California Dreamin

                       Party time on Mission Viejo Lake with Dave, Lisa and Kids.

Dave and I took Carter and Brady over to Phoenix to spring training and a game with the LA Angels vs San Francisco Giants.  Great time, nice experience, I forgot how much I love baseball.

 Wendy and I spent a a few days down in San Diego and visited the Mormon Battalion history site and there in the artifacts was a sword that Philemon Merrill used on his journey as part of the Mormon Battalion.  Philemon is my Grandma Saunders Grandfather on her mothers side.  Great surprise.

We had a great day going on a tour of the USS Midway.  It was great to see the immensity of this ship and get educated on how they launch a plane and trap a plane when it lands on the deck.  The living quarters and food services were neat to see.  We had lots of fun and thought often of the young boys in our family and how much they would enjoy this museum.

some great old planes and new ones as well.

A tribute to all the sailors and to Bob Hope.

                                  The famous Coronado Hotel on Coronado Island

               Pearl of India - great old ship that went around the world at least 6 times.

Long Long beaches on south shores of Coronado Island - wonderful place.
