California, we miss you

A couple weeks ago we went to California for our anniversary and to visit family. We had so much fun it was hard to leave. I really miss the nice cool weather of SoCal as opposed to SoUtah.

Of course we had to go to the beach that is a must. Matt and I packed up Ozzy and his things and hit the road. My Sister, her Husband and two girls came along too.

One of my cutiepie nieces enjoy the beach with Mommy

Ozzy and Matt enjoy the water

Ozzy had a blast running and jumping in the water. Unfortunately it isn't off leash season at the beach yet.

His best tough guy stance. He is such a funny little guy.

One of my favortie pictures from the day. My niece got a little overwhelmed by a wave and ran to Daddy for assurance. It was too cute not to take a picture of.

Meanwhile back at the ranch...

Just kidding, my parents have been raising chicken for a few months now. They decided they wanted fresh eggs and stop eating hormone and steroid treated eggs. It is amazing the difference. Even Ozzy isn't allergic to them, which he usually is.
The whole pack

This gal was so funny, she kept inching closer to me, probably wondering what the heck I was doing.

And then there is Angus, King of the castle, or so he thinks.

He would just sit in the backyard and watch over the chickens. He didn't chase them, just watched.

We had a lot of fun visiting family and just relaxing. It was very much needed.

I try to be a good Aunt, I love my nephew and nieces and it is difficult being away from them.

The chickens, yeah, it is a crack up.

Brianna said...

Awesome pictures! I especially loved the ones of the chickens... weird because I can't stand chickens. Too much manure clean-up and pecked egg collecting hands from when I was younger!

Wow. I love that picture of Ozzy looking like a tough guy. The chickens look great too. Angus as always looks so black and white.hehe.

I don't know about California per se, but we sure miss you!
