California Dreamin

Joel had a rare week off at the beginning of this month and we took a trip to sunny (sometimes) CA to visit his family and go to the beach.  Our good friends, the MacDonalds, joined us for a couple of days. With the exception of a few days of overcast weather, we could not have had a better time!  Here are some of the highlights:

The kid’s favorite day was probably this one- spent at Dennis the Menace park…



The following day was at the Aquarium and Cannery Row:IMG_0023-1

Future engagement pictures…haha. These two were so cute together:IMG_0045



Finally, Point Lobos and the beach…IMG_0077



After the beach we went to stay at La Colina where we delighted in spending time with Grandma Vicki and Dr. Papa for a couple of days, had a serious Bandi photo shoot and stayed up way too late hanging with two of our favorite people. Thanks to everyone for making us feel loved.

We’re already dreaming up our next trip…

Hats On

This was a month or so ago (yes, I am behind) and I forgot to post it… it made me laugh. Norah was rummaging through her closet one day and pulled out a couple of hats that Aunt Caroline had sent to us a while back. She tried several on before deciding on her favorite.  She even chose one for Ezra but he wasn’t so jazzed about it. Maybe it was the pink…

Sittin’ around…

Six months and sitting!  A whole new world has opened up… for both of us.
