Special times in California

This past week the three of us traveled to California. The last time we were in California, (April 13, 2006) Lindy became a U.S. citizen as her tiny feet touched down on U.S. soil for the first time. This time we were there to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of Lindy's great great aunt Nadine and great great uncle Al, as well as have a pre-Thanksgiving gathering with family.

Lindy did fairly well on both flights and and a real trooper as we logged over 600 driving miles in southern California to our many destinations. We're blessed that she is pretty flexible and adaptable to new situations!

Not only was Lindy reunited with Grandma & Grandpa, Uncle Jeff, Aunt Dani, and her cousins Bryce & Brendan, she met her great grandparents, two great great uncles and great great aunts, two great uncles and one great aunt, a slew of cousins, and all the family dogs...

It was very special for me to see her meet so many of my loved ones on my tiny little family tree--a real Thanksgiving blessing. I think it is safe to say she warmed the hearts of many.

While we were at the 50th wedding anniversary celebration our dancing queen really came out in rare form. The minute the dj put on the music, the lights were dimmed, and the disco ball came out, Lindy was in the middle of the dance floor. She couldn't stop. Pictures don't do it justice because she was moving around so much.

Here are some pictures of the trip...
