This trip seems to have become a tradition for us these past few years, and one we all look forward to. We really did have a great week, in spite of driving half way there and realizing we forgot the travel crib and stroller. Anyway, we left last Monday morning and arrived in San Diego (my sister, Crystal's house--by the way Crystal, Starr calls you a mom that looks like a teenager -you rock star, you!) by late afternoon. Her son was back in the hospital due to running a fever, but it gave us a chance to go visit him (in shifts) and see where Tates "other home" is. Fortunately, Tate came home the next day and the kids played and played -- they really do have a great time together. We played ROCK BAND alot...but everyone had such a blast. On Wednesday, we drove up near LA and stayed with my favorite Auntie...it was so good to see her, Jim, and my great-Uncle Rod. Aunt Jackie was sooo good to us -- she's the best cook - and so giving....and she made sure we all had foot rubs before we left. Anyway, while there, we spent one day at Knotts Berry Farm (my kids LOVE the roller coasters!). This was Josh's first time riding the rides, and he tried his hardest to keep up with Joseph and Emi in Camp Snoopy (kiddy land). Steve and I would take turns with the 2 older kids and the younger ones. The last day was spent at the Pacific Coast Aquarium -- it was fun to see all the different exhibits and touch the fish -- even Josh was trying. We arrived home Saturday home, just in time to enjoy Easter Sunday.
