California trip and Yakima Arbor Festival

I thought I'd post some pictures from our California trip.  We had an awesome two weeks of fun, and a lot of driving.  The kids did great, and we loved seeing Alan's sisters Amiee and her family, and Angela.

Here we are at the Mormon Battalion in San Diego.  If you've never been you should.  It's free, and really fun.  The kids panned for gold and had an awesome time.

While we were in Long Beach we went to the Aquarium of the was an aquarium alright.

We had so much fun with the House's.  

 Jane loved eating the sand....I tried it, it's not that great!

 We went to Cabrillo and had fun dressing up in armor

 Next we headed to Lake Tahoe to visit Angela.  It was BEAUTIFUL and great to hangout with her.

 We met Travis, and think he's great.

The kids survived a hike that ended with a beautiful view of Lake Tahoe.  It was well worth it.

 I think all the swimming was the kids favorite part of the whole vacation!

This weekend we went to the Arbor Festival here in Yakima.  We look forward to it each year.

All the kids were terrified of Smokey the Bear, but like the great parents we are we forced them to stand by him for a picture!

 We love having Jeff, Nichole and family living so close.

Happy Arbor Day!

It looks like you had such a fun trip!! I love all the pictures! I miss the cute kiddos! Jane especially is looking all old! Is she wearing one of Macey's old shirts? It looks familiar. Your bangs look great!
