We are back from our short but eventful weekend in Southern CA. Aaron has his mothers side that lives in the L.A area so his mother and two sisters and a brother were flying down for the weekend so we decide to join them. On Saturday Aaron went with Meggna's family and Hali to the L.A. Zoo.
I went to the the swap meet with Colby and Shawnna's family, Teresa (MIL) and Sherry(Grandma). I like going and seeing what others have to sell. I got a few things like socks and some jewelery and and Peter Pan the DVD, the one with real people. It was the first movie Aaron and I saw in theaters together. Colby slept some so I got to spend time getting to know my niece Jordyn, she is going to be two soon. She is so cute and has lots of energy.
After the swap meets we went shopping and got stuff for a Hot dog roast at the beach around 4:20 that afternoon. When we got there the weather was nice but the water was too cold for me to get in all the way. It was nice to see the beach again and all the cousins playing together. I loved having a big fire at the beach. We had chips hot dogs and s'mores yummy!! Hali played in the sand with her cousins until it was cold and dark. Then the cuddled up with with Grandma Bell and did not want to leave.
Sunday we went to church then to the park to see even more family and eat a big lunch/dinner. The kids played in the park too.
On Monday we all went to Disneyland and California Adventure. The parks were all decorated for Halloween.
WE didn't get to see many Disney character but we rode some rides and spent time with family. Hali loved the rides. Hali's expressions were fun to watch when she rode the rides. She loved the ladybug ride in A bugs life and the Airplane ride in Tomorrow Land.
I liked going on rides with Aaron he always makes them fun to be on. I also like going on the airplane ride because we were so close to the fireworks that were going off, it was a great experience.
It was so fun to have family there so we could visit and trade off watching kids. Luckily Hali stayed in Shawnna's stroller most of the time and Colby was either sleeping or walking around close by. Thanks to all who watched my little ones. We left early Tuesday so we could have Aaron get to work. I wish all of our family could be close enough to do this kind of get together more often, we loved it too much!!
