Sunny California


















We are not the sporadic leave on a vacation in the middle of the night type....but we did! Brett's family had been planning a trip to Grandma's Pebble Beach home for the 4th of July. We couldn't take the entire week off of work so we decided we could not make the trip with the fam. We worked the first half of the week and then on July 3rd at 11:30 at night we said why not? Lets go!! My sister Heidi had never been to Grandmas house before so she proceeded to call 10 coworkers to see if she could get work off (keep in mind this is at 11:30!) Brett and I both had the 4th of July weekend off of work and school so we started driving to California at 12:00. We just didn't see why we shouldn't. It was so out of the blue and totally not like us. We are more of a plan things out type of family.

We arrived 13 hours the next day and shocked Brett's entire family. They had no idea we were coming. We spend that day resting and then went to Seal Rock. We found so many star fish and saw a few sea otters. That night we made it to the July 4th Fire Works over the bay. Hallie thought it was the greatest!
