Camp Snoopy

Ollie & I spent Thursday packing for our long-weekend trip to California. Aunt Elyce sent Oliver a present and he was excited it arrived that day.
 Ollie refers to this hat as his "broccoli hat." {Bronco - Broccoli, same difference. Right.}
He must like it because he refuses to wear any other hat now. Thanks, Elyce!
We finished up loading the car, picked Jordan up from work and took off for Temecula, CA.
 It was wonderful to see and visit with Steve, Jenni, and their family while we stayed there. We have missed them and Ollie & Daisy were good pals. Of course, I was having too much fun and never even took a picture of those two playing together. On Friday, we all went to the beach and again, had so much fun no pictures were taken. I did take a picture of us eating our fresh fish & chips lunch. So good.
Oliver took all of two minutes to fall asleep after a day of fun at the beach.
 {I made this blanket for Ollie the day before we left. He picked out the fabric, obviously.}
At the beach he enjoyed chasing the seagulls, playing in the waves with dad and digging with his shovel with mom.
On Saturday, we took Ollie to Knott's Berry Farm or Charlie Brown's house {Camp Snoopy}.
He was so excited to meet Linus and Schroeder, but wanted nothing to do with Lucy.
 This swing ride was probably his favorite...
and this bus ride was definitely his least favorite. Just ask him about the bus ride and he'll say, "I don't like that big bus ride."
I timed this picture just right, but it's weird because he loved the giant swings and I never saw him make this face, but my camera captured it.


The weather was pretty crummy that day {70% humidity} and we were thrilled with a late lunch at Mrs. Knott's Chicken Dinner {my family's tradition}. Ollie chowed down and was especially impressed by their raspberry Jell-O.
 The next day we drove home. Ollie is a great little traveler. He never had an accident and even was forced to hold it several times. He slept great and was in good spirits all around.
 We will definitely be going back.
