Driving down the 101, Caaalifornia here we come...

I know, I'm a total nerd for starting the post with the OC theme song. Unfortunately, I had it stuck in my head ALL weekend. I headed down to Orange County to visit my favorite (formerly SLO) family. It was so nice to get away and enjoy my sweet time with them. The boys are SO big! I got into Ontario on Saturday morning, and my parents came up Saturday night. We just bbqd and hung out, it was nice to see them! On Sunday, we went to church, and I had lunch with some college friends I hadn't seen in awhile. That night, I taught(ish) them how to play Settler of Catan. Someone *cough cough* got a little obsessed with their roads and settlements, so we played about 5 more times before I left. So much fun, though. On Monday we went to Knotts Berry Farm. I hadn't been there in SO long, so it was a fun treat! Tuesday we relaxed and then headed to the airport. It was truely awesome. I was sooo sad to be back and go to work. :) Enjoy the tons of pictures to come. :)
This is the ride where you have to work to make it move. Doesn't sound like fun to me! :)

We were a little bored while waiting for the roller coaster.

I can't believe Smiley is almost 5. That is ancient in kid years. And I didn't know you knew how to play Settlers. And now they know. I am restraining myself from jumping up and down right now. I freaking love that game. And I'm planning a tournament in SJ actually, so, you shoulc keep Sunday after thanksgiving open in case it happens that day.This comment just turned into 90% email content. Sorry. Love you. Love the pictures.

Dang those boys are CUTE! We miss you already. I have some cute photos, too, but I'm having trouble getting them off the camera. Sigh. Technology, who can master it?

I TOLD you Christy would love that game. It's got NERD written all over it and now WE'RE ALL officially NERDS!
