Girls only Coastal/San Francisco Trip

While Trevor and Ryan were at scout camp the olders girls and I decided to take a coastal road trip!  Becca was so kind to watch Meredith for us so we could get away!

Our first stop was Solvang where we toured the quaint little town, tried on hats pretending to be part of the Royal family and ate Ebelskivers.  Much to my mothers dismay none of us like the Ebleskivers!

 We spent the night in San Simeon where were visited Hearst Castle.  Then continued our drive up PCH.  We made lots of stops including Morro Bay, Avila Farms, Madonna Inn and a Waterfall that drops into the ocean.

Finally we made it to San Francisco where we got to stay at The Plaza..a luxury hotel.  It was so beautiful!  We felt like Eloise at the Plaza!
In the lobby was a Ghiradelli store so our first stop was for an ice cream Sundae!

We got to spend time in China town, the Wharf, the Packing district, Pier 39, Lombardi Street, Ghiradelli square, the "Full House" house, lots of shopping, the Golden Gate Bridge and jumping in random peoples car they got from Uber.  It was a great experience!  We also had yummy breakfast from Tartines (a must for anyone in the San Francisco area).

Random from Avila Farms
Beach and Jones go perfectly together!

Full house

 It was so windy at the Golden Gate Bridge....this was our attempt at a FAIL!! haha!!

Camp Whitisett 2014

Trevor got to experience his first week long scout camp during his birthday week!  What better way to spend it than with a bunch of boys, outdoors with lots of junk food!  He earned 9 merit badges at camp.  Some of which we canoeing, basket weaving, finger printing, archery, shooting and swimming.  The boys complained about the food being awful so Ryan made sure to bring up some Pop Tarts!

EFY Santa Barbara

Madalyn spent her last year at EFY at the Santa Barbara location.  She and her good friend Ashley Collins hopped on a train from San Juan Capistrano to UC Santa Barbara.  As usual she had a blast getting to know other youth, listening to inspirations speakers, participating in fun activities and being on her own!
