We were very fortunate to spend most of August in Southern California. My friend Julie got married in Thousand Oaks, so we decided to all go and make it our first vacation with just the 4 of us. We started out in Anaheim and went to California Adventure with Mike's mission companion, Frost. We then headed to Thousand Oaks for the wedding. Unfortunately, our camera broke right after we got a few pictures of the girls in the hotel room, so I don't have any pictures from the wedding. (By the way Julie, you looked beautiful!) Before we went to CA, we found out that Mike's family would be in San Diego at the same time as us, so we decided to stay a few extra days and enjoy that time with them. On our way down to San Diego, we stopped in Mission Viejo for the blessing of Jacob R. Mullen, Kurt and Jenn's baby. After San Diego, we still hadn't had enough of Southern California, so we stayed an extra week at Kurt and Jenn's, who were kind enough to let us use their home while they were out of town. We were able to see Jack Johnson in LA the night before we left. What a GREAT way to end a GREAT trip!
