Our little family went out to visit some dear friends from Orange County this weekend. It’s rare that we get the chance to go visit because our car is getting old and isn’t very reliable.
Even though it’s only 1 1/2 hour trip it seems like when we pack that we’re going on a mini-vacation.
Each trip back solidifies my husbands desire to return someday…it’s amazing the difference travelling from one county to the other makes.
Orange county has a ton of pluses but living there is just a little too expensive for us at this moment in time. I know if God wills we will return someday.
We had the chance to visit with dear friends at the church that we used to work at- Celebration Church @ Aliso Viejo. The pastors of the church are super dear friends of mine who I rented a room from for 7 whole years (in my single days). My close connection with them and their kids is one that I don’t ever see losing- they’re my second family!
The last time we visited was September 2009 so everyone was amazed at how much are boys have grown and changed! We got lots of comments on their curly hair! Here are a few pics we took on our visit.
