Last month our family flew to California to spend 3 glorious weeks with our extended families. Phil and I are very blessed to have both sets of parents living just minutes away from each other.

The first week we were there, the kids attended VBS at Gramma's church and Phil and I took off and headed to the coast for 4 days. We rented bikes and rode around town to lunch, the farmer's market and dinner.

Our final week was spent enjoying our annual Cousin Camp! We order Cousin Camp t-shirts and the cousins get together for a week of fun at Gramma's house.

This year they enjoyed a giant water slide, a bounce house, movie nights, a trip to the California Coast, go-cart and tractor races, roasting marshmallows, a scavenger hunt, a talent show, and putting together a care package for a cousin who is serving overseas in Afghanistan.

We love the ocean! We've been blessed this year to be able to say that we've seen both the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans this year.

We made really cool tie dye t-shirts with sharpie permanent markers and rubbing alcohol. You can find a tutorial here.
