So when my parents came to visit us here in California the first time in February (yes, I'm catching up), we spent most of our time outdoors. We went swimming (in the hot tub), hiking, picnicking, and to the beach. We wore everyone out and had a wonderful time. When we weren't outside, Grandma was entertaining the grandkids with the toys she'd brought from her house to share with us while we are in CA.
Paradise Falls there, so I looked up a trail online, printed out a map, and off we went. The first half of the hike was through open hills, covered with desert plants and cactus. We had a never ending refrain of “Ouch!” from Levi because we had emphasized that cactus was OUCH early on in the hike and not to touch it.
I loved that Anna wore a skirt, sparkly necklace, and sunglasses on the hike. She would not let me put her hair in a ponytail either.
Anna thought it was pretty funny how her whole body could fit inside Mama's jacket!
Being silly with all that HAIR!
Snuggling with Grandpa. Levi LOVES his Grandpa's (rightfully so- they are both wonderful!)
