Donovan, Cortney, and Elinor visit

Donovan, Cortney, and Elinor came down to spend this last weekend with us here in SoCal. We spent all day Friday and all day Saturday at the beach in what were, weather wise, the best two beach days I've ever experienced. 
[Ok fine, I cheated.  These first two pics are from last year.  If April were'nt pregnant I would have gotten away with it too]  

Below you can see the ladies hanging out at Dockweiler this year.  We also hit up Topanga Canyon Beach and Ocean Park.
Elinor as a mermaid.
On Friday we made one sweet sandcastle.  
"Look upon my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
And here is what an hour of waves did to our effort. 

 "Nothing beside remains Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

Looks like a great time and these are beautiful pictures. We miss you in the ward already, cooking class was not the same without you last night.
