Yep, I went to California this past weekend for 24 hours. We did 12 family photo shoots in two different locations and didn't finish until the sun was almost down. We had a great time and are currently trying to get all of the pics uploaded so people can view and order off of our new website! Official launch will be coming soon...

Aaron got to see our new brick for the first time.
The newest dwarf, Hungry.We had such a great time. Aaron was like a little kid again running around to get as much candy as he could. His goal was to get enough to give to all our trick-or-treaters so he didn't have to buy any candy. I think he succeeded. While he was running around getting candy, we enjoyed walking on to the Tower of Terror.Happy Halloween!

The next day we went to Sea World.
We rode the rollar coaster, and got stuck while riding it a second time.
On Sunday we spent time at the new beach house. We've spent many trips staying in the little old green house that was in this same spot. Then my aunt and uncle tore it down and built this beautiful new house. We had a BBQ on the roof and spent the afternoon enjoying our view of the beach.
On Monday we went to Disneyland! I saw the brick that Aaron got me for Christmas for the first time. It only took us a minute to find it and we made sure to walk by it a few more times while we went between Disneyland and California Adventure.
We ended the day with the electrical parade. It is a fabulous parade, and was extra fun for us to see because we rarely see it (they only do it during the summer and we can't go most of the summer).
It was a great trip, and the start of my four in four (four trips to Cali in four months). Crazy I know, but I have different reasons for all of them.

I think the thing that impressed me most about this time was thinking about how incredibly courageous and faithful these pioneers were. They knew when they set out that it wouldn't be easy and they might lose loved ones, but they were willing to go anyway. This is one of my favorite quotes about the handcart companies:
