Right after school let out in June, we left our youngest in trusted hands & set off for a family vacation! We spent the night with my parents, then went on to St. George the next day. We had a BBQ with old & new friends, did a little shopping, and played in the pool. We flew with our friend to Santa Monica on Monday. We stayed in his home right on the beach. It really was a dream come true! We visited the Promanade, the Pier, the Beach, an aquarium, met a celebrity!, and drove around Hollywood & Beverly Hills. We drove a fancy sports car & ate sushi. We went to Disneyland for a couple days to the kids' utter joy! We had a blast and a full vacation of "firsts". We are so grateful to our dear friends who have shared so much with our family and provided us with opportunities we'd never otherwise have in a lifetime! How did we get so lucky????
