Here is our trip to California in pictures... And a few words. Ryan was pretty tired at this point and didn't give a hoot about the ocean. We drove down to Cali. with my mom and stayed in Las Vegas to break up the trip for Ryan. He did very well on the drive and slept much of the way. Mike was wonderful and stay in the back with Ryan the whole trip and kept him happy.

Our first little family picture at the ocean. Oh, and I got a hair cut which I love.

On Saturday, we went to the Wild Animal Park. Super cool! It reminded me of Africa.
Here's Lexi.

Ryan and I checkin' out the bird.

At the wild animal park they have a bus tour you get on that takes you to see all the animals. It's basically like going on a Safari.

On Sunday, after church we headed back to the beach. Once, we put him on the sand he promptly picked up a handful of sand and stuffed it in his mouth.

Lexi was wanting to go home at this point and take a nap.

This is Lexi molding the butterfly I painted on her face. The other side was a unicorn (I didn't take a picture of it b/c I don't know how to paint unicorns).
The worst of the trip was Ryan not taking a nap for one whole day. He maybe slept for 20 minutes. This has never happened to him. Needless to say he went to bed REALLY early that night!
For Valentine's Day, Mike and I celebrated on Saturday and went out to a Thai restaurant. We have really liked Thai food lately. It was nice to get out just by ourselves as that very rarely happens now. Thanks for babysitting Mom.

Now for Alex's Birthday! My nephew Alex Welch, turned 13 yesterday! I can't believe it, it seems like just a few years ago he was so little and fat-- now he's taller than me! In celebration we ate cake, and opened gifts. In this picture I'm standing on my tip toes, but I promise he really is taller.

Brittany - I love the haircut and you look gorgeous! How fun for you guys to go to CA - when did you go for and for how long?

I LOVE your haircut! I'm glad you had a nice trip. I miss the beach - dreaming of going back to Newport Oregon someday.

Looks like I missed an awesome trip! Someday we will be able to join y'all there. Your hair looks great! You got some great pics. Love the pics of Lexi (the crying and the butterfly). I can't believe how much she looks just like Pink.
See you soonish (I hope)! Of course, you are always welcome to come here. Bring Ryan and I'll fix any sleep issues he has!
