Baseball Games and The Beach

We have just been going nonstop. Sunday after church we went to the beach for the day and night and had a great big fire. The girls loved swimming in the ocean and just had a ball. I have pictures of this but they are on my other camera so I will post later. Last Thursday night we went to a Quakes (the farm team for the Angels) game and it was so much fun. The girls had never seen a baseball game and really enjoyed it. The best part is that if the Quakes win the game, they have a huge fireworks show. They just loved the whole experience. Yilia said, "I didn't understand the rules of the game but I loved the atmosphere."

The girls got to test their throwing arm to see how fast they could pitch. They were good sports and played along-- they actually did pretty well!!!

The girls leave Wednesday morning so we have had this fun "surprise"planned for them since the beginning. They have known there is going to be a surprise but had no idea what. All us adults got babysitters and took one of Brian and Heather's limos and picked the girls up from the church (after school was over for the day) and took them down to the beach and had dinner on the end of the pier. When they walked out they were just amazed. They had seen limos but had never been in one and were sooooooooo excited. We had a nice dinner and we did a bit of shopping after dinner and then we went home. It was a great surprise-- one I am sure they will not forget.
