California Dreaming

I just got back from visiting my family in California.

It was so great to meet my new niece, take Katie to Disneyland, visit with the Snows, have a visit with Amy, and make a mad dash to Vegas and back and even do a couple photo shoots. 

I'm editing them now and I can't wait to show them off...especially the ones of baby Kay.

Can I just say how confusing her name is for Katie?

Katie can spell her name now and she knows her name starts with a K. So when you ask her what her baby cousin's name is...she says, "I don't know. But there's a "k" in it." lol!

Cracks me up every time.

Here's a little sneak peek of the baby. This isn't from the photo shoot...but dang, isn't she sweet?

It was all I could do not to sneak her home with me. She is sooooo cute! 

It's funny, but I have not felt one stirring of wanting another baby in the last three years...but holding this baby in my arms...oh boy. 

I hope I'm over it now. : )

I was able to take Katie and her cousin Steve to Disneyland. It was soooo fun!

Katie wanted to meet every character possible. Every time she saw one...she would dash after matter what else we were doing.

And Steve? Steve was obsessed with swords and he really wanted this one to be his.

But, no matter how hard he just wouldn't budge.

Of course, Katie just  had to give it a try too.

Katie is at such a fun age...everything was super real to her and she loved every moment.

Doesn't this face make you laugh?

Cute pie.

Katie particularly enjoyed the enchanted tiki room. 

She was dancing around like a crazy person.

I got this little video of her inside the tiki room.

It's mostly her just spinning...and you can see about half way through she gets so dizzy, she can't even find me.

Takes her a minute to get reoriented.

Then at the end...there is a huge boom. I thought she was going to pass out. She dashed back to my arms like the world was ending. lol! 

In addition to Disneyland, we really enjoyed our lunch with the Snows. Gosh I miss them so much!!! 

And I was able to catch up with my friend Amy and visit the Bashaws. It was such a great way to unwind after all the craziness back home.

And the best part?

Coming home to a clean house with all the laundry done...and my wonderful family.

What a nice trip home!! And such a beautiful baby! I know another baby you would like to hold too ;) And geez, Katie is ridiculously cute!

It was kind of an amazing feeling the first time I could hold a baby and not really long for another one. After I felt like that for a few years, I finally admitted that we were really done. :)

The trip looks like a fun way to reconnect with friends and family!
