Playing at the beach in Santa Cruz

While Uncle Tim surfed, we went and played at the beach. The girls had lots of fun.

Hannah was great at shoveling. Now I know she can help clear the snow, if and when it comes.

Let me sleep Naomi! You kept us up all night long sleeping in the same room.
Wahoo! Play time in the surf.

Here come Eliza with some water for the sand castle moat

Beach Trip

Uncle Tim wanted to go surfing, so we all went to Santa Cruz to play at the beach. It was a beautiful, sunny, warm day.

Turkey Run

Thanksgiving morning the girls ran in a Turkey race organized by our good friend Angie. They wore numbers pinned on their shirts, had a water table at the halfway point where they could just throw the cup on the ground, and there were gold medals and snacks waiting for the girls at the end of the race.

Isn't this a race? Rachel sure likes her drink.

Then we played at the park while the mom's prepared the Thanksgiving feast. Thanks Angie for such a fun time.

BYU football game

My brother Tim and I went to the BYU vs San Jose St football game. It was lots of fun. Half the stadium was filled with BYU fans. Too bad we lost. 

They had a pregame tailgate BBQ on the outfield grass of the  San Jose Giants. Tri Tip and pulled pork sandwiches, yum.

Off to California

We drove to the bay area to spend Thanksgiving with the Mason's. It was a long drive.
We stopped in Medford, Oregon and our hotel had a pool and a giant water slide!

We drove past Facebook's headquarters, just up the street from my parent's home.
