The Bakers take California by Storm!

I have been bugging my family to come to California since I moved here. I am such a home body and love spending time with my family anyways, but I knew we would have a blast in our little vacation spot. We spent time PARTYING and GATHERING! (as Easton's fortune cookie demanded we should). We gathered at Harry Potter, we partied at the pool. We gathered at the beach, we partied at In 'N' Out. We gathered at the Spectrum, we partied at Sea World. We ate great and we stayed up late. I love love love my family and I hope they had as much fun as I did.

Kenzie stayed longer and we got a little sister bonding in. It went by sooo fast, but Emree, Ty, and I loved having her in our home. She played with Emree and got a tan with me by the pool. I love Kenzie and wish we were closer in age. She is one of the prettiest young woman I know, inside and out. She makes me remember to smile and this last week made me even more excited to spend so much time with her in the near future.

Also this week... Tanner got home from his mission! Tyler's brother Tanner just returned home from a two year mission in Estonia. He is doing great and you can tell his testimony of the gospel has grown and grown. It is so fun to have him back. He is pretty smitten with Emree and it is very cute.

Life has been so wonderful. I think the stress of being pregnant and then having a new baby has finally wore off and we are just enjoying our life. I often need a little reminder to just calm down and take things as they come. This last two weeks was all about family and I loved it. Life doesn't get any better.

Now my pictures are few because my mom was the one flashing her pics, but here are just a few moments of Emree ty caught.

This is Emree finding some sunglasses with Dad. She is getting ready to be a super model. Work it!

But all that modeling wore her out and she crashed while rooming around the Spectrum with Easton and Dad.
These Flamingos were at Sea World, but look for their future appearance... drum roll please...Kenzie swears she is doing a Flamingo theme wedding.

Emree always looks pretty cute to go the beach...I just can't help, but love that face. Grandma bought her a new hat while she was visiting. It seriously melts my heart.

Wow! Emree is getting big all of a sudden! And, I love your new heading picture... but I can't tell which footprint is yours or Tylers. So either you have man feet or Tyler his little girl ones :) jk!
