I thought it would be fun to share some pictures of our Spring Break trip to California with Rebeka. Day one was mostly travel, with a very early morning wake-up call and lots of time on the plane. When Rebeka traveled to America, her first time on a plane, she never got a window seat. We made sure that was remedied.
We went straight to Hunington Beach after landing in L.A. where we saw amazing kites, a very cool pelican, a couple of dolphins, and some “swell” surfers.
We walked on a long pier out to a cute little diner for a 2:30PM lunch, then went to the beach.
Clay insisted that we would ALL put our toes in the water. Rebeka said, very seriously, that she would NOT put her toes in the water. Clay had other plans for her. And, of course, after screaming came giggling.
She loved it. She also loved playing in the sand, burying Nate’s feet.
I loved watching them all. It was fun to watch Benji run like a puppy. Shirt-less is his natural state, he loves the water and he isn’t afraid of a little cold.
Ultimately he ended up face down in the ocean, but he didn’t care. Nothing a little sunshine and a towel wouldn’t fix. Day One, ocean, check. Today we’ll do our first Disney Day, so stay tuned for more pictures. I think what we’re all most excited about is seeing Rebeka’s face when we walk through those gates. She told us she thought when we landed in L.A., we would walk out into Disney. The L.A. airport was a big disappointment! No matter how we try and explain what Disney is really like, or show her pictures, they just can’t live up to the real deal. I don’t know . . . I think the ocean runs a close second to Cinderella.
I can’t wait to hear what she thinks of the castle and fireworks. I also wonder what she will think of the big characters. She will leave with some amazing memories!
Unbelievable how flexible that little girl is! It’s pretty amazing to see that pretty straight foot up in the air and in alignment! 🙂 By the way, I’ve heard that that Press and Seal stuff you use to wrap up food is really good for keeping casts dry. You might want to try that if you can get your hands on some.
What fun!!!!!!!! Have a wonderful time!!!! You all look so happy and I know that Rebeka is having a good. Love all three kids for me. Love., GG
