California Dreamin' so far

What can I say? We've had an amazing time in California so far! The plane ride went better than I dared hope, with plenty of room for Isabella to stretch out and sleep for 3 of the 5 hours! Being greeted by her beloveds Gram and Papa-Joe was the most exciting thing the little sweetie could have imagined... even if it was in the middle of the night?

We have played with cousins, snuggled Aunts and Uncles, been to the zoo (ask her about the Elephant!) seen horses at the park, charmed relatives with her singing and smiles. She has truly been a gracious, if not rambunctious guest. Her sweet playful little voice gives way in an instant to a loud, demanding “GRAM! Come play with Bella!” Gram is more than happy to acquiesce to her request, and she loves walking through the garden with her Papa-Joe.

Anastasia is being absolutely true to fashion with her award-winning smiles, delighted playful coos, and ear-piercing screams in the car. She is delighted to have so many pairs of hands willing to hold her, and is just lapping up the attention. (like we ignore her at home or something)

We have much more planned for the rest of the week, so I suggest you check in with my photo album for pictures that tell the stories much better than my words ever could.
