We went to the Dinosaur Museum. Here Lou is growling like a T-Rex.
I said "Say Cheese" and she did and then wouldn't stop saying cheese.We went to the demolition derby and Lou loved it when the cars would crash into each other she would throw her arms in the air.
We took Lou to Gardner Village to ride the horses since every time she See's a horse she gets so excited. Well the second I sat her on one she freaked out and started screaming so we went to the petting zoo instead. We had better luck in there.
We worked in our yard.
And we went to the Living Planet Aquarium about a million times. She absolutely loves it. She calls the sting rays the "touch ems" because she always wants to touch em.
This was a special 4th of July. Mikes grandpa that served in the navy during World War II died in June. So Mikes whole family made a little float in Honor of him for the parade in his town. The parade he went to every year. The great grand kids all wore shirts with Buds picture on it. As we walked the parade route it was really emotional. People would stand up and clap for our sweet little grandpa who served his country and community so well.
Playing with glow sticks before the fireworks started.
Mike and I went to California for my cousins wedding and decided to make a real vacation out of it. We went Kayaking through some caves at La Jolla. It was really scary. There were HUGE Sea Lions that would swim right under our kayak. Then as we are paddling back to shore our guide say look down. I regretfully did only to see 6 foot tiger shark swimming all around us. Our guide said they aren't aggressive but whatever they are still sharks and I am freakin.
We also took a boat out to Catalina Island to do a little scuba diving. It was really beautiful. Our under water camera was just a little disposable so the color isn't great. We were swimming through giant kelp forest that where 50 feet tall. It was really green and beautiful.
We also went to Six Flags which was just crazy. But we had a really good time.
Last but definitely not least the Wedding at the San Diego Temple. Wow it is such a beautiful Temple. I was excited to get a chance to go back. Their Sealer was wonderful and said a few things I will never forget. I left there with such a love for all my relatives. For all those that have gone before and for all those who are on there way. It really is amazing how we are all linked together. It is easier to love a stranger after going to the Temple. It makes me remember that they are my brothers and sisters and we are all doing our best to make it through this life.
Good Bye Summer!
