Ray and Stevie -July visit

AHHHHHH! These are my nephews Steven and Ray. They live in Cali with their Dad and have for the past 2 years now, so when they come and visit we celebrate!!! Man are they grown up! I remember when they were just little. They are such great young men and I am so proud of the men they are! I love them and happy I got so see them! So while we were in SLC we had a game night, paint balling, BBQ with a water fight, and lots of fun! I love my family!!!!

I don't know what is going on here......Maybe trying to dry off after a major water fight!!!
The water fight instigator!

So let me explain this WT event going on! My little cuz wants to go paint balling but wanted to know how bad it would hurt when she got hit. So Jon shot her- in full get up of course! Yup some good ol fun going on here!
Ok we just can't hide it! SO Ray gave this shirt to Dawson years ago- Dawson loves it and wears it all the time for jammies. I think Ray has missed the shirt!
Dawson and Ray- any similarities???

We went to California over the 4th of July. We wanted to spend time at the beach and have the kids experience what we did growing up- Fireworks over the ocean! Nothing compares to that! It is my favorite thing! So I could break it down day by day but basically we went to the beach every day. We also hit up an Angels game, had dinner with some old friends, hung out with Uncle Tay Tay and went to the aquarium. It was honestly a great vacation. Normally you come home from a vacation with kids and feel like you need a vacation from your vacation. This one however was really fun and relaxing. Not only are my kids at great ages but honestly, what tops a day at the beach? Not a whole lot!

1st day at the beach-Seal beach. Day 2-more beach. Sunset beach
Here is our go at sand castles. Not much but the kids LOVED it!

Rest time on their adorable towels my friend made them! Thanks Sundi!
Dinner at Huntington Beach with some great friends and their kiddos

That night Angels game!!!!!

We had a fantastic time at the game! Our seats were AMAZING!!!

4th of July

Tay came up from San Diego to hang out with us on the 4th. We started our day off by heading to the California Pizza Kitchen followed by a movie-Toy Story 3 in 3D. That night we hit up the aquarium and then the fireworks!!!!
