Santa Cruz, etc.

Friday, December 3, 2010

The day after Thanksgiving two of my little cousins, Ashley and Ashton, got baptized on the same day! It was such a fun and special day. I'm glad we got to share that day with the family.  The top right picture is a good handful of the McLaws women (me, Brittney, cousin Megan, Grandma, Aunt Lisa).

It's just always so good to spend time with family. Have I mentioned that family is what it's all about?

After the baptism and lunch, our family drove down to Santa Cruz. What a fun little town! It's right on the coast, south of San Francisco, and has fun piers to walk down, carnival rides galore, and super cute shops. It was quite chilly as it was right on the coast, but so, so worth it. And this is the town where I finally saw Harry Potter 7. Whew. My fandom is restored. (That bottom left picture is for you, Marcella. :)

A trip to Santa Cruz wouldn't be complete without visiting the local seafood restaurant. A fact you may or may not know about Camille is my aversion to seafood. I've matured a tad through the years, but still would rather not partake of creepy looking foods. In fact, when I was a little girl my dad once said he'd pay me $60 to eat one of those creepy fried Octopus things, and I refused. If only I would have known the power of $60... I would have endured the torment. Brittney, on the other hand, has always loved strange seafood entrees. To each their own.
