Newpot 2010

Well, our vacation time for 2010 has officially come to a close. Because of my pregnancy we had to cancel our last annual summer vacation to Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Next year, we'll be there along with many other places around the world that I am really excited about- baby in tow.

I spent about 2 weeks in California with my family this month, and was so happy to have Josh down for the last week, which was spent in Newport Beach. I love Newport and will live there one day. My brother Chris and his wife Mari live there, one half block from Corona Del Mar Beach. I am so jealous and love their neighborhood. Anyway, here is a recap of our trip in pictures:

We spent a many days at the beach visiting Crystal Cove, Corona Del Mar and Laguna. The boys played volleyball and the girls relaxed. It was perfection.

There were the traditional extended family BBQs which are always a joy. This year we were entertained every night by the hilarity and pure cuteness that the kids provided. We may have the cutest kids on earth in this family. Not only are they good looking but they are smart and as funny as can be.

Told you so:

We also spent many days at the pool relaxing. We were all obsessed with Dylan's bummy in his little swim/vest/suit.

Of course there were many wrestling matches. We have a few fighters in the family so any time we all get together this happens.

Another tradition we all enjoy is the night cruise around Balboa Island we do every year.

There is always a stop off at the arcade on Balboa. The boys were obsessed with this punching game that gauged how hard you can hit. Cody, Luke and Josh probably spent an hour and $1000000 on this game.

Lindsay of course screamed at, threatened, made out with, and talked to the baby all week long.

Crystal Cove was my favorite beach day. It was so beautiful. We played in the tide pools, played games, ate fresh fruit, chatted and took naps. It was quite perfect.

Everyone wanted in on feeling my belly jump.

It was a perfect week and I can't wait to go again next year. It's weird to think I will have a 10 month old baby when we go again.

The end.

It was fun seeing you guys, but it's crazy that we half to go all the way to California to see each other when we live just half an hour away from each other. You are so inspiring Courtney! I did not know it was possible to looks as good as you do pregnant.
