Anyways, back to Memorial Day weekend. We went to the beach along with all of the other hundreds of people visiting Huntington Beach. I really enjoy the crowd on holiday weekends though. It makes going to the beach more exciting, more to see. I am sure as the summer wears on I will not be as excited about the crowds at the beach and will be longing for the days of parking right next to Taco Bell on 9th instead of on Palm and 9th. We bought an umbrella to shade Ava and that makes a huge difference with taking her. I am less stressed about keeping her for burning but keeping her cool.
On Sunday Rachael and Brennan had Savanna's baby blessing. It was really sweet and they had a fun party afterward with family and friends. I love excuses to get together with everyone. Savanna is growing up so fast. We're going to miss seeing them so often when they move to AZ.On Monday we had a fun day. We stopped by our ward BBQ at Lake Park, met another couple in the ward which is always good (we have to make friends somehow). Then we met up with Bill, Cindy, Meredith, Camille, Bryan and Jeremy at Wahoos for lunch. We went then went to see Shrek the Third (cute movie). Meredith saw a display for the upcoming The Simpsons Movie and couldn't resist getting a pick with the family. Then we went to Bear Street Park and played. Jeremy rode his Razor scooter round and round. Ava played on her towel and with Grandma and Grandpa. The "big" kids played with Stomp Rockets. Then we went up to Rancho, had nachos and watched Terminator 3. It was a great weekend. It's so great that we have so much to do right here where we live. We really love living in California.
