Welcome Home!

Caitlin's little brother, Daniel, came home from his mission to Texas on Halloween day!  We were able to fly out to California to help welcome him back!

Mom gets the first hug.

Everyone was excited to see him, even Gretchen who video-called in from Virginia on Caitlin's phone for a while!

It was a perfect weekend to head to California!  Despite being November, it was 80+ degrees.  Daniel's first full day home we reintroduced him to the water, spending the afternoon at Newport Beach.

Apparently, it was a good day to jump because we did it a lot.

We're pretty fun.

Caitlin looks pretty awesome when you crop everyone else out!

I tried practicing my handstands while there.  I wanted to get as good as Daniel, but to no avail.

Then, Caitlin tried to teach me her ballet ways.  I am pretty much just as good.

We forgot to bring a football though, so we had to improvise with a water bottle for our game of catch.

We have been so lucky recently: since moving to Salt Lake City 6 months ago, we have been able to travel to all 4 corners of the US--Florida Keys, New York City, Seattle, and Orange County!  It has been so much fun!
