california, part 8: saying goodbye

On our last day, we spent most of the morning/early afternoon in the pool. After packing up, we went out to dinner with the Hickmans & Barretts at Round Table Pizza. It was a good last meal before hitting the long road home!

With the Hickmans:
Aunt Carol, Natasha, Katrina, Finn, Kenton, Cedar, Wyatt & Uncle Keith

After dinner, we made one last visit to the Barrett house to have some dessert (cookies & ice cream) & say goodbye.

Katrina (28), Cedar (4 months), Lincoln (7 months), & Melissa (26 1/2) :)

Cedar likes looking at Lincoln. Such a sweet smile!

What an amazing trip, full of wonderful time with family. I am so glad we were able to come down for my uncle's Memorial service & to have the chance to meet sweet Lincoln. We will miss Uncle Tom & remember him always! Thank you to our California family for welcoming us to your homes & making time for such a great visit. We love you guys!

We drove overnight & made it back to Eugene in 14 1/2 hours. The kids did really well & slept through most of the driving. It felt so great to get home. We drove straight to Kenton's parents house & dropped of the kids so we could go home & nap. :) Sleep never felt so good!
