Our California Vacation

Two days after Kaitlin and Dan’s wedding, we headed out for California! We had a wonderful time! It was our first real family vacation in the ten years that Matt and I have been married.

Our first stop was Laguna Beach where we spent three days at the Pacific Edge Hotel, right on the beach. It was really great being able to walk from our hotel room to the ocean. These photos were taken our first day there when the kids were discovering the ocean for the very first time.
