Cali-forn-I-A

i've been wanting to post all our pics from our California trip last week but blogger wouldn't allow it. my storage on my blog was full! you know you post WAY to many photo's when a free blog isn't free anymore because you've exceeded the huge amount of space they've allotted you. hehe. i had to pay for more, and it took a day or so to update.
but here i am! ben had to go to california on a business trip last week..so we went with him! we left last sunday and got home late friday night. we had a LOT of fun. the boys LOVED every minute of it.

the above pic is kaden's first gaze at the ocean!! we went the first day {evening} we were there.

here's kaden and gavin beeing wheeled out of one of our hotels one morning. hehe. we stayed in a few places because ben had to meet with people all over southern california {well, mostly sandiego area and anaheim}...
the beach...
like i said a moment ago..we went to la jolla beach the first evening we were there. here's kaden pushing gavin around :)...i caught the very first moment kaden saw the ocean up close...

gavin's very first time in the ocean...he ran right out :)...but kaden stayed in :). he loved it...

gavin decided that playing in the sand was much more enjoyable than playing in the cold water :)...
my two cute boys running in the sand {hills, this is when you first got there. they were running to see you} :)...
i love this photo i snapped of ben & kaden...
our good friend, hilary, lives in sandiego. so we got to meet up with her a few times before we went up anaheim. it was so good to see her! we love you hilary!
here's kaden and hilary showing off their muscles :)...we watched the sun go down. here's the beautiful sunset...
i love these next 3 pics. kaden held on tight to gavin as we wheeled them around :)...

after daddy's meetings the next day we went to sea world...
the first place we went once inside was the whale tank.petting the sting rays...i LUV kaden's face as he was watching the sea otters...
waiting to see the whales....
and there they are!
kaden was FREAKING out. him & gavin LOVED seeing them! they both kept screaming, "free willey"! hehehe! they watch that show all the time at my mom's house.
when the whales first came out kaden screamed in a LOUD and SLOW voice,"OH MY GOSH"!!! everyone turned and looked at him and laughed :)...


waiting in line to see the sesame street 4d film...
gavin put like 5 pairs of glases on hilary :)...
flamingo's...sharks! we went right underneath them in a cool tunnel...the sea lion show...kaden found a starfish!hilary and gavin having fun. my boys just LOVE hilary...especially gavin
watching the whale show again at night...and this is what gavin thought at the end of it all :). he was OUT!and the night fireworks...
i didn't pose gavin, or even put him on our bed. this is what he did himself as we were trying to get into the suitcase for his pajamas once we were back at our hotel. he was TUCKERED! so funny, huh?!
more on our trip coming soon...
night night for now.
