Laguna Beach California 2008

California part 2. My brother Sam invited us to the beach with him and his girlfriend Kathy and their daughter Natalie. Natalie is 4 years old and we were meeting her for the first time she is so cute and the girls and her got along great. It was a great day for the beach it was sunny and warm. Bella even went in to the freezing cold pacific water for a little swimming Abby of course wouldn't go near the surf she was content to play in the sand. It was low tide at the beach so we go to explore all the tidal pools. The girls loved all the sea creatures we discovered. I think their favorite were the star fish. We hung out all day we even drove a little further down the coast and watched the sun set at Dana point. I think some day I would like to retire by the beach I just haven't decided which one. The california adventure will continue. We were there for 11 days we have a lot to write about.

Well here is our update on our trip to California. We drove Rick's big truck there or should I say Rick drove I did not drive 1 mile of the trip. I don't like driving Rick's big truck it is way to big for me. Well back to our trip. It took us 21/2 days to get there. We arrived to clear sunny skies and high's in the 70's. I was in formed that Lacrosse got about 8 inches of snow right after we left. I was glad we left when we did. Our Adventures in California started out with a trip to Disneyland it was a great day with beautiful weather. The girls had such a great time meeting all the Princess's we must have spent the first 2 hours just in that part of the park. My Friend Robyn and her daughter Rylee joined us at the park and we all had a great time. We got there right when they opened at 9AM and by 5PM the girls were done. We didn't even stay for the parade. I think Rick was a little disappointed he didn't get to go on as many rides as he would have liked too but you know it really is all about the kids we had fun watching them experience it all. Of course I have to thank my brother Philip he got us in to Disneyland and California adventure for free with some family passes his wife and her sister work for Disney. We probably wouldn't have gone otherwise the price for one day at both parks is so outrageous for our family it would have cost us $356.00 for 8 hours at the park because the girls couldn't handle more so thank you philip. Enjoy the pictures of our free trip to Disneyland. The next installment of our vacation is coming soon.
