Summer Fun--Catalina!

We have been having the BEST summer EVER! I think it is because we are spending so much quality family time together:).
Owen is a swimming fool--he also loves to help Daddy with the blower!

This is Jenna on the "Catalina Flyer" on our way to Catalina. We saw dolphins on the way back--too cool! We loved sitting on the top of the boat and feelin' the breeze".

Owen at the beach in Catalina

Dad and Jenna on the kayak
The water was crystal clear
This is the "casino" which means "gathering place" as we found out--not an actual casino.

Owen loved the park in the center of town--especially the fire truck!
Jenna loved the frog :)--go figure

We took our bikes and rode all over Avalon
We also played a round of mini golf.

Owen was examining his next shot
The colors around Catalina were AMAZING

Gotta love Owie kisses

Dad taught Jenna how to use the camera--pretty good shot, huh?

We had a great time! And we needed a crazy face shot of course!
Then it was time to go home:0--all good things must come to an end!

It has been a while since I read your blog. You guys have been a busy little family this summer. The trip to Pat and Carols looked increddible. So many fun memories, I can't wait until we can do trips like that with our kiddos. Jenna is an amazing child, her decision to be baptized is very special, thanks for sharing that on your blog. You and Pat are awesome parents, I hope we can learn from you. Looking forward to September.

Lots of love
