California Trip

A few weeks ago, my family went on vacation to California to see my grandparents.  It was too expensive for Chase to go too and I sure missed him the entire time.  It was Lucy's first time on an airplane and she did awesome!  I don't know what parents did before portable DVD players because ours was a lifesaver.  Frozen is Lucy's kryptonite and will keep her immobile throughout the whole movie.  Even being on a plane for the first time was not enough to distract her from her favorite movie.
 When we got to Oakland, we drove over to Muir Woods to see the redwoods!  It was really fun and they even had a boardwalk trail throughout the whole thing which made pushing a stroller a whole lot easier.

These trees were massive! We felt like we had been shrunk.

Lucy had a good time too.

It was so pretty.  I couldn't stop taking pictures.

Our next adventure was at one of my favorite places to be........ the BEACH.  It was pretty cold and windy that day and that was kind of a bummer, but we still had a good time and it was another first for Lucy. 

Dad loves to have Lucy and show her around.  He usually has her the entire time if he can help it!  She loves her grandpa!

She didn't like the beach as well as I'd hoped.  She wouldn't let me put her down and the sand on her feet really freaked her out! As long as she was on the blanket she would touch the sand with her fingers but when I tried to put her down on the sand, she threw a fit. 

We also walked out on the boardwalk that day. 

A vacation to see grandma and grandpa would not be complete without a shopping trip in Solvang.  Its a fun little Dutch shopping place that we like to explore.  It was really fun to get out and shop with grandma and grandpa. We always have to stop and get an ├ęclair.  I don't know why I didn't get a picture with everyone.  Camerawoman fail.

I saved the best picture for last.
