Our summer started off in Cancun with the Olson's. (I did blog about this trip already, but if we are doing a proper flashback of summer I have to start off with this one!)
Bawden Family Reunion 2008
My mom's family from Scotland came over this summer. It was so nice to see them....it had been too long. What did we do while they were here?......You will see by the next several photos that the real question is....what DIDN'T we do?!
We went to UNIVERSAL STUDIOS.....
Next stop DISNEYLAND. No summer is complete in my family without a stop to the happiest place on earth!
What kind of tour guides would we be if we didn't take our out-of-towners to HOLLYWOOD.... (A few of our stops included the Chinese Theatre, Hollywood Homes, and the Kodak Theatre)
After those few jam-packed days, we need needed a little rest time. We all stayed at my brother and sister-in-law's house (thank you Becky and Scott). We had slumber parties, swam, tried extreme sports, and enjoyed the fireworks (it was the 4th of July). Good times!
Our last theme park stop was SEA WORLD. It still amazes me everytime that they can train these animals to do what they do!
A fun vacation would not be complete without a trip to the BOWLING ALLEY. I am still trying to convince my brother that bowling is fun....don't think he'll ever succomb!
Did I mention that all of this was done while riding in a 15-passenger van?
Very fun family reunion. Thanks mom and dad....sure love you guys!
D-BACKS BABY! Our office went to a Diamondbacks game for a little out-of-the office fun time. This thank you goes out to our Doctors...thank you!
Kathy's B-Day...We celebrated my mother-in-law's birthday with a fun breakfast!
Last but not least....my summer flashback would not be complete without mentioning my new hobby of sewing! My mom works at the cutest sewing store and got a gorgeous new sewing machine. We have been doing fun projects all summer! Thanks mom!
And that is what we have been up to this summer. P.S....I can't believe that it is October already. Where has the year gone!
