A Week in California

Once upon a time there were two wonderful parents, who must be getting pretty old and senile, because by their own freewill and choice they decided to take

their four crazy children, DSCF9834 DSCF9844   DSC_0147DSC_0231DSCF9730 two counter parts, and one adorable grandchild (ok we can see why they want her) to California for a week.

So they rented a 15 passenger van and packed us in for the long  haul to San Clemente, CA.DSCF0543

We also traveled to the Nixon library.

And we visited Knott’s Berry Farm. Where some of us road lots of fun scary rides.

And some of us sat by and watched and road lame log rides and train rides

and watched Snoopy on Ice. (o the joys of pregnancy).DSC_0182  

But most of all we enjoyed being with each other. Whether we were playing games, enjoying the next meal, or taking a walk to the pier, it was just fun to be together.DSC_0020 DSC_0022 DSC_0027 DSCF0555 DSCF0571 DSC_0135 DSC_0139 DSC_0239 DSC_0265

So maybe those parents aren't so crazy after all.

Thanks Mom and Dad! It was a blast!… Can we go back next week?
