California Trip Part1: Aunt Jenny's House

The beginning of March brought The Trip of the Year for us as we packed our bags and headed down to sunny SoCal for a week and a half of relatives, fun, laughter, good memories, dancing (of course!), and the very anticipated wedding that some of us were involved in!

We have been super busy so that is why we were not as prompt as we would have been, but better late than never, you know!  I will be sure to get a Part 2 up promptly!

On the road!  
We rented a big 15 passenger van which was such a blessing to have room like that!
Our first stop was in Northern California at Aunt Jenny's house where we spent the night with her.

Judah and Aunt Jenny at Rubios... this used to be one of our favorite places to eat when we lived here.
It couldn't pass up Wahoo's Fish Tacos though!

Aunt Jenny and Mommy.
 We spent the evening catching up and looking forward to the next day when we would see the girls!

Shiloh serenades us on one of the cousin's guitar!

Awww!  Judah is still our "Cute Boy"!

The next day we were sooo excited to meet up with the girls Cassidy, Audrey, and Chloe.  It had been about six years since we saw them last!

Cassidy and Audrey wanted to show us a stunt that they were working on, so the asked me to help. 
 Once again I am caught doing something dangerous!

We laughed so hard about this picture... it looked like Audrey  was an angel coming down from the sky!

We took a quick walk to the park while the guys went to take pictures somewhere.

Fun in the sun!

When everyone got back, we sat down to play one of our favorite games: "Catch Phrase".

Hmmmm... what is that word?!
Love everyone's expressions here!

That evening, Daddy cooked us up a magnificent dinner!


After dinner, we ran outside to learn how to "Rip Stick".

Chloe shows us hows the pros do it.

Although it doesn't look like it here, I did get the hang of it (sort of).

Jordan's two seconds of a ride!

Then we ran back inside to do a little Irish Ceili Dancing...

The dance in full swing!

Oh, and then we had to sing a few songs... yes, we had six years worth of things to catch up on, so this was one busy day!

And then we had to take pictures...
The girls.

All the cousins.

Skinny Girls!

Think it was easy to get all of us smiling like that?  Nope!
One of those pictures where everyone is looking every which way--except at the camera!

Being Mac users and all... we were elated to find that Aunt Jenny had WiFi.

That night we packed up and left really early to continue down to Southern California for a full week!

"Thanks, Aunt Jenny and girls, for the wonderful time that we spent at your house!  We love you all!"

Stay tuned for Part 2!
