The morning AFTER...
was just more time to celebrate and have fun!
Sitting, relaxing, eating, talking, soaking morning rays...

We did not rush but made our way to the beach to stake out a spot...
The beach, the sun, the time, the beauty...so much to remember and to be thankful for...
snack, sun, snack, water, snack, sand, lunch time! :-)
O is still asking to go back...memories of a 4-year-old
OOPs! We can't forget: today was Rog's day...Big Birthday spent relaxin' on the beach!
M & M...& M! Little "Meep" has memories too!
Owen was able to get lots of people to play his wave-chasing game:
Gramma...
Auntie Lori...
Auntie Julie...
And then it was time to get some Z's...or we would have a monster on our hands for traveling the next day...
M & M's families all together, eating pizza and laughing some more:
Then it was time to say good bye...to CA, to MB, to each other...
Gramma hugged and squeezed the kids...again
and again... Hugs all around...Loading up...all to sad to leave...anxious to travel all the way home...


Rog is getting good at this traveling thing!
:-)
A suitcase, two carseats, a stroller, diaper bag and carry-on...did we forget anything?
We were early...and the weekend had passed without a bit of stress...until the dumb lady who made us late when checking in...how many things can one person do to screw up our checking in?
Gabby and Gramma Mimi didn't mind the wait...
We made it...just barely due to one melt-down, a poopy diaper, and shuffling of bags that was unnecessary (dumb woman who messed up our tickets!)...
no hard feelings...now. :-)
Can I really call that forgiveness? or just willing to forget and move on?
:-)
Julie and Todd got on the same airplane and we all said good-bye in CO...

To end the blogging on this trip I will revise an earlier statement:

No regrets? only that it was too short!

But memories are deep and we will be together again...soon! :-)
