So the last time I got my family to visit me, I had to graduate college. (That was four years ago.) This time was more difficult; I had to have a kid. However, I guess that technically means that they were visiting her. I'm okay with that.
My dad was in love.So were my sisters.
We took the family to John's fish house at Dana Point Harbor for fish'n'chips
and to the Shake Shack at Crystal Cove for malts.
I figured two-weeks-old was old enough for a first visit (albeit a short one) to Disneyland
where my dad was excited to take Lola on "It's a Small World"
It was Anna's favorite ride.
Before the family got there, my mom and I took Lola to the beach. My mom is originally from southern CA and was anxious to see the ocean. And 11-days old seemed plenty old for Lola. And I was able to both rest and get out of my apartment. Win-win.
Lola loved cuddling with grandma.
When the family came, we of course had to go back...this time for a bon fire.
And lots of time was spent in the pool at their hotel. LOTS of time. Unfortunately, Lola (and I) had to sit this part out.
It was fun to have them. I miss you, family.
