The next morning, I spent a little more time with my girls including a trip to a nearby indoor playground where they had a play date. The place was called Under the Sea and was like heaven on earth for little ones. There was a bouncy house that Kamryn was super excited about:
There were a ton of slides that the girls were also very excited about, although they have very different approaches. Kenley likes to go down the slide backwards:
And she was so pleased with herself:
Kamryn was more of a classicist on the slide:
But soon it was time to bid the girls and Heidi farewell and head off to tri camp. But I first had a planned detour, a trip to the gorgeous Santa Clarita Aquatic Center. Who cares about wind and gray clouds on the horizon when there’s an opportunity to swim here:
I had a lane all to myself. Heck, I had the womens changing room to myself! It was awesome.
And then of course there was a quick refueling stop at the In-N-Out burger:
And finally, it was time to actually finish the drive to tri camp. I’m always struck how out in the middle of nowhere this camp is:
And there usually isn’t snow on the mountain tops. But I made it in one piece and got to meet most of the other girls who had just returned from a bike ride. I chit-chatted with them and then got my bags out of the car. There were a few girls wanting to go out for a run, so I decided to join them. I love that we can run on a dirt road like this right from the door:
With my favorite joshua trees along the path. There were a few still flowering, which was cool:
We also got to meet Monty’s wife and 8-month old son Wyatt, who was rocking a head-shaping helmet:
He was a cute little guy, (even if he does look like a mini-Magneto) who had no shortage of attention from the ladies:
All in all, a very successful day. It looks like a big fun group and I think it’s going to be a good time.
