C*A*L*I*F*O*R*N*I*A Love

For Spring Break Andrew and I went to the lovely California. It is the most beautiful place I've ever been inside the U.S. Andrew had the opportunity to grow and learn from some wonderful Godly leaders at a Big Church in Orange County. It was also a very enjoyable and relaxing time for the both of us. I had been one time before with my BFF, Abby when we were Freshmen in college and this was Andrew's first time. Now he knows why I love Cali so much, because he does too! :) We are so glad that we had some extra time to sight-see...Here are a few pictures of our trip.

Andrew, of course had to get the full experience. He tried surfing. I give him a lot of credit...all the local surfers said the waves were huge for that time of the year. We loved seeing surfers everywhere.
A great Sushi place. It was so trendy. I could have eaten there everyday, but instead we ate a different restaurant every meal. We got a good taste of the O.C.
I love this surfer pose of my stud!
We had brunch right on the beach one morning at the Beachcomber. It was a very isolated/intimate area, no streets close by...with a restaurant. You had to walk over a mile to get there or ride the "Beachcomber Bus." I had never seen anything like it.

We walked Downtown Disney at night and I just had to have my picture taken with my prince-charming in front of Cinderella and the prince.
Welcome to the HOTEL CALIFORNIA! enough said
I had to take this picture for my nephews and my first grade boys.
The Chinese Theater in Hollywood, where all the stars names are on the street.
I got sooooo excited when I started to see the HOLLYWOOD sign. I kept saying the famous American Idol phrase. I'm going to Hollywood!
The famous Roscoe's in Long Island. This is the one that Snoop and Kobe Bryant frequently visit. We talked to the owner about what they ordered and that's what we had to get....Fried Chicken and Waffles. Suprisingly it was good.

Andrew was lovin him some In-N-Out. Can't get them anywere else. He had to go there twice.

The amazing Middle School/High School Student Ministry Building. It was super Sweet!
Saw cars with boards everywhere...California has such a neat atmoshpere.
The middle School guys...too cool! We think so highly of them and so glad we got to meet them personally.
This last picture is for my girl-Abby! I had two while we were there and thought about you with every savory bite. Wished you were there. Mmmmm...famous Bj'S pazookie!

I love it!! Your post brings back so many good memories! I keep telling Brent he needs to go just once. I was salivating over the pizookie picture....that sounds so good....I think it would even be worth missing your flight over!!!!!

Luke had my phone when you sent the text the other night, so I never read it (he told me you texted though) and then I forgot to text you back. I am waiting on the "invite" from Michelle before we come down. The baby is just now getting over colic so I think its getting easier for her. Hopefully we will be heading your way soon!! Your trip looked like so much fun!! I've never been there, but it looks breath taking.
