I know it's been a LONG time since I've written. Like over a month. I could give you a tons of excuses and reasons why, but no one like excuses, so I'll just say I'm sorry and move on! :)
Get ready for a TON of pictures!!
These are all pictures from our trip to California last month. We went out for my brother-in-law's Ordination/installation into the ministry.
Here is Dan and the girls getting ready to take flight!
(of course Anna had to put the seat belt in her mouth. She is STILL in that stage)
The first thing we did was go to the San Diego Zoo with Dan's family. What a beautiful zoo!!
Here's Anna checking out her favorite animal.... ducks of all things. :)
We saw some amazing animals. I loved this momma hippo and her baby.
They had a HUGE elephant area.
Anna had a lot of fun playing with Grandma and her cousins.
We spent a couple days at the beach.
Anna is testing out the waters.
She had fun running in and out of the "waves"... until she fell in the water and then she was done.
Molly liked the water, too.
You have to have a cousins bath picture! (I'm sure they will love this when they are grown.)
Here's Uncle Matt and Aunt Melissa with their nieces and nephews.
Molly with Great-Grandma Shellenbarger.
Anna tripped and her cheek met a tile step. She had a nice shiner for about a week.
This is our second day at the beach. This time we went to a beach with big waves. I loved rolling and diving in the water. Molly is quite the beach babe. :)
The family at Laguna Beach.
Cousin Greta and Anna had matching shirts.
We drove by my former church and school, King of Kings, Garden Grove. I was born in California and went here until we moved when I was six years old. I wanted to see if it matched my 6-year old memory. It was pretty close!
We even made it to Disneyland!!!! Here are the girls in their Minnie outfits, ready to go!
It was such a fun day, but I think the best part was meeting Mickey Mouse. Anna's face was priceless.
We got to meet Minnie as well! I think Anna was star-struck!
Even Molly loved Disney!
Anna LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the parade. So much so, we saw it twice. Here she is, watching Mickey come down the road.
She also got very excited when she saw Donald Duck.
This the church my brother-in-law, David, is serving.
Here are my brother-in-law, Matt, my brother-in-law, David, Dan, and my father-in-law at David's ordination.
Overall, it was great vacation. We can't wait to go back and visit again!
