Christmas in California...

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! Ian, the boys and I flew to California for a week to be with all the Kirkland crew. While we were there we had lots of adventures! Gamma and Gampa took the boys to the Discovery museum and to Disney Land! They had their first experience with Krispy Kreme and In and Out, and were blown away with the load of presents under the tree on Christmas morning! They were absolutely spoiled since they were the only grand kids / nephews around. And of course, they had an absolute BLAST!

Here are some photos of those adventures: (beware, there are quite a few pics)

We all chipped in and got Ian a gift certificate to get his pilots license!
