one last family trip

you'll be hearing this a lot over the next month...
i don't want my parents to move!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i am soaking up every second with them before they 
i can't believe it's getting so close. this last family 
trip all together was just what we needed, but it 
was bittersweet to know that we probably won't all 
be together on a big trip for 3 years once they leave 
in june. this trip is one my family does every single 
year, so it will be sad not to have my parents here! 
but, it made this one even more special and fun. 
here is some of the fun we had being together...
including lots of beach time, playing in the pool,
best meals out, competing in the "dunn olympics,"
family pictures, newport, laguna, balboa, biking,
running, laughing, games, movies, disneyland, & more.
why don't we live by them??? love this fam so much.

^^ typical photo-bomb by my dad
^^ the start of the intense "olympic games" created by my brother

^^ lovely laguna.
^^ 3 of the best people in this world if you ask me.
^^ brave boys getting in the freezing ocean!
by the end we all did, but they were the first ones.

^^ we stayed at the marriott coastal villas in newport,
first time we've stayed there! so lovely.

^^ beach soccer for hours

^^ champs in golf! my sis-in-law mindy and i
won the basketball, pretty proud.

with all of us singing "the wheels on the bus"

^^ daily stops at ruby's for burgers + shakes
