I Must Take A Trip To California

Listening to B-I-N-G-O from a very young age, there is a lyric that says, "I must take a trip to California, and leave my poor sweetheart alone..."

The Littles have frequently talked about going to California.  

Planning a trip out west to catch up with friends and family and share a little about how God has been directing our family, the travel circuit included California and we aren't sure who was more excited, the Parents, or The Littles.

Tom and Jody graciously hosted us in Altadena and though the weather was cool, the company was warm and sunny! We had a few short days of pure sweetness as we were able to spend much time in conversation and have some adventures along the way.

Our first morning, we went to Circus Vargas, where Tom and Jody, playing the classic grandparent role, bought the girls snow cones and popcorn!

The circus pre-show, Little A "balances" a peacock feather on her hand.

Overall this trip, Little J has been much more accepting of our new friends.

The Littles were mesmerized by the circus but this picture makes me laugh as it looks like they were totally disinterested. :)

While touring "Old Town", The Littles thought it meant they had to act old and so they would look around and then shrivel up and lay down on the sidewalk, "I'm so old".

Tom and Jody's backyard is completely enchanting!  The Littles spent hours playing with play dough while the rain fell on the lush plants.

After a wonderful few days, we said our goodbyes and then hopped in our rental car for the next part of the trip, Arizona!
Lots of time on the road...

Prayer Request: 
The Littles are adjusting well to new places and people and even played upstairs for hours last night while we had a presentation; however, their little bodies haven't changed time zones yet and with very late bedtimes, they are getting from 3-4 hours less sleep a day than normal and it is starting to show.

Looks like fun! Praying for sleep for the girlies. :)

I think the song was "How much is that doggie in the window?"
