In California!!!

So, our summer adventure has begun! We spent maaaany hours on airplanes…

on the airplane…and finally made it to this beautiful place!

We are here in Los Angeles for my husband’s brothers wedding, which is the real reason for this whole adventure. So I am hereby thanking my brother in law and my soon to be sister in law!!

the brothers

We are staying in Santa Monica, and the first thing we did the morning after we arrived (*naturally waking up early because of the 10 hour jet lag…), was of course to go for a wonderful run in LA. What a great way to get a feeling for the city!

We ran by the famous Santa Monica Pier, and decided that we must take the kids there later, and here you can see proof that Thing 1 and Thing 2 did make it there:

After enjoying a couple of rides there, we made it to the beach, which I like way more than the rides!

Isn’t this ocean just beautiful!!! Sooo huge! So amazing!

Here is our princess playing in the waves with her Savta (grandmother). Good times!

Look at the width of these beaches!

Oh, yes, we are enjoying good days. Wonderful times with family, some that we live close to also in Jerusalem, and also some that we haven’t seen in a long, long time.

We are so thankful for the time together! So much joy. So many memories made.

OK, I have to go. We are going kayaking with a great aunt before the wedding later today! 🙂

    Te’ena, I just discovered your blog. Love your home decorating–very inviting. 🙂 If you get a chance, you may want to go to Balboa Island, right off Santa Monica while you are in the L.A. area. You can walk the main street and look at the shops, walk around the Island, take the 3 car ferry across to the Peninsula and walk to the pier and 50’s restaurant and the ocean or take a boat to go whale watching etc., etc. etc.!! It is one of my favorite places. Enjoy and G-d’s blessings on all of you!
