Emily's "Top Ten" list
of our final vay-cay days:
:: greeting Isaac and Eliza at the airport. I can't tell you how good it was to have them back in my arms, see their wide, happy smiles, be all together once again.
:: LA freeways. Enough said.
:: relaxing day at the beach near our rental in San Clemente. Relaxing, yes, but all that sun resulting in lobster-red arms and legs. My lips one big blistering mess.
:: Eliza's amazing "Mermaid Girl" attracting admiring smiles.
:: squealing like a little girl on our way to Disneyland.
:: this sweet boy wanting to hold my hand the entire time. He and I leading the way, skipping with joy.
:: Isaac's birthday celebration starting a few days early... so many friendly "Happy Birthday" wishes. And being selected for the Jedi Training... it just doesn't get any better than this.
:: our first time experiencing California Adventure... Awesome!
:: chocolate-covered bananas, Dole pineapple freezes, and Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln-- our late afternoon salvation and survival.
:: these poor feet just barely making it after two 14 hour days of non-stop walking and standing in long lines.
:: air-conditioning breaking down just in time for our long drive back home to Utah. (And through the Mohave Desert, too.)
