Trip to California

We just returned from a trip to California for my mom's family reunion and her father's memorial service. The kids were WONDERFUL travelers! They like flying. We arrived in Seattle where Christy joined us, and were supposed to go straight through to Fresno, but our flight was cancelled! They could only get 2 of us on the next flight, so my mom and Christy went on to greet Katie who was ariving in Fresno from Mexico. The rest of us had an 8 hour lay-over! We spent a lot of time in the kids play room. Meadow makes friends very easily, and both of them were the most polite kids there! I was very proud of them! Meanwhile Katie arrived in Fresno.
We arrived that night exhausted. The next morning we went swimming before it got too hot. It was Brennen and Logan's first time in a pool! Fearless Brennen loved it! Logan took a while to enjoy it. Afterwards we began our journey up the winding road to Sequoia National Park for the reunion.
