Drive to Newport Beach

The highlight today was Ella meeting her great grandparents. This is the entire reason we came to California for this trip: we wanted to make sure that they had the opportunity to meet their miracle great granddaughter.

Arriving at the Great Grandparents

We had a great time hanging out for lunch. And Ella was showing off with her laptop computer again. Great Grandma was observing closely with loving eyes.

From Newport Beach, we traveled back down PCH to Dana Point to visit with a dear friend. We were at her house until 11:15pm, so we’re looking forward to going to sleep!

Tomorrow is a day of sleeping in and visiting with more friends. We’re also trying to soak in the perfect California weather and the beautiful views of the coast.

Ella, I love the pictures of the drive from the Laguna area to Newport Beach. It brings back great memories of California for me. You and your Great Grandma and Grandpa look terrific. Keep up the good work on the computer. I will catch you later. Love,Grandpa!!!!!!

What beautiful scenery! Bun, I have been so fortunate to be viewing your vacation and just am so in love with CA. The ocean is amazing! I missed our visit terribly today, and yesterday. You and Daddy were doing weight shifting and weight bearing the other day. You are doing such a great job! Can’t wait to visit with you and Mommy again. Have fun on your vacation! See you soon. Love, Krista

Can’t wait for the day when Ella is well enough for a good long visit so we can meet her too. Love seeing you with Herb & Kathy. Much love, Pat & Bob
