We’ve had a busy, full summer.
Ashlyn started soccer last week.
The girls start school this week.
Hope Kids had their New Testament Graduation ceremony yesterday.
The craziness of fall is upon us.
I like crazy.
We took a trip to Southern California a few weeks ago.
It’s an annual event.
Thanks to my generous parentals.
Hello, Newport Coast Villas coy pond.
I think the girls love the coy more than Disneyland.
The family’s all together!
With Princess Celestia.
Discussing if and how long salt water species could survive in chlorinated water.
Make it stop.
Sunset dinner at Ruby’s.
Shirley temple shakes and Frito chili bags.
Poolside BBQ at the Burns residence.
Blog friend turned real friend.
Tinkerbell shades was excited.
Radiator Springs, Population 57.8 billion.
But worth it.
The new Cars ride was magical.
Our car raced my parents and Ashlyn and they won.
Ashlyn called us losers.
And said “you guys couldn’t do it.”
Thank you, Ashlyn.
My dad’s Disneyland motto?
Just say no to food courts.
So we ate our monogrammed pastries and threatened our children to behave like the fancy people.
It’s a Small Air-Conditioned World.
Also, our favorite.
Fun, full day.
We all slept well that night.
And spent the next few days relaxing.
Participating in poolside extracurriculars.
All kinds of hippie awesome.
Coke breaks in the shade.
Swimming is tough work you know.
Sneak-away Fashion Island shopping trips for the girls.
Mom doesn’t understand selfies.
And beach days.
Digging for sand crabs.
Heaven for my rainbow-toed girls.
Thanks so much, Mom and Dad.
We love you!
