What a fantastic trip to California! I couldn't decide what pictures to post, so these are just a few of my favs! I couldn't have asked for a better three day weekend! Chad and I took Arlin out to meet my Dad, Step-mom, sisters, my brother and my grandparents (and lots of extended family too) for the first time. The Captain got his gold wings today for flying United at the check-in desk... And let me tell you- he deserves them! My little guy was a champ the whole weekend.

And I'm pretty sure he won a place in everyone's heart. Especially my Dad's heart. I still have a smile on my face...they really took to one another. (not that I thought they wouldn't, but it was really something special to watch.) And he's officially "Grandpa" now!

It was a whirl wind weekend, catching up with family, little bit of sight seeing, little bit of R&R at the hotel with my favorite boys, little bit of shopping (Stella totally made out with some goodies- can't wait to give them to her) and lots of sunshine- the weather was beautiful the entire trip.

Glad to be back home and looking forward to another trip to California soon!
