Family Beach Pictures

While we were in California, we attempted taking some family pics. It was crazy windy and Anabelle was way more interested in chasing the birds than anything but it was so much fun, and a great memory to have together. Not to mention, it was a beautiful evening. Here's to a family of four in four happy years. I am so blessed.

 We sure loved having Aunt Kristee with us too!

Huntington Beach Getaway

After two of the most horrific and painful weeks of my life (post tonsillectomy and sinus surgery) it was time to head to the beach for some much needed sunshine. Shane's younger sister Kristee came with us and helped out with the kids. Thanks so much we loved having you there Kristee!

The first day we went to our hotel and then went to the Newport Beach Temple. It was beautiful! We went to dinner and then to bed. In the morning Shane woke up early and went to a car show with Gordon and Courtney Cope. Later that day we met them at their families beach house and had a BBQ. Anabelle was so excited to "go to the beach!" after the BBQ and beach time, we went to Fashion Island and shopped and ate at the Cheesecake Factory. Yum. 

The third day we checked into the Hyatt Huntington Beach Hotel and we had an amazing view and room. We loved the pools and Anabelle loved the little water slides! We walked he beach and enjoyed a beautiful sunset.

The fourth day was our anniversary. We spent the day at the beach and then went to Dukes for dinner! It was so yummy and such a fun place to reminisce to the first time we ate there together in Kauai when we were dating. The Hula Pie was amazing. What a perfect anniversary!

Anabelle was thrilled to have two seats to herself on the flight home. She was such a good girl and had all of her things set out and watch Tangled. She was in heaven.
