Santa Cruz Weekend

We were finally able to take a weekend away in Santa Cruz. We have long wanted to get the old crew together for an updated photo. Unfortunately, it was planned last minute (our fault!!) so we were missing the Adams family and Mike who was working that weekend (but we still had his better half, Leslie! For some reason, I didn't get a picture with her in it.)
A little crazy to see us all with children :)

 Baby Darla was practicing her conversational skills with Dwight, and it was darling!

Two proud papas.

The newest addition, perfect little Cora.

 Having babies around makes these guys look HUGE!

Mama Darla with Baby Cora. She obviously takes after her beautiful mama!

 Next, we headed to Grandpa and Grandma Walsh's house for an overnight visit. We rushed down to Longs Marine Lab before closing time Saturday to experience the hands on exhibits of starfish and other marine life. The kids loved it!

Sunday started out early with the Sunday paper….

 And a walk through Natural Bridges State Park to look for butterflies.

(any time the camera comes out, he thinks it's a personal photo shoot!)

Of course we ended our walk at the beach to check the surf.

A quick surf lesson to end the trip, and we were on our way back home. A fun trip, but not long enough. Next time we'll plan our trip with more advanced notice so we can put together another gathering will ALL our friends.
