FC: Spring Break | 2012
1: "Only love can be divided endlessly, and still not diminish." - Anne Morrow Lindbergh | For Spring Break we went to California. We met cousin Jeff Friedman and his family and spent two full days with them. Jeff and his wife,Joanna, have twins, too--Samantha and Ella. After getting acquainted the first day, we went to dinner at In-n-Out. We hung out at our motel with them and Pa and Grandma Kathi. Then Tim and I went to meet Tim's long-time friend, Billy Z. and his new wife for dinner. We got "home" late, but it was so nice to see them. The next day we went to Disneyland. Disney was a blast! We packed the day full with rides and didn't have to wait in any lines. We met Jeff, Joanna and the girls for lunch and then continued our fun until the evening parade. Sam got picked as a Jedi-in-Training and Aiva got picked to start off the Tiki-Room's bird performance. It was so exciting to see them front and center. They both handled all the attention beautifully! The next day we went to the aquarium. Tim and I got in free since it was teacher-appreciation month. Our favorite part was the bird terrarium. The last morning we went to the beach and had so much fun running around in the cold surf. Any day at the beach is a good day!
