Girls Dedication, Disneyland and The Beach

A few weeks ago we went out to California for Addy and Ella's dedication. We had such a great time. TONS of family there and friends too (from San Diego and Arizona). The girls did great the whole weekend but what I was secretly worried about was Sunday morning and getting spit up on by one of them as they were being dedicated...OK, here's why, My mom tells me that when I was dedicated I spit up all down her dress as she was walking me up to the stage (yes, she still holds it against me to this day). I was sure my time was going to come and since neither Kaden nor Carson got me during their dedications it would have to be one of the girls. However I am proud to say that I walked away from their dedication spit up free.

We decided to stay a few extra days and go to Disneyland. The boys have been before and love it...Kaden even got to go on big roller coasters this time. The girls got to meet Minnie and Mickey Mouse. It was really sweet, we ate breakfast with the characters and Minnie came over and oowed and awed over the girls, then on a napkin wrote "I'll baby sit". Carson got to see his favorite Disney characters of all, Lightning McQueen and Mator. It's safe to say that those two Disney days were a hit all around.

Well, Tony left for home after two days of Disneyland but the kids and I stayed for a few more days to go to our old church in Vista. They were having a 52nd anniversary and asked dad to preach. On the way back to Pasadena we stopped by the beach, Oceanside Harbor (the same beach I went to all growing up) and let the boys play. Kaden was stripping his clothes off as he ran down the sand...it took all of about 3 seconds for him to be drenched. Carson had to warm up to it a bit but by the end when I would say "time to go" he'd respond by holding up 1 finger and saying "more minutes".

Thanks for the latest from the trip. My favorites are the beach. The ocean is so much fun when you're a kid.
