A birthday hotdog roast

We went to California last week for my daughter’s 7th birthday. All of my extended family lives out there, so CA is where we go when it’s time to party. Lots of pictures (and captions) following!

Everybody roasting hotdogs. There were many, many wiener jokes.

Ahh, the typical American family–all sitting with their devices. Note the cunning use of umbrellas in the background.

My sis-in-law Makenzie is a professional photographer, and took a lot of these pictures. Like this one.

Driving home was smooth sailing until we entered Arizona. There a giant storm awaited us. This is us driving into it. I didn’t take pictures of the hail and lightning because I was afraid we’d die if I took my eyes off the road.

The dust was blowing like crazy here. Not sure if the camera captured it.

And that’s a brief photographic summary of our trip. It was so much fun! Big families are the best.
