Most of the Rasmussen clan came to see Adri and I about a week ago now. Showed up on a Friday night and headed back home on a Wednesday. Adri spent the entire weekend and partial week with then while I slaved away at work. I did spend a few days with them, but unfortunately was not able to be at Disneyland all of Monday and Tuesday. I know they had tons of fun as I heard plenty of stories and have seen plenty of pictures. Anyway, here is a brief look at the Rasmussen adventure to California.
Saturday we went out to Palmdale and spent the day at a wedding of a cousin of the Rasmussen's. We got to enjoy some free food, good dancing, and each others company. We also got to see a part of CA that Adri and I have not yet seen. That included some REALLY cool abandoned buildings that we didn't have time to explore... maybe some other day.
Then on Sunday we went down to the beach after church for a relaxing afternoon. A few of the kids had never seen the ocean before, so it was fun to watch them play in the sand and wade in the surf.
After the beach we celebrated Taneea's big birthday... the one we al love... 30! She got a pot of suckers that said "30 Sucks," Minnie ears to wear at Disneyland, and a little journal to write the thoughts of her heart.
Adri loved spending all that time with the Rasmussen clan, and I wish I could have as well. But all in all, we had a great time and enjoyed having people here.
