I Love California!

Me and the Boys... Parker, Riley, Austin and Carter

Melinda was so scared of the Ferris wheel! The Ferris wheel in California Adventure not only goes around in a circle, but the little carts you sit in sway back and forth and it kind of shocked all of us... especially Melinda! :)

Me and my Daddy at the Electrical Parade :) I love him!

Uncle Paul and Tanner...such a cute picture!

Well, I've kind of been on a blogging strike for about a week now so I guess its about time that I post something! Now let me explain... I got home from California and was so excited to post all of my pictures because this blog thing helps give me a reason to take tons of pictures! I made a slide show with TONS of pictures on it and of course it took forever because the computer that I had to use is kinda slow... so it took a little over an hour...(i don't know how I found that much patience for blogging that day- but i was so determined to get those pictures up!) I made the slide show and went to get the code to post on my blog and IT WOULDN'T LET ME!!!! I know that really has nothing to do with my blog website...only the slide show website but i didn't care one bit! haha i was so tired of sitting at the computer so I gave up and decided that I needed to do something else with my time. :) So it's been a week and I'm now going to put up some of the pictures from the family reunion in California that we just got back from a week ago! I'll put up the rest of them when I summon up enough patience to tackle the slide show again :)

But for now... here's my pictures from California! The reunion was so much fun and it was so great to be able to spend time with all of the family all together! I love it when we get that chance because it doesn't happen very often. At the last family reunion, my Aunt's and Uncle and my grandparents all decided that they wanted us to at least have one more, even if my grandparents were not around anymore. Well both of my grandparents have passed away since the last Sander's family reunion two years ago, so this one in California was our last. It was super fun but really sad at the same time because I always look forward to these reunions to spend time with all of my cousins and extended family. So thank you Grandma and Grandpa for setting up this awesome tradition that has brought me so close to my family for these last 19 years. Without their desire to have a tight knit family, I would definitely not have the kinds of relationships that I have now with the people that I love the most. So thank you!
