Gilroy Gardens

June included a trip to see my parents in CA over the Father's Day weekend. We spent a day at a theme park nearby. The greatest part about small theme parks like these is that you get to ride the rides as much as you want and you don't have to wait in lines for too long. Some good friends--the Kendalls--joined us for the day. The kids absolutely loved being with old friends. It totally made the day. Thanks for making the trip to spend the day with us Travis, Jenn, Gloria, Grayson, Cami and Livee!

Hannah and Grayson on the swings. I remember the swings being one of my favorite rides as a kid. Now as an adult I had to pass the last few times. The kids rode this ride more times than I could handle.

What kid doesn't love to drive a car!

Grandpa and Grandma Rose's house is famous for the snails. The girls look forward to hunting for them when we visit. This time was no different, although Hannah's "bravery" seems to have increased.

We also visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Sunday was father's day. It has been a long time since I have been with my dad on Father's day. It was great to be with him. He took the next day off to fill and throw water balloons with us in the yard. I think we must have tied balloons for 3 hours. Thanks for the memory Dad!
