our vacation | california + the beach

So we started in Arizona but the weddings were in California so there was only one way to get there... bum a car off my sweet sister in law and drive the 6-7 hours cutting a significant amount of time off our "vacation". (;  But obviously I wouldn't have it any other way.  And furthermore, the fact that Tricia let us use her car is beyond generous.  Thank you! (and that goes for everyone who switched up their schedules for us... btw, Brody saw that "M" on the mountain and said, "Hey look, for Michigan football!"   Every M he sees, he says that.  Thought my Michigan football family would enjoy that.)

Brody was bored as all get out on the drive but lit up when we told him he'd soon see his cousin Xander.  That first picture was right after, "I do not like this drive!"  haha.  The fact that Tony drove the whole way & we enjoyed by In 'N Out made the drive great.  Brody knew we were going there and said, "hurry up slow pokes, I'm getting hungry!"  (he's seriously awesome.)  When we arrived to our hotel in San Diego we met up with my mom and instantly hightailed it to the beach. Unlike last year where B was a little hesitant, this year he couldn't get enough of the water.  He even liked holding the sandcrabs we found.  That's new.  Even though it was overcast, the water felt great and we had fun!
