Fun in Cali!

I was able to go home to California for a couple weeks while Steve went to Wisconsin for work. I had such a great time seeing family and friends and doing lots of fun stuff! The only thing missing was Steve! I spent the first couple days I was there in Newport Beach with my friend Rachel. I have missed her so much and it was great to see her, Willie and baby Myles! We went shopping at Fashion Island, had sushi, did hair, got manicures, went for a morning walk, and ate lots of frozen yogurt! It was the greatest! Then I spent the next day of my trip with Steve's parents in Yorba Linda. My mother-in-law and I played all day looking at model homes, eating ColdStone, seeing Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, and getting pedicures. It was fun! Then I spent the rest of my trip home in San Diego with my family. We had 10 days of fun- It was the best! I got to see cousins visiting from Utah, celebrate Mark's birthday, scrapbook with Mom, Happy Yogurt!, make lots of beach trips, snorkel in La Jolla Cove, bike rides around the lake with Mom, visit Jen & Shanti, kick it it Esco with Mark, & Danny, got to go to church in Escondido and see lots of old friends, Petersen's Donuts (of course!), Belmont Park roller coaster, Coronado Beach, girl's movie nights with Mom, I even got my teeth cleaned at my uncle's dental office while I was there and visited with Dr. Baker too! It was such a great trip! I just loved being able to be "home" again. I have the best family and I miss them already. Thank you guys for making me so happy! Hope to see you soon! Love you!

So I was able to come to California for an unexpected visit!! Steve had to go to Wisconsin for a couple weeks to work at a dental clinic there so I took advantage and made a trip to Cali! I am loving being at home in San Diego with my family right now. I am having a great time being with family, friends, celebrating Mark's b-day, snorkeling, beach, Happy Yogurt, scrapbooking with Mom, just loving being in San Diego really is home! I miss it! I will post pictures when I get back to Kentucky. San Diego is my favorite!
