So, I've played around and changed the look of my blog.  We'll see how I like it. 
We had a busy summer.  In June Allison had her 2nd dance recital.  She was recognized as the most improved dancer! 
We took a quick trip to the Ichetucknee River to float down the river.  We enjoyed the time spent with our friends.
We also took a 2 night cruise to the Bahamas with Grandma Long.  It was a nice relaxing trip. 
At the end of June we left on our big trip to California.  We were gone for 3 weeks.  We flew in and out of Vegas and rented a van.  We put 3000+ miles on that van! 
First we drove through Death Valley.  Hot does not describe it!  We could hardly tolerate getting out of the car.  The next day we went to a cooler place...a shopping mall.  While the kids saw a movie, Greg and I walked around, I had a pedicure and we shopped.  Later we met Christina D.  Her family was in China when Hope Haven opened 10 years ago.  This is the program that Sabrina was in.  Christina was given the privelege of choosing an English name for our daughter, she picked Sabrina.  We liked it so much that we kept the name. 

We then traveled up to Sequoia and King's Canyon National Parks.
We spent 2 days exploring these parks and then moved up to Yosemite. We stayed in Angel's Camp which was about and hour and half drive from the park. We spent a week there, but only went into the park 3 days. The park was beautiful. We went on a few short hikes but mostly just enjoyed the scenery.
