California has everything!

Well, we survived the trip. Barely. 16 hours down and 13 back (in a very clean van) and we all survived. Of course, there was a week in between the down and back, thank goodness! I have to admit, I had a great time. The weather was perfect and the kids were reasonably well behaved. We took about 400 pictures (which is a record for us!) and an hour or two of video. Don't worry, I won't post them all. At least not all at once.

I have to start with Easter because I made Chloe's dress and it actually looks just like the pattern! Of course, the boys have new Easter clothes too, but I didn't make them so they only count a little.

This is the back of Chloe's dress and part of an amazing Easter egg hunt.

What a bunch of hams (and Chloe's Easter dress)!

Okay, enough with the Easter dress. Here are the kids on the back of Grampa's boat (parked in the backyard, incidentally). Please note the sun and lack of snow.

Kids coming down to the dock.

This really was an awesome Easter egg hunt. The kids got buckets full of candy and toys and then they got to go hunt inside and out for more candy-filled eggs. Please note the flowers, bushes, etc and lack of snow.


Here's the best part: after all of that other stuff, they got to go in the dinghy with Grampa and fish eggs out of the harbor (in the backyard)! And still NO SNOW!

Well, I have lots more but the kids are clamoring for the computer so......
