Visitors Part Two

Karen and Dave came last weekend to visit. We had so much fun hanging out, doing crafts, doing homework projects, going on walks, eating yummy food, playing on the beach, and just being together. 3rd street promenade

Visitors Part One

We had the best week because we had two sets of visitors! First my little sister Bryndy and her friend Lindsay drove here on their college fall break for a few days. Then for the weekend Jeff's parents flew in to see us. It is so much fun to have family to play with and talk to. We sure do get a lot more people coming to LA to see us compared to Rochester, MN? Humm........
(i am sure it helps to be closer driving distance, or maybe warmer weather, or lots and lots of things to do?) What ever the reason we sure do LOVE it.
Here are a few pictures with Aunt Bryndy and Lindsay.

Thanks Brynd and Linds for hanging out with us and letting us tag along with you guys on your fall break! Hope you had fun!
