after we got back from Mexico Matt couldnt work very well because of his broken rib so we took another week off and visited his parents on their mission at camp Pendleton
Here are some picts of us at the pier (our favorite place to eat while visiting them). We also took Olivia to Disneyland for the first time. Matt has wanted to take her there since she was born. yeah she was like 2 months old when he first wanted to take her and I told him no because.... well isnt it obvious??? she was 2 months old. Well this time he was determined that she was old enough and he was right. she loved it! not as much as her dad but she did think it was neat and we all had a really good time.
about a week after my surgery, Matt thought I needed to get out of the house so he took me to this place by St. Georgethat has a million joshua trees to see the desert bloom. He grew up in Arizona and he loves the desert. We finally got out and were so sad to see that the joshua trees had all burned up. not all of them but most of them. He took Olivia on a little hike anyway while I camped out in the back of our 4runner with a book.
They brought me back a pretty boquet. since I couldnt go along.
When she got tired they sat down to read a book. I really like this picture.
the sugar is rushing to my brain
that was really good mom. can we do this everyday? she loved opening her presents
her favorite was the bouncy balls
we went camping last weekend in the San Rafeal swell. its where they used to mine for uranium so there are tons of mines and lots of cool historical stuff. plus its really pretty. I highly suggest going during the spring before if gets too hot. she loved, loved, loved being outside, but she did not like the dirt. whenever she would fall down she would wait patiently with her arms held out for one of us to help her up so she wouldnt have to touch the dirt. I think she gets that from me. I love the outdoors, but when everything is covered in dirt I go crazy.
We think this was an office. its too small to be living quarters. its underground which was kinda neat.
Matt carrying Olivia. this pack is the best purchase we have made I think. Olivia loves it. and it makes carrying her super easy and light.
Matt took this picture of us while he was in the mine looking out at us. being inside the mines was a little creepy.
