On the way there, we stopped at a park I went to as a child and that I also took went with the older kids. We called it Dinosaur Park and I remembered it as having dinosaurs. But when I read the sign this year, Laguna de San Gabriel, I realized there are no dinosaurs! It's all sea creatures!
This slide was really steep!
I had to go down this slide first before the girls would go down it.
On Sunday we went to our usual sake park in La Quinta to ride scooters only to find out the skate park was removed and new tennis courts had been installed. So, they climbed trees and played instead and later we went and bought some tennis rackets which we have said we would do for the last two years.
On Monday I met Dar, Dani and Denise (not there yet in the pic) in Redlands. Dar and I always try to celebrate our birthday together. I also got to go see Dani's new house and the remodeling they have done. It looks great.
On Tuesday we just relaxed. Wednesday morning we drove to South Orange County and looked at some areas we might move to next year. We topped off the day with dinner at Medieval Times. They LOVED it!
We all loved this beautiful white horse that comes out at the beginning.
Thursday morning we went to Knott's Berry Farm! There was no one there and we never waited in a single line. As usual, they are opposites and Mia loves amusement parks whereas Anna asks to leave most of the day!
I think you are supposed to sit next to them, not on them, girls.
There you go.
Friday we went to Long Beach and met with our oldest couple friends (they got married two years after us) who have lived in Long Beach for almost their entire marriage. Long Beach is another area we are considering moving to next year. Becky and Arek will probably move here. I forgot to take any pictures, but they drove around and showed us different areas and then had lunch with us.
That afternoon we went to Torrance where Dan's brother, Greg, was receiving a Hall of Fame athletic award from their high school.
Saturday morning we went to breakfast with Maureen and Paul who stayed at the same hotel as us and then we headed to the airport. It was a very fun week!
