(Ivy and Oli in Paris - Dec. 2002)

Aric, Ashlyn, and I got up early this morning. We had breakfast with my parents, packed up the car, and made our way home. It was hard for Ashlyn to say goodbye to her grandparents. With each visit, she grows increasingly attached to them. I tried keeping Aric company half of the time, but ended up falling asleep for most of the car ride down. =P

We stopped by Stevenson Ranch to visit with Brian, Grace, and Brandon! Holy cow, Batman!...Baby Brandon grew BIG since the last time we saw him! He no longer looks like a fragile newborn. He's a lil' boy now. He is so cute, too! =D
We grabbed dinner at Chi-Chi's Italian Resturant. They serve fresh authentic food with homemade pasta. YUM!

We hung out at Brian and Grace's till close to 8:30pm. Some parts of Orange County were really foggy on our way back, causing an eerie glow in the street lamps. After we got home, we unloaded the car , unpacked, put the baby down to bed, and relaxed on the couch.

I'm so tired!...even though I slept a lot in the car. hehehe

Hope you all had a great weekend!
