Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend we celebrated 3 years in California!  It feels like we have been here longer than that, in a good way.  God's plans are perfect.

To celebrate this and Memorial Day, we did some good all American camping!  We spent 3 nights at Big Basin Redwoods State Park in the Santa Cruz Mtns.  with our friends the Hoffman's.  It was a great weekend, the trees were beautiful, weather great, food and company wonderful.  The only bad thing was the mosquitoes.  The kids and Zac really got eaten up, but only his left leg.  ;)
Keanan worked hard on a fort across the creek
all the kids fit!
On Sunday we went on a 5 mile hike to a lookout point where we could see the ocean.  It was beautiful, and the kids did great.
View from the top - where the ocean meets the sky
we made it!
We had to rest our feet in the creek after the long hike.  Zac even went for a swim!
After coming home today and getting all clean we decided to finish Memorial Day with a roller coaster ride!  Kyla is now tall enough to ride the big coasters at Great America, so tonight she did the grizzly for the first time and loved it!

On a final note: today is also Clover's birthday!  Happy 1st birthday bunny!
