Around Orange County

First on the agenda was celebrating my best friend's birthday! We went to a tea room! Where we ate cute little sandwiches and laughed til we cried.

Then we went to Orange Circle and caught up with our kids who were having lunch and shopping.

They make some large burritos in So Cal! LOL
Then I had a lovely little time in this hammock that I stole from Joy. ;) 

That evening, Andrew's best friend was having a party so we went to get supplies to make our favorite games happen -the Saran Wrap ball game!

Our relatives from Sacramento were in town for a conference during the same week, which was quite amazing and they came to see us that night during the party. So great to see them!

The next day we went to the home of the wonderful P Famiily for breakfast. 
We relaxed during the day, until it was time for the boys to get ready for the winter formal. They were pretty sure they only needed 10 minutes to get ready. ;) 
When a very tall brother needs help with his hair, it requires standing on the toilet! 

 These handsome guys all ready to go!

Family photo before the dance!

The stunning couple! 

While they were at the dance, we went to LA to hang out with all the other kids.

One of many reasons why I wouldn't want to live there! ; )

We had Mexican food, then went to the Griffiths Observatory near the Hollywood sign. We were up on a mountain, so we had a beautiful view of the surrounding cities

and a close up view of how "The heavens declare the glory of God" through two different telescopes! 

Then we went to a donut shop called, Afters and we waited for an hour in line out in the cold for one of these babies!

That is a donut sliced in half, filled with ice cream and sprinkles and then fried again! 
Pretty sure it was worth it!
