seeing family & friends:: week #1

: This is THE BEST part of visiting our homeland! We can't get enough time with people!! Our first few days were spent living with the Holtzclaw clan in Aptos, CA. We cherish this family! Their entire family has encouraged us beyond belief. Their kids are hilarious, and were so entertaining! I especially loved reconnecting with my best buddy, Laura and getting to know their newest member : Hana!

Then we moved to Santa Cruz, where we stayed with my mom! The girls adore her - and loved spending time with her! She took the entire week off so we could have more quality time together. We ate extra good this week!

We also took beautiful walks thru the neighborhood, exploring the beauty of Santa Cruz.

Asia got to see some of her ol' buddies: Corban & Abby!
We have missed you friends!

We also met my dad for breakfast and fed the seagulls at the wharf, which was a highlight for the girls. The weather has been amazing!

We love you, family & friends!
