In September we took a trip down to Southern California and spent a week with some of our friends in a beach house in Newport. It was an awesome week and the weather was incredible!
I am definitely a sucker for an hour plane ride over 12 hours in the car!
Some of the things we did in Newport:
Fire pit one night with s'mores!
Took a ferry ride to Balboa Island!
Me and my little man!
"Health, happiness, & good fortune to all who sit here." - big fan of that!
I had to document - Tallie did not let that sippy cup out of her hand the entire trip it was so funny! Also he hair was so curly with the humidity, too cute!
We got to spend some time with Spencer's cousins who live in Newport Beach. It was great to see the Gneiting's, and they were so hospitable. They let us borrow their pack n' play and all of their beach stuff!
Walks and bike rides on the boardwalk were definitely higlights!
Look at these happy cute girls!
Lance and his buddy Owen on the pier!
We celebrated Ella's birthday one night at this awesome restaurant! They made balloon animals for all the kids and made a big production of her birthday, it was a blast!
Tallie and Ella all ready to go to church!
Um yes... Spence and Blake paid for a foot massage..... and if you were wondering that is a cup of ice cream clenched between Speen's fists!
We stayed in an incredible beach house that was stocked with everything you would need for fun including this tandum bike!
Tallie loved riding shot gun on the single bike, and in back was a bike carrier for two other kids!
