Joshua Tree. One big playground for kids and adults alike!
O and I got left behind when they had to go climb higher.
Family tree, and about the only shade around on this blazing day.
Jarom and Bella taking their Jr. Rangers oaths very serious.
As you can imagine we were ready for the beach, but it was a good 25 degrees cooler here. Didn't stop them.
But the breeze was plenty cool for me.
At our favorite campsite at Point Mugu, we were so pleased to get the same site as last year. Eating our lunch that we picked up from the Claremont farmers market.
Took a nice family shower during an earthquake. The kids picked out some coloring books and books from the local dollar store. A little storm came in and so did we. It was fun though, no messy camp fire. Instead we got to read a fun star book that glows in the dark and has all the constellations' background stories. So we got to read about Orion, and then we read our own astrological signs.
Good morning buckwheat!
Bella's birthday. They can't wait to see what's in those gifts!
My lovely little Bell is 5!
Wanted to try on her new dress.
And there she is in all her princess glory!
Disneyland main street
My family. I think this is the only whole family shot we got the whole trip.
The boys met Goofy while Bell and I went to meet some princesses!
Bella was so excited but nervous to meet them, it was funny to watch. You can tell she was pretty stiff.
And here is the favorite, all of our dreams have come true.
Teacups with my Birthday gal
Daddy acting like he is dying!
Bella leaving like royalty. She and Oey passed out the moment we walked out of the park!
Calico here we come!!
you're coming with me
My girl and her new friend Rosa
a house made out of bottles
Loving learning and walking through history with the kids.
It's weird that people lived down here, and got filthy rich here!
A baggy of fool's gold.
Bella's birthday volcano in the MGM at the Rain Forest Cafe! A tradition we all love.
Happy critters. They won treats by singing into the microphone at the M&M factory. Here are their singing videos:
