Happy Anniversary Aunt Darline & Uncle Ray!

Eureka Road Trip 2008
We had the best weekend! We took a road trip back to Eureka, California where I was born and raised until I was 10 years old. My Aunt Darline and Uncle Ray celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary! Taylor, Matthew & Kaela were able to go down there with us. This picture was taken right after brunch before we left to drive home.


"CALL BOX!!!"
It has started to become a tradition that when our family takes road trips, one person will yell out "CALL BOX!!" and then the rest of the people in the car follow up with "Call Box". I really wish I knew how this started or the fascination with this simple yet fun activity, but I just don't have much of an explanation for it.


Taya & Kaela = BFF




During our first night in Eureka, we all went out to dinner at a great little Italian place called "Roy's Club". The food was excellent and we had a great time!



After dinner, we spent some time in the pool and the hot tub. I just love this picture of Aunt Stacy with her boys! Matthew & Taylor




The boys got all dressed up for the anniversary party! Taylor, your shirt was simply amazing! Both of you boys are such babe magnets!



We went to Arrington Apples for the anniversary party. It was such a beautiful apple orchard with tons of flowers everywhere. Aunt Darline & Uncle Ray renewed their vows and it was very sweet! They are such an inspiration to remind us all that marriage is a special gift!




After the ceremony, we all sat here and had a wonderful buffet lunch with Salmon, Ravioli, Salads, Fruits, etc...



Then the dancing started. Uncle Ray gave Kaela a good dance lesson and did a couple of laps around the dance floor with her. Good job Kaela....You are a natural!



On the wayback home, we took our time and stopped at the trees of mystery for a couple of pictures. Here is Paul Bunyun and "Babe" the Blue Ox. There was this man inside of Paul Bunyun that was talking to everyone. It was so cool!



There are not enough words to describe what is going on in this next photo....

Actually 2 words come to mind....

TEENAGE BOYS!!

Oh Lord....help me!
