California


Ruby and I just got back from a week in California--a week of heaven, more like.  My home town is so gorgeous.  I just can't get enough of the Bay Area.  When we drove in and saw the green hills, Christy and Danny and I freaked out with how beautiful it is.  Any time I walked out of my house, I breathed in the air and had to close my eyes because it was so delicious.  What is it about the air that is so different and wonderful there?  I really like my home in Springville, but it just can't compete with California.

This week I got to spend a lot of time with my grandma, which is always one of my hopes for time spent at home.  I played lots of games with my sisters and bro-in-law.  I hugged and kissed the twins a lot, even though I can do that here in Utah too.  I watched Doctor Who with Katy--score! I went to Katy's singles ward, which is quite an experience when you have a rambunctious toddler who was missing her nap--remember how silent singles wards are in Sacrament Meeting? Yikes.

Christy and Danny took Ruby and their girls to the park by my house while I was at home taking a looong nap , still recovering from our drive.  (You would think that driving for 12 hours with 4 kids would be hard, but that wasn't our problem.  RUBY was. The Leininger girls were angels.)  Chris took some cute pictures.















Sad I missed out on that fun--it was the only nice day the whole week!  But California rain is different from Utah rain somehow, much more pleasant, so I didn't really mind.











It was so fun to be home.  Ruby is obsessed with my parents--she didn't want me the entire time we were there.  It would have been way sadder to leave if Mom's trip here for Easter wasn't already on the calendar!

Like your new header:) I was trying so hard to get her to look at me but she just wanted to run up the hill and find Lucy. I wish we were still there..,

I haven't been back to the Bay Area in years and reading this made me SO homesick. Sigh. Someday...

I agree with Christy, the header is awesome! Love Ruby's big girl hair and the green CA hils.
