So my brother and sisters came at the beginning of Oct. for a little over a week so I figured I'd better blog about it! We didn't get as many pics and I would've liked but we had lots of fun! They flew in to LAX and Tosh got a rental car and drove the rest of the way to our house. They kids were SO excited that they came! Brynnlee had been promising me that she wouldn't fight with Chalese at all while they were here and she was right! That may sound funny.... but seriously those two have always been more like sisters and Brynnlee sure was the little sister who liked to push Chalese's buttons any chance she got! But Brynnlee thinks that the reason we moved is because she fought with Chalese so much..... we keep telling her we moved because Daddy got a job and we're really lucky he has his job that he really likes so we're going to stay here for a few years at least. But for some reason she still thinks it's because she used to fight with Chalese a lot and get into her stuff all the time!
They were so cute. Chalese painted Brynnlee's nails and played with her non stop. Brynnlee loved having her "big sis" around again! They really have always had a special bond since Brynnlee was born and it's definitely been hard being away from home! The kids still say daily that they want to move back in to the blue house by Grandma and Grandpa Flamm's! Even though they get their own rooms here and we have a little more room! Tosh spoiled the kids AS USUAL, and Spence was a great buddy for Tayson to have around. He played ball with him and took him to the park and kept Tays from beating up on Brayden. Spence could definitely handle Tayson's craziness a little better than Brayden does! It was fun for Austin to have someone to play basketball with and play football on the play station..... cause I am so not in to doing either one of those things with him! The only hard part was that Brynnlee was in school all week and of course Austin worked so we weren't able to do as much as when my sister Maurcine came to visit but we still had fun together!
|Picking Apples in Tehachapi (It's a town that is up in the mountains with about the same elevation as St. A! And it was a little chilly!) They even get snow in the winter!|
|We had to play at the park after picking apples|
|Cute park with faces cut out of a lot of the trees. They also had one shaped like a turtle and other faces|
|What kind of trip to California would it be without going to the beach?! This was Chalese's and Spence's first time seeing the ocean!|
|Austin taking Tays out into the waves and pretending he was going to throw him into the ocean|
|He threw a fit once he got back on shore. It was pretty funny!|
|Austin helping Chalese jump some of the waves|

|Sadly the best pic I got with Spence|
|My sister who's 16 1/2 years younger than me! She's growing up so fast! (But I'm still staying young right!?)|
|Three out of five sisters|
|Brayden still remembered Chalese! He was a little iffy about Tosh and Spence but he clung to Chalese!|
