Pictures from California Visit

Here are pictures from our trip to California. We had a wonderful time! It's just too bad that's it's over.

Amy, Ella and cousin Maggie having fun on Grandma's bed.

Henry wearing earphones that he found somewhere in Grandma's room.

Ella Bella in a very good mood.

Sherri, Chase and Anna came up from Huntington Beach for a visit. Anna is 6 months older than Ella and Chase is 6 months older than Henry.

Chase and Henry got along really well, which was exciting to me because I'm determined that one day they will be roommates and great friends in college. :)

Ella and Henry swinging at the park by Avila Beach.

Grandpa helping Ella get warm at that same park.

Adam, Amy, Henry and Ella at Avila Beach. Unfortunately this was our only effort to get to the beach. Henry LOVED it. He thought it was great.

Henry loves climbing in things and will even dump everything out in order to do so...I believe Grandma usually keep stuffed animals in this cradle.

Ella and her cute cousin, Will. They are only 3 weeks apart in age.

Adam and Ella on Christmas Eve.

Grandma and Ella on Christmas. Ella is wearing her cute new little hat from her Auntie Kate.

Amy and Adam ice skating on Christmas day up in Atascadero.
The end!

The kids are growing too fast! I wish Henry and Jake could play together. I'm sure they'd have a blast! Glad you all look great!

In some of those pictures Ella actually looks like Henry, especially from a distance.

I wish it was me that got to go ice skating. By the way, how was it cold enough to freeze ice outside? Also, look at the grass. What is that. I thought the ground was white in winter. It is here, you know.

Yeah, I agree withi Dad -- flip flops, bare feet, sunshine -- what a great thing to see at Christmas time!
The photos are wonderful. I was definitely surprised to see how much Ella had changed. She is now a little person more than a baby.
Despite the fun you had, we are glad you are back.
