Fortunately for me, I had the chance to escape Wisconsin for much of March. Though March wasn't the worst month weather-wise, it was nice to visit sunny California in the beginning! The children and I ditched Carl once again for a week :( and visited friends and family. Sleep was awful for the three of us, but at least we spent the days having fun! We went to the park, SF Zoo, Golden Gate Park, and of course spent quality time with the Lockwood family!
Warning: picture overload!
