Summer vacation is officially over :(

Well, we had a great summer! Vacations, camps and just hanging out. Today is the first day of school. Mady is a Freshman, which means she's up at the high school with dad. She is very excited. Ari is in 3rd grade. As you can tell, she is a fan of tinker bell...anything Disney actually. Aus is counting down the days until she moves out. Sept. 3 is the big date. It's weird for her to be home with just mom while dad, mady and ari all at school

Gotta love vacation!

Our family vacation to California was a lot of fun. We visitied many cool cities, beaches and attractions. Just a few pictures of our vacation.

Los Angeles temple- it is very beautiful! The temple sits right on top of a hill making it visible from the highway also.
We stopped in Anaheim for an Angels game. Baseball games are a fun tradition associated with our family trips every year. We try to hit a game on our vacations. The Angels played the Indians...and sadly lost, but the game was so much fun, and cooler than NV.
On one of our many stops to a variety of different beaches, Ari was dancing for us.
We stopped at a beach in Carmel, CA and the water was very violent. the waves all of a sudden came out of no where. Matt was playing "tag".
