California!!!

We went to California for Thanksgiving this year and it was definitely a fun-filled busy week! We left Saturday night after a great defeat of the Cougars!!! We stopped in Mesquite for a few hours of rest and no I didn't sleep one ounce! Sam and Jackie cam with us and Sam needs a Sleep Apnea machine for his snoring and we didn't set it up that night.  It was the loudest snore I have ever heard in my life... and I lived with Troy and Teya for 20 years!!! So I went to try sleeping in the truck and had awful nightmares of CSI episodes going through my head. So at 5:30 I went back to the room and tossed and turned till 7 when everyone woke up and we headed to Vegas.  We walked through the forum shops and then got to Cali about 4pm.  Kit was an absolute Trooper.  She only cried the last hour of the ride and I can't blame her we were stuck in traffic for about three hours.  The first night we went to a hockey game and I have to admit I had fun.  It was my first game and there was actually quite a bit of scoring!! When we woke up Tuesday morning Kit and I had awful sinus congestion and so the rest of the week we were fighting a nasty cold.  That didn't stop us though.  We went to the beach Tuesday and Universal Studios Wednesday.  It poured on us the hole day, but it was pretty fun to see the street of Desperate Housewives and they were actually filming that day... I didn't see any stars, but it was fun.  Zak got a call that day telling him he was headed to New Mexico on Monday for three straight weeks and they will fly him home for the Christmas week and then back again for another three weeks.  Anyway we went to Sea World and Disneyland and had a blast.  Kit was still little too young, but we really enjoyed ourselves.  We came home Saturday, got Zak packed up for New Mexico and he left Sunday night.  I know this is a brief description of our adventure, but I know everyone just wants to see pictures anyway...So here you go!!!
