We took a really fun trip to San Diego, California for Spring Break. The really sad part is that I forgot my battery charger and so when my camera died on the first day, that was that. Darn! Anyway, we went to the San Diego Zoo Wild Animal Safari Park, the Beach, Sunset Cliffs, Coronado, San Diego Temple, Mormon Battalion Museum, a showing of "Soul Surfer", Sunset Cliffs, Old Town San Diego, Little Italy, and Sea World. Rich joined us for half of the trip, so that made it extra fun. We got to see Steffi run at Mt SAC. The boys played basketball and pool and ping pong and ran, and we just plain had a wonderful time together. I'm so sad that I didn't get pictures. So, I'll have to remember what fun we all had, instead. Here are the boys at the Zoo.
I got to go on a really fun Girl's Trip with my mom and my sisters. We went to Disneyland for a couple of days, hung out together at a hotel, and spent a day with my aunt and her family. It was SO fun to see each other and have such a great time together. This is me with DeeAnn. I don't get to see her very often because she lives so far away, so it was such a treat to spend 4 whole days with her! Here I am with Dee and my mom and Mickey! TOWER OF TERROR!!!
I got to go along with Alex and his awesome high school choir on their Tour to San Francisco. Everything was SO much fun! The only bummer was the really LONG bus ride! Other than that, we had a very fun trip. Here is a picture of a giant poster on the wall of the eerie Alcatraz Prison museum. It was a cold, dark, and scary place to be.
A view of Alcatraz Island, from the ferry boat we were traveling on, across a mile and a half of freezing cold water.
Me and Al, outside of a high school, where the choir had just performed.
We went on a fun dinner Cruise! This is me with some of my roommates and new friends.
We got to actually walk across the bridge! It was SO fun! The wind started to blow like crazy and it rained, when we were about halfway across, but it was still so great. Al and a couple of his buddies, Sean and Craig.
We had a fun party for Heather's birthday! We had a little Mexican food and a lot of cake! Heather's family was able to join us as well... even driving through a winter storm to get here. Since it was Mike's birthday, too, they came along for the fun!
Al is 17! It was couple of fun days of celebration for our family. What a blessing our Alex has been in our lives. He has turned in to the most fun teenager. He was surprised to go out to move "Miles" early on his birthday morning, and find a new stereo installed! Now we can hear him as he comes rockin' up the road!
Alex and his Birthday-Buddy, Jan! We have pictures of them together, every year since Al was a tiny little feller. What fun to share a birthday with one of our favorite ladies in the whole world! Al also shares the day with my Grandma, Edith Wells, and my dear Aunt Lorna.
What a perfect day to be born! The Birthday Chair.
Steffi gave Al a fun decal for the back of his car of a Rooster. Very cool idea, Steff!
