Good times in SoCal. After a canceled flight and some car-rental exchange, we arrived at Dana Point. Sunday gave us some time to enjoy Laguna Beach.

The entire gang.

"Merrick, check out that wave!"

"Wake me when they're five feet."

Monday was birthday fun with Mary and Amanda. Then it was time for artistic beauty at the Getty Museum. Loved the gardens and the Impressionists.

Lorie and Katie relaxing in the garden. We then did the Universal and Hollywood thing. Next, at play in the sands of San Clemente.

It was great to see Melissa, Adam, Merrick, and so many other family members. Looking forward to a quick return over Memorial Day.


  1. Merrick will be riding the waves soon....

  2. Love the pictures! Glad you had a fun time in California and I can't wait till I can go visit

  3. Sounds like a good trip in spite of the short-term setbacks. Merrick is a most welcome addition to the extended family, Melissa and Adam both appear to be doing well, and the sight seers also appeared to be having a good time - what more could you want?
