Home Sweet Home

Growing up, I never really thought of my home as a vacation spot. I always thought it was so weird when I would see tourists that had come all the way from Europe to stay in Redondo Beach. (I mean when you've got the French Riviera, Greek Isles, Barcelona, etc, WAAYY closer to you...WHY Redondo Beach??) 

Now, I go home and I can't believe that I pretty much grew up in paradise! I never knew how lucky I was. 

So here are some pictures from our week in paradise :)

Keith and I (and Matt) at Redondo Beach.

Me and Keith in Catalina Island.

Keith enjoyed holding his Zipline cable thing (whatever its called) like a machine gun the entire time.

Before we got on the boat to Catalina, I told Lila we might see some Dolphins in the ocean on our way over. Little did I know, it's probably not wise to tell a 3 year old they might see something you have absolutely no control over. She kept asking my dad where the dolphins were. Luckily, right before we got to Catalina, we saw a pod of LITERALLY about 200 dolphins. You can't tell from the picture but it was pretty amazing. I was also happy to NOT be the one responsible for a very disappointed 3 year old.

 Me, Keith and my parents met up with our friend Nate at the Angels vs. Rangers game. 

Chip had a pretty good time too. He and Ashley's dog, Daisy were best friends from the second we got there. It was pretty adorable.

He was so worn out that he slept the ENTIRE drive back to Utah. 

P.S. I promise I'll try not to turn this into a mommy blog about my dog. I swear we aren't those weird people who think our dog is our least thats what I keep telling myself.
