In September we...

Were able to use some points to fly to California!  We stayed with some friends there. It was such a fun trip and we loved seeing old friends. This pool was in the backyard of one of our friends.  

We went to the Aquarium of the Pacific which was a pretty amazing place.

At the next's friends place we got to go to Venice Beach.  It was also amazing.  Cathy(my friend) got boogie boards and we all had a blast on those. 

Ridge actually loved the sand more than the water.  He loves rolling around in anything like that; dirt, rocks, sand. 

We also went to Santa Monica Pier and road the rides.  We got bracelets which was our kids first experience with unlimited rides.  Needless to say they loved that too. Overall, it was a great trip, probably one of the most tiring trips I've ever taken, but still so fun.  And we didn't have to do Disneyland to have an awesome time.  :)
This was at the top of the Ferris wheel .

Kade did soccer 

This was at a local farm where a bunch of local farmers get together and do a festival.

Last but not least, Landon learned how to ride a bike without training wheels.  He actually learned while we were in glacier park, but we didn't have a bike that fit him for a while when we got back home.  He picked it back up pretty good though.

How fun!! And awesome you got to see Cathy! I keep forgetting to tell you that Jessica Cowgill Withers was in our ward down here before they moved back up to Idaho a few years ago. I saw a pic on Facebook awhile ago that you and Cathy were tagged in, you guys were roommates? I didn't know her very well, but wish I would have known that you guys knew each other while she was here! Small world, huh?
