My Grandmama had a family reunion scheduled for this coming February and about 20+ of my family members were going to come to Las Vegas for a week! My Grandmama ended up cancelling due to the fact that she is getting older and traveling is getting hard for her… she’s going to be 90 this year! So I knew that I wanted to go visit her before baby makes his arrival.
I flew into San Jose on January 25 and stayed for two nights. My aunt and uncle picked me up from the airport and took me to my Grandmama’s house. My Grandmama lives in Capitola which is a little town near Santa Cruz, CA. We ended up going out for lunch and then going grocery shopping. I made my Grandmama curry for dinner and she loved it!
On Friday, my aunt and I went for a walk around the Capitola village. We walked around 2 miles and I must say that was super hard on this pregnant body of mine but it felt nice! Afterwards, we played a round of dominoes with my Grandmama. That night my NorCal family (8 of us total) went out for dinner. After dinner, we went back to my aunts house and they surprised me with a mini baby shower! It was so nice and unexpected. Baby boy got some amazing gifts!
The next day, my Grandmama and I went and got pedicures and went out for lunch. My cousin came and took me to the airport. It was definitely nice catching up with the family and I’m so glad I got to see them all. It’s hard not seeing them as much as I used to since I moved away from NorCal. All in all, it was a quick but awesome mini vacation.
