Bethany and Annalie came to California for an epic two-week visit, and while they were here, we saw a lot of Brenda and Bug as well. The above is a shot taken by Bethany in the Ikea parking structure, because no sooner had Bethany arrived at my house from the airport that I made everyone go to Ikea. And then to Trader Joe's.
We really didn't slow down much during this visit. Bethany stayed with different friends and family all around the area, and visited a lot of people and places that hold fun memories from Bethany's lives in San Diego (because she's actually (har, har) lived here twice).
Much driving, but also much playing, eating delicious food, good company, hilarious conversation, laughter, pottery painting, and photos ensued.
The grand finale of the trip was Bethany's dotty baby shower. Which was more or less the best babyshower ever.

It took almost two weeks for me to get caught up on sleep, but I had a blast. Thanks for coming, Bethany! I can't wait for next time.
