Christmas trip 2009

We had a great Christmas this year, we spent it in California with John's family and had a mini family reunion doing all sorts of fun things in LA and San Diego areas. We started it off by going to a Laker game and then we headed to Disneyland for a day. Next we were off to Legoland and that was Christmas Eve. We ate at Benihana Christmas Eve which was VERY untraditional but there were LOTS of people there (lots of happy birthdays being sung-kinda funny). On Christmas day we just kinda hung out at the hotel and swam and then ate our Christmas lunch at Schlotzky's deli and dinner at TGI Fridays. Once again, very untraditional! We went back to Legoland the day after Christmas and then did some shopping that night. The next day was Sunday and we got to go to our old ward in South Pasadena for church, saw a missionary farewell and got to see lots of old friends! We caught up with my friend Stephanie (from nursing school) for lunch and then headed to our hotel near LAX. We left the next day to come back to Idaho. We had a TON of fun and of course made sure we stopped at In-n-Out, and El Pollo Loco. :) More posts to come but don't expect them all in one day!
