Emily moved to California and I’ve been dying to get out there all winter!

Since Paul has been working pretty much 90 hours a week and it was suppose to snow here and be 80 degrees there, I figured it was a good time for a break.

The weather did not disappoint, and the company of course didn’t either.

We made a few visits to the beach to soak up some Vitamin D. Macey even came home with a swim suit tan line.

Macey and Amaryllis were the bf’s we’d always hoped they would be.

Miles and Kensington’s relationship though involved a bit more screaming and pushing, but in the end I think I saw a few sparks flying. :)

Another highlight of our trip was stopping by the World’s Tallest Thermometer in Baker, CA.

Took us back to our dating days, when we stopped here on our way to 6 Flags to meet Emily and Jake. You know, when we looked like this:

So glad The Bartlett’s chose to live somewhere closer and with pretty much perfect weather. I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of them then we used to!
