Home Sweet Home California!!
WARNING: Long Post Below!!!
Jesse and I were able to fly back to my home town for five six days and visit with my brother and his family and some of my friends. We were joking that it felt like marathon dates with some of our friends because we were trying to cram soo many activities with each person all in day! I love getting to spend time with my nephews any chance I get and this trip we got to do a lot of fun things with them. It is amazing how fast they grow up and how old they think you are!! Luckily the same day we arrived we got to hit not one but two pools for some swimming and diving festivities with the neighbors and then to a great little Thai restaurant down the road.
THE GUYS WATCHING THE BOOB TUBE
We got to do a little pottery decorating in with Nicole. My sister-in-law now has a lovely platter from Jesse and a camping mug from me. Then we went to Sushi at one of the best places called Makuni's.
NICOLE, ME & JESSE'S ART WORK
Katie, Jesse and I went to lunch, bowling, mini golf, the movies and then pizza all in one very hot and smoky day!! I think Katie and I spent more time hanging out in the water features on the course than actually golfing!!
Then we got to go boating in the good ole' Grasshopper who was looking smashing in his lovely green paint for the remaining four days that we were there.
JUST A FEW BOATING MOMENTS
Jessica and the boys returned from Tahoe where they were visiting my parents to some more sushi and another fantastic place!! Then we got to hit up this amazing pizza place called John's Incredible Pizza which is a 5 star Chucky Cheese! After some fun and crazy pizza flavors, the two most interesting were the mac & cheese pizza or the peanut butter & pepperoni pizza, we hit the arcade games and were able to rack up over 2,000 tickets for my nephews to purchase a lovely lava lamp and some smaller prizes.
JESSE AND MASON SHOOTIN' EM UP
ALL THE FUN PRIZES
There are even several fair rides like bumper cars, a small roller coaster and this crazy ride called Twister which made me want to hurl (that takes a lot of spinning to get me there)!!!
Jessica was gracious enough to not only cut both Jesse and I's hair but to color both of ours as well!! I am very lucky to have such an amazingly talented sister-in-law whom I can trust with my precious head of hair. I am not very picky about most things but when it comes to my hair I am a bit paranoid.
OUR LOVELY DO'S IN PROCESS
The last day were went to this fun little deli with HUGE sandwiches called Sundance, made me smile because I love Sundance, then went mini golfing indoors at this crazy glow in the dark place that is full of monsters!!
Then to top it all off Mason lost his tooth on the way back just in time for all of us to witness before we headed off to the Olive family reunion!!
What a great trip!!
