WOW, it's been a fast, fun-filled, fantastic week and a half of family time with our children and grandchildren.  We crammed in a lot of activities and made some wonderful memories. 

We have:
  •  Played in the pool
  • Met the Easter Bunny
  • Gone to 2 Easter Parties
  • Taken lots of golf-cart rides
  • Rode our Razor scooters
  • Played Hula-Hops
  • Shopped at Palm Spring Outlet Malls and LA Garment District
  • Spent 3 days at Disneyland and CA Adventure
  • Played "tackle"
  • Golfed
  • Ate breakfast on the patio
  • Celebrated Jami's birthday
  • Had AWESOME family time!

    Still need to get my Disney pictures downloaded but we had a great time.  The kids got to meet several Disney characters and Hanna had lunch with the Princesses!!  We were able to hit almost all the rides at both parks and do Downtown Disney.  Our little guys were troopers as we drug them around the parks from early morning until late at night.  The day before we left for CA Cole asked me if I was going to pack my "hair-do" dress.  I asked, "What?"  He said, "You know, Gigi, you're hair-do dress."  Then he ran into my closet and came out with my mink stole!!  Too funny!! (No, I didn't take it!)
    It was difficult to say goodbye to Bre and her family.  We struggle with living so far apart and it rips at our hearts when our little grandsons cry when they have to leave.  This year we even got two separate phone calls the first evening they left, crying that they missed us already and wanted to come back!!
    Thank goodness we get to see them again in a few weeks.
    A little side note on Bre's condition:  She continues to have quit a bit of soreness in her legs and weakness in her arms.  The shots are painful and the welts are horrible.  She managed to walk around the parks two full days and only needed a wheelchair one day. Please keep her in her prayers.
    We are gearing up for our 4th and final set of company to arrive in two days.  We are excited to see the Hamerniks and spend some time catching up. 
    As for today, I am off to the pool for some R & R!!
