We recently made a trip to Orange County to celebrate the life of Paul's cousin's husband, Mel, who passed away last month. He was one of the sweetest men I've ever met - he always, always, always had a positive attitude even though he was very sick for about the last 20 years of his life!
After the service, we met with my parents in Dana Point and stayed at the Marriott. It was a very nice experience since we are used to staying in our little motorhome! I went swimming in the morning, Avi enjoyed the hot tub at night with Mimi, we all devoured with joy the breakfast buffet (I got about 3 plates, and Avi ate enough salmon lox for an adult!) We had a very nice time - talking and hanging out with Mimi and Boppy. Avi got to spend one afternoon with them while we went out on a wine cruise date around the harbor.
At the petting zoo, Zoomars.
Avi's first bunny holding!
Bunnies and chickens... even guinea pigs!
The guinea pigs were the sweetest and calmest!
Avi loved riding on the train, and then afterwards, watching the train!
The "corn pit" - probably Avi's favorite thing - was a 15'x15' box filled feet deep with corn kernels. All the kids had fun running their hands and bare feet through the strange sensation!
Strange, but Avi will often get to the top of a slide and then not want to come down. She's not scared of swings though - she loves going higher and higher!

On our "date" on the harbor. It was a cold evening for Orange County.
After our date, we got to come "home" to this - definitely the best part of the day!
