Well we couldn't make a trip out to Sebastopol without riding on some horses. In Dean's ward back home a wonderful couple let us come ride one of the many beautiful horses they train for the horse races. We rode one of the older horses named "Spanky" and the kids could not get enough. They took turns riding this horse over and over again for a couple hours. Dean enjoyed it probably as much as they did.
Notice Dean is still holding onto the reigns while I was riding the horse:)
Kashus even got to steer the go-cart around the ranch.
They bred these race horses on this ranch. All of them were born in January so these Colts were less than 7 months old!
Six Flags:Magic Kingdom
This is the second time we've come here and it was so much fun! It was an action packed day filled with tons of rides for the kiddies and adults and lots of different animal shows to watch. There is so much to do there that it was impossible to squeeze everything in in one day. We had a pretty large group with us though so I was able to sneak away to ride some of the roller coasters before the day ended :) I sadly realized after the third one that at 30 my stomach can only handle so much now :(

Sometimes they drive me crazy cause they love to wrestle which almost always ends up with someone in tears. But most of the time I am grateful they are so close in age cause they love to play with each other and are best buds!
My handsome boy.
Grandpa and Tita
One of the main reasons for going to California was for the Turner side family reunion. It seems that this year will be the beginning of many annual reunions!
Grandma and Grandpa with all but one grandchild, Matthew, who stayed home with his mommy.
They had so much fun in the kid friendly lagoon. We stayed there ALL DAY while everyone took turns going out on the boat.
I must say that the reunion was a success! It was fun spending time with everyone on the campgrounds, cooking, cleaning, and eating together. On the last night we were able to hear stories from Grandpa Turner and have one last campfire together. We are hoping the reunion tradition continues and are looking forward to having many more memories like this one!
Especially memories like this!
Aya loved hanging out with her cousins Kenny and Lizzy!
During our stay in California we got to stay at Dean's brother Donny's house for a few days. The kids had so much fun playing with their cousins Tyler and Owen.

The San Francisco Zoo
I must say I wasn't all that impressed with the San Francisco Zoo. Being that San Fran was a big city I thought they'd have more animals and more to see, but it was still a nice day and the kids had fun. I forgot to empty my SD on my camera before we went to the zoo so I didn't get to take too many pictures from the day but here are a few.
Our trip to Cali to be continued... (Too many pics from our trip to post all at once)
