Our good friends Aaron and Juliet came to visit in November with their children, Kingston and Kylee.
They were only here 3 days and boy, was it a busy 3 days! We ate at their favorite local restaurants, played at the beach, spent the whole day at Disneyland, toured the Long Beach Aquarium, and they still managed to visit with their friends and family nearby.
Noah loved having his friend Kingston here. This was our first time meeting baby Kylee and she is a little doll. We spent an entire day at Disneyland and the kids had a blast. I was really impressed with the Christmas parade. Karli was in awe, waving at each character, and she loved the "snow" falling on main street.
Noah had a blast going on all the big kid rides: space mountain, thunder mountain railroad, splash mountain, and star tours. After star tours with Daddy, he said to me, "Mommy, we REALLY went to outer space! Did you see us??" Since then, he has become a star wars junkie, watching all the movies and asking for a lightsaber for Christmas.
Juliet and I also stayed up for the midnight showing of the Twilight movie, which we were afraid we would fall asleep during. After the movie, at 2am, we were running through the parking lot in the poring rain, laughing. We will miss the Gerry's, but a trip is being planned to Washington next July to visit them.
