Trip to California (part 6) - meeting the cousins!

Friday afternoon we arrived at the rental house which was Disney themed. It was pretty cool and fun to explore. Layla found the dress up clothes pretty fast and had to wear them!

Just inside the entrance was a large lion! During the week the lion wore different head accessories (crown and such) that the kids placed on it.

The kitchen area was accented with red and all the kids had Mickie Mouse place mats. There were even Mickey and Minnie plates and bowls for the kids to use.

The bedrooms were the most exciting place! There were 4 bedrooms and 3 of them had themes. Sanaa, Layla, and Malakai all slept in Woody's Playhouse.

Natalie and Isaac slept in Crush's Cove.

Nate and I slept in the Pirate themed room (it didn't get a name). Caleb, Sarah, and Daniel slept in the master bedroom which didn't have a theme, but was still quite nice. Gene and Carol slept downstairs on a roll out bed and the couch. They tried sleeping on the inflatable mattress, but that lasted only one night. Apparently, if one of them moved the other person was almost bounced off the mattress.

Gene and Carol dropped us off at the house and then headed to the airport to pick up Caleb, Sarah, and their kids.

Seeing each other after three years was pretty fun! Our 6 kids got along great and had a lot fun playing together. Hopefully it's not another three years before we see them again.
