Oh my have week had a busy week and I'm exhausted! I FINALLY had time to go through the 200 pictures I took on our trip to California earlier this month. We hadn't been home in over 2 years, it was a long overdue trip! The girls were so excited! All of our family is on the West Coast and we don't get to see them nearly as much as we want too. The hubby and I also look forward to eating at all our favorite places, and that we did. I don't think there could have been a happier pregnant lady!
Our trip was long and it takes a lot of organizing and planning to get a family of 4, their bags, two strollers, two car seats and everyone's carry-on bags on plane on time, but we did it and we very little frustration and tears!
When we exited the airport in Orange County the girls saw these beautiful palm trees. Logan was mesmerized by them. She kept saying, "Mommy look at those beautiful trees!!! What are they?!?!?" Both Nate and I felt a little sad that they didn't recognize them.
From the airport we made our customary first stop to the best burgers in Cali, In-n-Out. Nothing says welcome home like a Double-Double Animal Style!
I love that practically every day in Cali is a perfect weather day. The girls and I got to spend a perfect day at the park together while daddy ran 20 miles (he's training for a marathon) in the hot Cali sun.
The only place for Donuts in G-town is the Donut Man (we visited there twice!).
The girls loved the little Easter Basket donuts. How could you not love a donut with frosting, coconut and jelly beans!
One of the best parts about visiting Cali is seeing my baby brother! We also FINALLY got to meet his fiance who we all just fell in love with! They just welcomed a baby boy last week. We all had so much spending time with them. The girls LOVE their Uncle Ryan!
It was so nice spending the week without too many commitments. We all got to relax and enjoy our time. We were thankful for wonderful weather and Nana & Poppa's huge back yard!
There's nothing like a bee-u-tee-ful time in Cali to make you smile!
