In December we went to California to visit our families for the first time in many years. First we went to my Dad's house. Three of the children had never been to my Dad's house, the house that I grew up in. They had a great time climbing trees, eating fruit and just hanging out. My Dad also arranged to have SAM (Super Awesome Mom the Step Mom who raised me from late Elementary-College) come over for dinner with her husband Ivan one day. My Dad also took us to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Museum & The Wild Animal Park. Grandma & Grandpa also bought an ostrich egg because Parker really wanted one and we ate it one day for breakfast. The ostrich egg was a true homeschool science event!We are so grateful and truly blessed to have my Grandpa & Grandma (Evangeline, who unfortunately is not in any of the pictures) they are very kind and generous.
The next stop was in Sacramento to visit with Wayne's parents & brother. We stayed at Wayne's Mom's house and the girls got to spend lots time with their little second cousins & big first cousins. We had lots of fun adventures in Sacramento we went to Sutter's Fort, McKinley Park and to look at Christmas lights. We also took the kids to San Francisco to show them the 'highlights' (Trolley Cars, Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Golden Gate Bridge & Lombard Street),  of the city & to Berkeley to pick up some Cal gear for Mama and the crew!

We made many very wonderful memories on this trip and we are looking forward to going back to visit everyone again in a couple of years. And we hope in the meantime that maybe some of them can mosey on out to Texas!
