Spring Break-Day 5 & 6

Boo-hoo. We were checking out of our condo and heading home. But first we wanted to check out the pier. It was pretty cool! People were fishing and surfers were surfing. It's just such a fun beach environment.
We had a few more Drumsticks left. Rob said they had to have a dance-off and whoever wins gets to pick first. It was so funny to see them dancing like crazy on the street!
The Pattersons
Us! Sadie still insists on pulling faces.
Oh yeah...isn't he cute? ;)
Spencer didn't want to be in the picture. Angie made sure he didn't have a choice!
The pelican was just sitting there. All the kids wanted a picture with him. Brinley freaked out when he started to spread his wings!
 The bait shop. Lovely.

Then, we had to say our good-byes to the Pattersons and went our separate ways. We were headed to San Bernadino to see Shawn's brother, Kyle. He is in a state hospital there. The timing was perfect and we met up with Melanie (Shawn's sister) and Moe so they could see Kyle too! They were going to Disneyland that week. Kids can't go so I stayed MANY hours with the kids at McDonald's. It wasn't too bad (and it was pretty clean!) but I did get a complaint from a parent about my kids playing guns (which another kid brought). Ugh. I have girls so guns are a whole new thing for me. I wasn't aware that it was such a scary thing. Oh well. But the kids got to see their cousin, Casey, for awhile and they had lots of fun with him.

Moe can always get the kids laughing.
Then, we headed to Vegas to stay the night at Shawn's brother's house. Cambree did do the zip line in their backyard like she said she would! 
The next morning, Sarah kept her kids home from school for a little bit so they could all play together. Sarah teaches several aerobics classes and I wanted to go with her to try Body Pump. It's kind of a weight lifting class. I really liked it and it was fun to see Sarah teach.
I forgot to get a picture before my shower...but I'm still red-faced and hot. It doesn't take much!
Then, we hopped in the car and headed home! We got back around 7:00. My mom met me in Lehi so I could get Easton from her. I was so excited to see him! He was happy to see us too! He had learned a couple new words and was particular about wearing his jacket everywhere we or cold. Baths were traumatic. I don't know what happened there. But other than that, he was happy and healthy! Thanks, mom!!!
And that's our trip! Sorry for the long saga but we don't go on vacation much. It was so fun and I just had to document everything!

Yeah, the gun thing is ridiculous. Kids are automatically suspended from school for pretending to shoot with their hand and not when they are actually being dangerous by throwing chairs at other students or the teacher! You were also in Cali which is very liberal.
Looks like a fun vacation!
