April has been an exciting and busy month! My spring break was a little slow, but afterwards things sped up! We took some time out to go to Disneyland. We always go with our friends Robert and Heather Redding, we got season passes together. Sadly the last time we went Space Mountian wasn't working (my favorite ride!). We'll just have to try again next time! Here are some fun pics we took!
After Ethan's finals he and some of his school buddies went up to Utah to fly fish the Provo River with Zach. It must have been a popular time, if you look really closely at one of the pictures below, there was a fisherman on every river bend!!! After three days of camping and fishing, he came home pretty stinky. Not everyone caught fish, but everyone had fun.
This weekend we got to see one of our favorite comedians, Brian Regan, in Long Beach with our friends Erika and Tyler. Our cheeks were hurting by the end of the night because we were laughing so hard! One of our favorite jokes goes a little something like this... If you have second thoughts about setting time aside to visit an Indian habitation you are having Reservation reservation reservation! HA HA HA!!!
We also got to go whale watching (thank you Karen and Mike). Sadly we didn't see any whales, but they gave us coupons to go back again for another try. We did see some seals, birds, and really nice houses and boats. The crazy thing we did do though was inorder to get to to the boat, we had to ride a ferry to get there. It was the smallest ferry ever, it could only fit three cars!Even though there weren't any whales, it was still a beautiful day out at sea, the sea loins even waved hello to us!
We the coolest thing that happened this week, didn't actually happen to us. On Tuesday, our friends Robert and Heather invited us over to watch American Idol. So we went over and they said they had a surprise in their kitchen, so we walk in and Heather was holding a baby!!! They've been trying to adopt for about a year and a half!!!! Little Rex Ashton Redding was born one week ago April 15th. His mother was hiding the pregnancy and was going to leave the baby in the hospital for social services. But a nurse there knew of the Reddings and talked with the birth mom about their situation. So they called them and they rushed over to the hospital. They were able to witness the birth and take care of him since the moment he was born. He is a sweet little miracle that everyone is just so excited about.
We love you all and hope you are well.
