Shawn and I had planned a trip to California with my mom to visit my sister Christie and her family. It turned out that Shawn's parents were going to the beach at the same time so we went and hung out there with Shawn's family for a day.
Here is Kellen getting some fresh air on the balcony with Grandpa Mecham and Jolie.
Kellen and Shawn ready for the beach.
This is how Kellen spent his first beach experience, under the umbrella asleep. Doesn't he look like a stud?
Hangin' out in the hotel room in Carlsbad. Kellen was loving the hotel life, as you can tell, but Shawn and I were glad to put him back in his room. (Kellen is a loud sleeper)
We went to my sister Christie's house for a few days. Here I am withKellen, Ethan, Christie, Ansliey and Bonnie (my mom). While we were there Shawn and I went to Magic Mountain and of course like all Costley vacations we went shopping.
Here is Shawn and Kellen relaxing after a long day of shopping.
In the long car drives to and from California Kellen found a friend, his thumb.
Shawn's parents are building a cabin in Prescott and he was up there helping his dad so Vicki (Shawn's mom) and I decided to go up for a couple of days. Shawn's sister, Nicole, and her kids also came up for a day. It was a lot of fun and great to get out of the heat for a couple of days.
Joile and Max making fire pits at the cabin lot. Behind them is the path that you drive up to get to the lot.

Here is the driveway that Shawn, Del and Ben have been pouring. The cabin is going to be on a landing at the top of this incline. It is beautiful up there and we can't wait for the cabin to be finnished so that we can go and visit.
