we have been seeing a whole lot of instagrams from utah- either piles and piles of snow or sick families. we decided to extend our trip a few days and avoid the cold and germs. to celebrate our non-snowy day we took the girls down to balboa island to ride the ferry and ferris wheel. i am the only one of us four with a (according to matthew, irrational) fear of heights. so the three of them enjoyed their ride while i waved each time they passed me by. i loved hearing gracie yell, "weeee!" as they came around. matthew gets just as excited...he's a good dad.
we rode the ferry three separate times. the attendant didn't quite understand. maddie shouted she spotted whales every ten seconds and gracie got frustrated that she missed them...i think maddie likes pushing her buttons.
"hi whale!"//missed it again
i see this pose at least 5 times a day...the, "listen, i'm going to tell you exactly what i want" pose...it's followed by the, "not taking no for an answer" pose.
saying goodbye from the car on the ferry
we couldn't leave without corn dogs and frozen bananas...and taking the car over on the ferry (which may have been more at my insistence than the girls). i couldn't get enough of our day and watching our happy girls.
