California Dreamin

As the snow began to fall we headed South to warmer weather. We started our visit with my Aunt and Uncle in St. George a day early as a winter storm headed in. The kids could not get enough of their dog and loved the time there. Ronny and I had a good visit with my relatives (so sad to have missed Skyle though). Charley however had a hard time with the cat and was happy to get some much needed allergy medicine (I forgot about the cat, oops!). The next morning we stopped over at my Grandmother's house for a few minutes. I say few because that's all the boys could handle, they were ready for the sun down South!

We made it to Anaheim and checked into our hotel Saturday afternoon and headed over to Irvine to visit some good friends from college. It was even warm enough for a swim so the the kids took a dip in the pool with their friends. (I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of our time there.) The next day we headed to church with them and I for the first time had to answer the question, "Where are you visiting from" as Utah. I don't know why that was so hard for me. Go figure. After church we headed just down the road to visit Uncle James, Aunt Anjanette, and baby Jackson. We had fun at the park and a yummy dinner! So much fun and some much needed R&R especially with the Disney mania starting the next day! Had we had one more day we would have visited my great cousins in LA. We will have to catch them next time!

Sounds like you had a great time! Wish I was in St. George when you passed by.

Four years of living in Utah and I still answer with "Well, we're both from California, but we recently moved to Utah." Guess you can take the girl out of California, but you can never take the California out of the girl!
