake. We spent most of our time in the above-ground pool, the private lake, walking along the path along the ditch/creek, and reading books on the wrap-around porch.
The train at Cover’s Ranch was alright, Oliver kept asking about “train hart” and while I tried to explain it was Twain, not train, this was lost on him, so going on a train ride was pretty much a necessity.
The lake was awesome, with in a few moments the boys had stripped down to nothing and were wading arm-pit deep. We came back the next day with swim suits and float vests, and O made it out to the floating pontoon in the middle of the lake (which much assistance from Gavin and myself).
