We were able to spend some time with the extended family while we were in town too, which was wonderful! Rachel and I rode bikes one day to Avila Beach with Aunt Su. We played in the water, made a sand castle and then even got some ice cream! Rachel loves the beach, I can't wait to teach her how to surf! I did take her boogie boarding and she went out in the cold Pismo Beach until her chest, then I put her on the board and she rode it all the way into shore! I was so proud of her and she kept telling everyone about it, "...all by MYSELF!" We had a BBQ at Aunt Su and Mitch's house later that day with Randi, Amy, CeCe, Cahill and Logan. We made sure to all admire Uncle Mitch's new pond that he built and he made sure to point things out to Rachel! It was so great to see everyone and let Rachel get reaquainted with everyone.
Later we went to see Brad and Jessica at thier place. Rachel loved playing with "Lenny", Brad's camilian and making sure that no one touched "Angry Man", Jessica's camilian, because "Angry Man bites!" It was so good to spend time with them. I know they are super busy, so we were glad they were able to spend time with us!
