california has treated us well

Dinner at Olive Garden with the Tao family and Grandma Georgia... I could never get sick of this restaurant! I have loved getting to know our aunt, uncle, cousins and grandma on Geoff's side of the family.
Katie, Lizzy, Geoff and I...we've been able to see them almost everyday!
spending time with Grandma Georgia and Aunt Linda

we house-sat for 2 weeks and picked peaches from the people's tree in their front yard... we absoulutely loved it! We can't wait to have fruit trees and our own garden some day!

Every night we swam in Grandma Georgia's complex pool.. Geoff has been doing laps and is getting very good at it! He is up to 45 laps, and even hit 50 one night! It has been very impressive watching him become a strong swimmer and he even inspired me to start doing laps as well. I, on the other hand, have only made it up to 13 laps... swimming is hard! This is Geoff swimming below.

we went to the beach a few times Geoff always finds the coolest shells at the beach... but this time we went I was determined to find the prize of the day. well, I found this AMAZING crab!! It would have been even cooler if it was alive! I still claimed the win that day.
