Old Car / New Car

Ok, I really loved this old VW Van we owned way back when.
(Yes, that is parked outside the old Wymount Terrace Apartments in Provo!
Tom holding little Tommy).

What do you think this van or . . . .

This new Kia Sorento?
Actually they don't really compare very well.
Totally different cars but I loved my VW van and
now I love my new Kia Sorento! :)

Huntington Beach!

The slide pool for the kids.

The beautiful Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach.
Our room was very nice. We could see the big
swimming pool and some of the beach
from off our balcony. :)
This photo was taken with my phone camera
and it still looks great. Thats how wonderful
of a place it was. Sweet!

Finally! Huntington Beach!
This is our fabulous hotel that we stayed in for
the first week in California.
It was very nice. The walkway took us right over
to the beach. We parked our CRV in the parking lot right
at the foot of this bridge with all of our beach gear
in it. . . umbrellas, beach chairs, mats, etc. so it
was very easy access. And straight on the beach.
This is a picture of Huntington Beach Pier.
Kim and Katie lovin it!

We all got a lot of sun. So we tried to protect our faces
at least a little. Katie rocks this hat!
Oh, the twins are so much fun!
Even sighted a few dolphins. Not a very good photo of it but
saw 3-4 together one day not far off the beach.
Beautiful waves, beautiful water, beautiful place!

Tommy, Shayna, Ashton and Weston came down for the day to
play with us. We played all day in the pool area where there
were fun slides for the boys, warm pools and yummy food. I can't find my
photos of the slide but if you look at Shayna's blog you will see some there.

:( but later that night we made yummy smores over the fire pit!

Ashton is checkin out his marshmallow on his stick!
Here is the whole gang!

Notice we are in the middle of August wearing our sweatshirts
by the warm fire pit. Oh, life is beautiful!

Sticky fingers you can be sure!
We had a great day. Thanks for coming to join us!
