Me and my husband's family got to go to California over 4th of July weekend, and stay at my parent's house. Utah has a lot going for it, but there is nothing that beats the beach, especially New Port beach. The sound of the waves crashing, the smell of salt and sand, the feel of the sun beating down on your skin; the sea really is therapy for all the senses. Except maybe taste, because I don't think salt water tastes that great. I also got to see some tide pools with my nieces and nephews which were pretty interesting. Very cool to see how creatures survive up close and personal!! I even touched a sea urchin..
We also got to go to Disneyland!!! The happiest place on earth!! I had such a good time going with my in-laws on rides. I never thought my mother-in-law could rush around to get on rides, but it was very funny to watch. We all got to be a kid again and just enjoy the warm weather. Disneyland is one of my favorite things about California so I was pretty ecstatic about sharing it with my new (ish) family. Plus, my sister works for Disney so she was able to get everyone in for free!!! Nothing beats that..
And look how cute all my nieces and nephews are!! We finally got the whole family together, which is pretty difficult for how big our family is (: Last but not least, me and my husband were able to get sealed to each other for eternity!! It was a super special day with all of my siblings and some of our extended family able to come into the temple with us. Definitely an experience I will never forget.
Thanks for reading and have a great week!!
