Disneyland and Huntington Beach

Last weekend we had a wonderful family vacation to Southern California. As our Christmas gift from Mom and Dad, we were all treated to a four night stay at a beach house, and our birthday gift this year was admission to Disneyland. It was a great time with all of the kids, and aunts and uncles, and of course, the grandparents too!

Here are the 3 BFF boys in their matching outfits posing with Grandmama and Grandad (Ishbobo), before hitting the road to Disney!

The Schnells first family trip to Disneyland!

Carson got to meet Mickey!

Carson's highlight of the day was riding the Carousel with his Daddy!

After a long day, 3 cute (matching) cousins were sound asleep in their strollers.

The next two days we spent at Huntington Beach... we had a blast! Here is Dad, all suited up to go out and catch some waves!

Carson, sitting on top of his sand castle his cousins made him so he wouldn't get wet by the waves.

Playing in the sand with Daddy, Auntie, Uncle Sean, and Cousins Dylan and Devan.

The two beach babes after going boogie boarding.

I wonder where Dylan, Devan, and Carson get their ability to nap in public?

We had a wonderful trip, and look forward to doing it again next summer!!

Summer fun!

Here are some pictures of the past month, filled with friends, fun, and swimming!

Fourth of July fun... Auntie E and Uncle Michael came over, as well as Kenny, and Megan and Kara (pictured).
Definitely interested in the sweet treats!
BBQ with Auntie Kourt, Uncle Ben, and BFF Kaden!

Swimming with Mommy

We have had a great month in the pool, Carson loves it. We take him in most nights after we get home from work/daycare at least for a quick dip. When it's still over 100 degrees at 7:00 PM, unfortunately we can't go for a walk. The pool is the best place to find us!

US Open!

Two weeks ago we had a wonderful family vacation to Monterey/Carmel and Pebble Beach. We celebrated Jeff's first Father's Day at the US Open, and celebrated Suzi's 30th, Michele's 32nd, and Maya's 38th birthdays, as well as Suzi's Dad's 38th Father's Day! Lots of fun was had by all.
Here is Carson on our first day down at Cannery Row

After lunch at Bubba Gumps, Carson with his Grandmama and Grandad!

At The Gevertz' condo in Carmel where we stayed, we all had fun playing with the boys!
Grandmama and her three favorite grandsons!

Jeff and Carson on Father's Day! :)

Then Jeff and I went down to Pebble and Carson spent the day with his grandparents. We snuck our camera in and Jeff had no problem busting it out to get some great pictures.

The man who needs no introduction, Tiger Woods:


On our way out someone got this pic of us (too bad my hat is so low you can't see my eyes).

The following day, we drove along the coast to Big Sur. Unforutnately, it was a bit foggy on the water so we didn't get to fully enjoy the beauty, I guess we'll have to go back another time to check it out!

At the beach in Carmel:


On our last day of vacation, we drove to San Jose for a quick visit with The Narduzzis. Here is a picture of Sean playing in his new backyard, tee ball turned to golf, I got some great pictures of him, but I loved the golf pictures the best!

And, we got to meet Sean's new brother Ryan Baker. What a sweet boy, in this picture he was one day shy of two weeks old! He only showed us his eyes for a second and spend most of the time we were there sleeping. :)
We had a wonderful family vacation and look forward to our next trip in 2-weeks when we go to Disneyland and Huntington Beach. Lots of fun!!

Cracking up!

Here is a video I got of Carson the other night. He was laughing while we were playing catch so I set up the Flip Camera, and he laughed harder than he has ever laughed before. Enjoy!

The best part about this video is after we uploaded it to the blog, we were watching it on the computer, and Carson started cracking up at himself again. He really thinks he is a funny boy... and thankfully he is!! :)
