Fun in the CA sun

Amelia and I left dad at home and jumped a flight to San Diego for a week with the Mays. With non-stop Dora the Explorer (which I hate, but Amelia seems to love) on the plane, the week started out on a high note.
Packed into everything we did, we couldn't leave out a beach day. Every ten minutes or so Amelia would realize that it was sand under her feet and get really upset. Then she would go back to building sand castles or playing the waves.
Gracey and Amelia played so well together! The first words out of their mouths each morning: "Where's Gracey/Amelia?" At the beach, the pool, the playground, smishing playdough, reading books, or just running round, they had such a great time.

The adults escaped the kiddies one night to see Rob's office with its gorgeous ocean views, eat the most mouth watering sushi anywhere, and take in a movie. ("That's a lot of thinking for a polar bear..")

No trip to SoCal would be complete without a dip into Disneyland! Felicity's sisters and little ones joined us in Anaheim and we plowed through the Parks four strollers deep. (Which was a definite challenge during the parades.) And somehow, I took zero photos of the day.
It was hard to say goodbye to California but mostly because of Rob, Felis, Gracey, and Beckham. We miss them already!

Teishi and Amelia, thank you for visiting us at our home. It was SO great to see the girls playing together. We miss you all very much and having you here for the week was our pleasure. We missed Dave, but we"ll get to see him in a few weeks. Love you guys. The May's

Looks so fun! Why we don't get to the beach more often I'll never know. Glad you had a good time!
