Sounds like a fun trip to Cali. cute pictures too :) I want to take a roadtrip there. I think the dogs & bailee would love the beach.

Shanna said...

I love this post! Our pics are the best! I ant believe we survived the drive home...it was so loooooooong! Next trip...Seattle part 2! Plan on it!

Shanna said...

I am really sad about your night last night...no fun! Glad you got it figured out tho!
Anyhooooo...i was sitting here just now thinking about our trip and I remembered a couple of things you forgot to mention in your post. First off I'd like to mention that my favirite line from the trip came as we were driving through the hell that is Nevada and you said..."I can see why people say Utah is so pretty." You said it calmly, like it was quite the revelation...i greatly enjoyed it!
I would also like to remind you of banana hammock and the female happy trail. Bahahaha!
Love, Channa.

Your pics are a lot brighter than mine...I am jealous. How did you do this? You still owe me a lesson on photoshop.

To remind you, the female happy trail was that girl lying on the beach and it looked like a small animal was curled up on her abdomen. Please tell me you remember this! I still have nightmares!
