Santa Monica Pier

A few days after we picked up Josh and before we officially welcomed him home, my family + I agreed to jump in the 15 (and then the 15 became a 12 because our A/C went out in Vegas) passenger van in July and head to southern California for some time to hang out.

We had so much fun + since Taylor left for Arches National Park this morning I let her take my small camera + proceeded to remove the pictures giving her an empty ready-to-be-filled camera card. It was then I discovered these pictures...

When we arrived we took a walk on the pier and let the kids pick a ride. Rachel + I thought it would be fun to take the boys on the ferris wheel. Our teeth were chattering the whole time. Good {freeezing!} times, right Rach?! :)

I was laughing so hard looking at these pics I'd forgotten we'd taken as I remembered how much we all so wanted to be like the girl who had the right swinging attire + gloves, she was "showing us how it's done" and making it look oh so easy.

Connor: he probably (sadly) did the best.

My mom (and Lauryn) trying to help Taylor up to the ring!

Calling in reinforcements.
Good ole uncle Bry.
This is the best picture ever.
Probably because you can't tell that she's trying to reach rings.
Just looks extra really CRAZY happy.
And she is.

My turn, watch out.
I've been working out.

It was SOOOO hard.
Couldn't even get off the ground!
(The girl at my 10 o'clock is the MASTER!)

Uncle Bry comin thru!

These are their impressed faces...

And like always (right Brooke?) the one COMPLETE little family there, had to get a pic.
Aren't they so cute?
They are my favorite.

After we went straight to eat at Cheesecake Factory out on the deck, it was such a fun day!
