Our Second HOME: California

A couple weeks ago we were able to go home to my parents for a whole week to celebrate the 4th of July. I know we go to California a lot. It's kind of our second home. We like to take advantage of all it has to offer without actually living there (paying property tax, dealing with political issues). It's the best of both worlds. Plus we have to take advantage while Chase can fly free! 
I've decided to make a California bucket list of touristy things to do that I have never done or things I want Casey to experience. This trip we decided to go to Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. It was pretty cool to do especially right before the 4th. They had a whole exhibit on Abraham Lincoln which was really educational.
 Here are some pictures from our trip!

 Air force one!

 Look! I'm on a horse!

 a piece of the Berlin Wall

Simi Valley

Ronald Reagan's Gravesite

 I was able to take my Dad's place and go to Josh Groban at the Hollywood Bowl with my mom. I can't believe I had never been there! It was sweet. And they did fireworks after!

We spent a lot of time in my parents backyard just hanging out at the pool and laying out

 We went down to Doheny to surf and have a beach day! My best friend Sara was able to meet up with us and meet chase for the first time!! I wish she didn't live in Dallas :(

 Baby did so well on the flight home! He slept the whole time :)
Until next time California :)
