This trip had been planned and anticipated for over a year, so the fact that it has already come and gone is astounding!
It all started in Pennsylvania with my parents flying across the country so that my mom could turn around and fly back to California with Tori and me (to assist with all of Tori’s things). The guys remained in Pennsylvania working on our bathrooms – our long-awaited remodel! We’ll blog about that soon.
The girls spent 2.5 days in Red Bluff seeing family and friends before heading south to Central California to see more family and friends. We stayed with Uncle Rob and Aunt Susan (and forgot to get a picture!) and enjoyed our visit. It was so great to see my college roommate, Leslie, and her family, as well! It has been YEARS.
Friday morning we headed to Southern California to show Tori where Mommy went to college (APU), and to meet up with many college professors and friends.
After a wonderful afternoon there, we headed to my favorite outdoor mall in Ontario – Victoria Gardens. We met up with so many dear college friends and their families that evening.
After spending the night in Ontario, my mom, Tori, and I picked up Brennan and my dad at the airport and headed to Disneyland! It was very crowded, so we didn’t get to ride very many rides, BUT the “Paint the Night” parade made it worth the heat, the crowds, everything.
The next morning we began our journey to the Grand Canyon!
