Yes, I know we have been back from our trip for almost a week, but well... we've been busy!
We left for California on a Friday night. We put the kids in pjs so the flight would be comfortable and we wouldn't have to mess with changing clothes once we got to Jody and Sonya's. They were as excited as they were adorable!
But we all know that best laid plans are just plans. Mother Nature had a different idea for our travel times and delayed our CS flight by 2 hours which meant we missed our connecting flight from Houston to California. Ryan found us a couple of rooms at the LaQuinta next to the Houston airport so when our 8am flight rolled around we wouldn't so exhausted. Everyone was happy and content and ready to be there!
Jody, Sonya and Owen met us at the airport and drove us directly to our favorite place in Norco - the Famous 6th Street Deli (that they own). Somehow GiGi always ends up surrounded by the kids.
We ate an amazing lunch, laughed, caught up and just soaked in the feeling of being with family.
The afternoon was just how I like them to be - slow and easy. With nothing on our agenda and all the time in the world to do it.
The weather was GORGEOUS so we played outside...
made new friends...
We couldn't talk Emmy or Landry into getting on the horses, but they were both okay with patting them.
Our sweet set of cousins ready to tackle the week ahead!
Radley decided he wanted to ride the horse but settled on just sitting still (which he was quickly relieved about).
And then we ate some more, laughed some more, and got ready for the next few days ahead....
