California Dreaming: Part 2

Break in the action!  This is the second part to our big March California trip.
 The remainder of our trip was spent at Grandma's House.

 Cousins and best friends.  Sadly, we didn't get to see all of them this time around.  :(  One day we will have that big cousin reunion...  :)





 Grandma's pool is glorious!  I grew up swimming there with my siblings and cousins, and it was so special to do it again together.

 Crazy things happen!  We ended up with this cool car thanks to a mistake from the rental company.

 We took a couple days to head over to Anaheim Ballet where we all danced while growing up.  Mommy got to visit with her special friend Carolyn, and we all met a new friend, Madison.
Dynamite comes in small packages.

 A beautiful sunset over the school.

Auntie Kaggy (my mom's best friend) and Uncle Ted came over for a very special visit.

They went on a double take, complete with taking the Mustang for a spin!

 Bible Bee friends, the C. boys came over for a fun visit.  We had a blast swimming and playing basketball!

My dad taught me how to do the Swan Dive.

 No, it did not end up as a belly-flop.  ;)

Success!

A highlight was taking an evening trip to Downtown Disney with cousin Hope.
 Catching the tail end of the fireworks.

 Judah in front of the Rainforest Cafe.

 Finding Nemo.  Or something.

 Hope explaining some interesting facts about fish.  Or something.

 You'd think we were movie stars! 

 Ben coming face to face with a snake!

 Conquering the Disney Vault with as much brawn as we could muster.

 Beauty (who looked kind of like a beast) and the Beast.

The Disney Hotel.

 Those smiles though.  :) 

 Hope and I are just so cute...  ;)

Jordan, Eden, and Mark hanging out on the couch together.

Shiloh and Uncle Rob.

Cousin craziness goes from one thing...

To the next!
 Best uncle ever!

 The families that photobomb together...

 Stay together! 

 Aunt Laurie, Grandma, and Mommy.

 Aw, I miss everyone so much!

That was long post, but there is no possible way to put such a glorious trip into one little post.  I am so thankful to the Lord for all His bountiful blessings!
