What I Love About California!

Thursday = Beach
I was down in San Diego visiting my family, Amanda and I decided to take the kiddo's to the beach that our Mommy took us as kid's La Jolla Shores! The day was perfect, sunny, warm, and beautiful! Amanda's kids had a total blast. Brooke, not so much! She hated the sand on her toes, hated the coldness of the water, she would not let m set her down! The only thing I think she did enjoy was when she was in the swings (away from the sand), and playing on the grass with her cousins. Either way we had fun. Amanda's kids enjoyed every bit of the beach! Hopefully Brooke will grow in her love for the beach?
These 2, Oh MY GOODNESS, they are so dang cute together but they are going to keep their Mommies on our toes, sometimes they have WAY too much fun together!
Can you tell how thrilled Brooke is to be here?
Kenna and Kellen were having a blast together in the water! I was trying to get Brooke to watch them and be tempted by the fun they were having but nope, she was not interested AT ALL!
BOYS! I can't wait to have mine! Amanda and I turned around from taking photo's and there was Kellen with it whipped out watering the seaweed! Ha it was great! So glad Amanda thought to take this picture!
Us and our blond haired, blue eyed babies!
Brooke is a GOON!

Saturday = Mountains
So Kipper's family made a super awesome last minute decision to rent a cabin up in Jullian, CA for General Conference weekend! They called me while I was down in Diego visiting with my family and invited our little family up for the fun weekend! We could not pass up the opportunity for fun and more family time! We are so glad they got this cabin. It ended up being a blast for us grown up's as well as the kid's. The place was huge, it was super cool, had a RAD yard, and was in Jullian which I LOVE that place! There was a kid's room that was so neat. It had a tree on the wall made out of chalkboard material and the kids LOVED coloring all over it! The cousins played together great, us adults enjoyed the time together as well. Tho Brooke did have a HORRIBLE NIGHT!!!! She didn't hardly sleep at all. I was up pretty much all night and Kipper traded with me really early in the wee morning hours. We were miserably tired the next day. Still don't know why she had her worst night of sleep she has ever had since she was born there?
We got some super dang fun photo's from the trip. Here goes!
Jake is SO CUTE and such a sweet boy!
Ring Around The Rosie!
I LOVE this picture of Brooke and Grandma Robinson!
Cute cousins!
The cool color tree!
Tag around pregnant me with bed head!
Breakfast! Isn't that a fabulous shot of Kip and I?
Yep that is our itty bitty little girl going down the Zipline, or as Brooke called it the Zippie, all by herself! She is SO BRAVE! We are so proud!
Brooke LOVED the Zippie, I think it freaked out Grandma a bit :)
Hailee LOVED the Zippy too! Echo looks like he is going to eat Hailee but he is just playing.
CUTE shot of Brooke, Echo, and Grandpa!
So one of the reasons I love California is the fact that both set's of our family live here so we can see all of the Grandma's, Grandpa's, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins all at once or within a few days! LOVE our families! We are blessed!
Another reason I love California is the fact that on Thursday we can be playing at the Beach and Saturday we could be up in the Mountains! Love it!
Another weekend of GREAT memories made!

San Diego really is incredible for that reason. What a fun weekend for you guys! The beach was a blast and I totally think we need to go again soon when you come down one of these days....before you pop out that baby and before the summer crowds get too out of control! And Brooke on that zipline...she rocks! And she looks so pleased with herself and proud. And way to go mom for being brave enough to let her go and allow her to try it!
