We really have had another wonderful week. We had the best Sunday yet last week and then a wonderful week with kids!
Boy we sure look short with these guys!
After church a couple came up to greet us. Chantel Jerrett and Reuben Johnson! Chantel was a sister missionary at the Mormon Battalion while we were there and we loved her. Reuben was a missionary in our ward when we first got here. They went home, decided they liked each other, started dating and just got married. They were here in San Diego on their honeymoon! It was so much fun to see them. I didn't get a picture of them but I borrowed one from FaceBook.

that they know.
It was Roger’s birthday a few weeks ago and Aimee, Ryan, Heather and Kira decided to bring their families out to surprise him for his birthday! Roger knew that Aimee’s family was coming but wasn’t aware that the others were and we were able to keep it a surprise. We met with Aimee’s family for dinner on Wednesday night and while we were waiting for our table, Heather and Dave showed up with Dalten! Good surprise but not the end of the surprises.

I met everyone back at the beach house and joined in the games that were going on there. The beach house was packed with 22 people so we gladly took four of the girls home with us for a sleepover! What fun! We went to the pool and then to the hot tub. While in the hot tub we had the opportunity to meet others from the complex and talk to them. The girls were great little missionaries and helped me tell about the Mormon Battalion. I will go on splits with you guys any day.
We worked again a half day Friday and then took off to go play at La Jolla Shores Beach. It was so fun to be there with everyone. I just love watching people at the beach. There are so many different ways to enjoy it. Kids are the best. They can just play and play and use great creativity. Cousins were enjoying each other. We were enjoying kids and grandkids. The best. What a fun day.

We took Olivia, Kamree and Emmie home with us this time for a sleep over with them. We got to go to the pool and over to the exercise room with them that night. We were all so tired that we couldn't even watch a movie before hitting the bed!
Saturday was another beach day. This time we went to Black’s beach where we can use the key from the Institute to go down to the private beach area. By this time, Aimee’s and Heather’s families had left to go home and it was just Kira and Ryan's family there. We had a great time, went home to shower up and then got back together to play some more games.

to get out of the car at church. A
It was fun to have Kira's family over for crepes again before Sunday church. It was so nice to be able to show off our family to so many of our good friends in the ward. I was impressed that the kids stayed all three hours for church too. I think that they probably learned a bit of our spoiled they are to live in an area where they have tons of members of the church. The Young Women's program is very small and the Primary is tiny too. It was a great day.
All in all it was a great, busy week. We were very tired by the end of it but so thrilled to have family around us!
