These pictures are a bit out of order. These two are from our stop in El Cerrito, California, to visit Aunt Molly, Uncle Darren, and brand-new-cousin Benjamin. We were only able to stay for one night, but we had a blast at their house. Benjamin is incredibly adorable (pictures speak for themselves!) and the kids loved their backyard hammock.

back to life, back to reality

Back from our two week vacation. We drove to California. That's right - DROVE - from Indiana. In addition to our normal 2 adults + 3 kids, we took my mom along, making us a big party of six. We avoided any major meltdowns, illnesses, injuries, or car problems. We did spend a few hours in colorful Gallup, New Mexico, getting an oil change on the way back. Learned a lot about life on the Navajo reservation and what it feels like to be the racial minority.

The best parts of our trip were the times we spent with family. In Utah, we saw David's brother Jamie's family, though Jamie himself wasn't there. The kids were so happy to see cousins! I also have a cousin in Salt Lake and we were able to go out to dinner with her and her family. In Nevada, we visited David's sister Bethany and her family, and then on to San Francisco to visit sister Molly and her family. In Reno and Frisco both we were able to meet new cousins Bella and Benjamin. Then we went to southern California…
