Trip to California

We headed to California to be there for B's graduation.  I was so glad that Kyle was home and could go with us.  It gave him a chance to see some of the family.  (Our original plan was to have a bit of a reunion so all of the kids could see him, but there were so many conflicts.  It still makes me sad that he hasn't gotten to see so many of them)

When we arrived in California on Thursday, we headed to the baseball field--after all it is THAT TIME OF YEAR and Stephen is coaching ; )

I was so excited when I heard a little voice call out, "Grandma!!!" and I see these two little beauties!!!  So fun.  It felt like forever since I had seen them.

Drew and I headed over to the playground so he could get on the swings and slides.

When the game was over it was time for hugs from the big brother to the little brother!!!  Glad to see each other again.

We went to In-N-Out.  Yummy as ever.  We then headed up to see Stephen and Daphne's new house.  It is lovely.  There is a lot of work to do, but they are working very hard to make it home.

Friday I had to do a long run--7 miles.  Kyle said he would run 4 miles with me, after starting out, he said, "I think I'll do 3 miles".  He did and then I ran the other 4 by myself.  We then ran some errands and then caught up a little later with Stephen and Daphne.  Kyle and B headed to the waterpark--it was a very warm day so I was a little envious ; ) Georgia had a great time playing in the water outside.  (Don't you just love her little headband Grandma brought her ; )

Stephen barbequed chicken and pork tenderloin and we had a lovely dinner together. 

The next day was the graduation.  Everything went well.   

I was happy to have a chance to meet B's girlfriend.  She is a real sweetie.

Stephen and Daph hosted a lovely gathering at their home to celebrate the graduation.  

The food was yummy--I especially loved these:

The next day we all went to Church together before some of us headed to Idaho for our little reunion.  We were so grateful that a good friend came to take some pictures of all of us.

I was very happy to get this picture of Allan and I with these grandkids.


The weekend flew by and it was time to head out for our reunion.  So glad that some of the gang was going with us.  

I can't wait to share all the wonderful pictures from our trip.

Yep, I do love Georgia's headband!

I have never run 7 miles in one day. I don't plan to either, ha!

Those bright green graduation gowns are pretty cool!
