California Vacation and Matt's Wedding

My brother, Matt, got married in July so we headed to California for the wedding!  We decided to make a family vacation out of it and spent our first few days in California at Disneyland and California Adventure, then spent a day at the beach before heading to Temecula for the wedding.  We spent our last day back at the beach.

We had a great time at Disneyland and California Adventure.  The lines weren't too bad considering we were there in the middle of summer vacation.  Of course, I am comparing it to Disney World when we went over spring break a few years ago (those lines were crazy).  The kids loved the beach and trying out the boogie boards.  We all enjoyed the pool and hot tub at our rental house in Anaheim.  Ryan learned to jump off the diving board and swim to the side without his floatie and Drew and Kayley learned how to dive in from the diving board so it was a productive vacation!  Matt and Janelle's wedding was beautiful and we had a lot of fun catching up with some of our family that were able to make the trip to Temecula for the wedding.  It was a very memorable trip!
