California: part 2

We are home after a fun week in California. It was a great trip. We hung out with friends, shopped, played on the beach and visited different playgrounds. It's good to be home though and back to our old routine. We are so happy we were able to join Jason on his business trip, but we're hoping he'll be traveling least for a while.

Here are some more pictures of our time in CA taken by my friend Nicole...

He's yelling "HELLO!" in this picture.

On our way to the beach.
This kid LOVES sand. We are currently building a sandbox here at home.

Getting ready to let his feet touch the ocean.

He fell in - it was bound to happen.
We enjoyed dinner with some of our best friends

After a day of shopping, the beach and dinner with friends - he passed out!

I was able to change him into pj's without waking him up - first time that's happened.

    LOVE the beach shots. LOVE his cute (and big boy!). Cannot believe you could change him into PJs without waking him up??!!...that is one tired boy!

  2. Audrey says:

    Love the outfit... love X's expression in the first shot... LOVE the passed out picture at the end! So glad your family had fun!!

  3. Grace says:

    He looks so happy playing at the beach! I love it!

  4. Heidi and Jason says:

    Looks like a great trip!!!! He is so cute at the beach. A person needs to fall in at their first visit to the ocean. He is so cute in his shorts and hat!

  5. kelly says:

    Awww, great photos of your time in California! I also love his beach outfit but I have to say that I totally love that shot of him passed out on his daddy's shoulder. Those lashes!! OMG. And him passed out on the bed - so adorable. Welcome home!

    i love every single picture! that last one is a hoot! i love when they are so tired like that - but it doesn't happen often! so glad you are home!

  7. Kelly says:

    Love the beach photos - he looks like he was having a blast! So glad you had a nice trip.

  8. Christine says:

    Great photos of X!! They're all to die for but I especially love that first one! Great expression.

    I agree with the others, he's rocking that outfit... love it!

    But my favorite part is how you got him dressed into PJs without him waking up. I'm practically green with envy.

  9. Michelle says:

    Oh, the beach looks wonderful. We are headed to Florida in a few days and I cannot wait to hit the sand. Looks like you had a wonderful time.

  10. Bekah says:

    I love all of these pictures, but the first one is just fantastic! It looks like you guys had a great time! I love how pooped he is after having so much fun. He is a stylin little dude!

  11. Birdie says:

    What a great time! Wait - Are you sure those beach photos aren't from a magazine? They are beautiful snapshots of what family fun in the sun should be.

  12. Kara says:

    Wow! Those pictures were amazing! It looks like you had a great time, and X seemed to really enjoy himself.

  13. Christine says:

    Looks like a great time in CA! I love the pics of X playing at the beach. He looks so cute! Welcome home!

  14. Colleen says:

    What a great trip you guys had! I just love all of the beach photos and that last photo is so darn cute! He looks like he is out like a light! I've only once gotten Noah changed into pj's while asleep too. ( he fell asleep pretty much "in" his spaghetti at dinner time and I even got all of the sauce off of him without waking up too! )

  15. BrandiB says:

    I'm sure that you are glad to be home, but those pictures look like you guys had so much fun! X looks so handsome!

  16. Troy and Becky says:

    Great pictures!! X is one handsome little guy!

  17. Kimberly and Ed says:

    Love all of the photos, especially the ones of X at the beach. It looks like you had a fun week in CA:)

    I love all these shots...from him running around the beach in his cute duds, to falling asleep on the way home.
    BTW, Gabe wants IN on the Hammer sand box this summer 🙂
