This past week we (minus Dan) spent in sunny California.  We decided to make it a surprise for my parents which was pretty fun.  They love their grandbabies.  And I love the help.  Let’s give Kerri a big thumbs up for being my traveling companion.  It is not easy traveling with 2 kiddos.  But she was a champ and the kids were not half bad either.  I love California for many reasons, but mostly because it means family time.

Hangin’ out at Grandma and Grandpa’s.  I thought letting Sophie go off the one step would teach her that she didn’t know how to do it…but it didn’t work so well.  She just kept nose-diving off.  But it didn’t seem to bother her.

We went to a splash park.  Jack loved it.  Sophs was a little unsure.  It was super fun to watch them play.

The beach is must on every trip to CA now.  Jack loves it.  So although it is a bit of a drive, it is worth it.  The kids loved the sand.  And Sophie hated the ocean.  I don’t blame her.  It was freezing!

Jack became quite the swimmer on this trip.  I felt so proud of him.  On our last day there, we went to the Petersen’s to swim and Sophie finally warmed up to the water.  Hooray.

It was an awesome trip.  Thanks for letting us surprise you Mom and Dad.

  1. Our pleasure–let’s be honest, that was the most fun having you just show up like that. We loved the surprise and playing with the grandkids is the best. We love our two girls also of course. Can’t wait to play again real soon. On with July now! Hi Sophie and Jack, Jack!

  2. Such a grand time! I’ve had major Jack and Buggy withdrawals the last few days. So fun to spend time with everyone and I love California!
