Post Christmas California trip: part 1

Two days after Christmas we loaded up and headed for Southern Californina. Man o man...that was a long trip. Kent has always talked about his days at the Glamis sand dunes growing up. We were excited to go see what he was always talking about and hang out in some sunshine. We had such a blast. We met up with the Coyles with some other friends that Kent grew up with. The highlight of the trip was Jake learning how to drive the quad by himself. He cant even reach the foot pedals or breaks yet! He sure was having a blast! He was such a crack up to watch. We had a fantastic time and can't wait to go back.
Jake giving us his "thumbs up"!

This is the first trip we took with our trailer. It was perfect. I think we will have many more fun memorable trips to come.

Claire drove the quad for the first time by herself on this trip too!

GO CLAIRE!!!! Thanks for keeping you sand sculpture modest, Kate. And Jen, you need to start using youtube for your videos. Blogger's video upload sucks!!

Thanks Carrie...that is much better. I am dissapointed though because my camera wasn't on a very high resolution and the video looks terrible. :(

Girls, love the new helmet look! Jen...uuhhh not so much! Jake is a crack-up! How does he even reach the gas pedal and brakes? Kate...you forgot the mermaids head! Looks like a blast!

mom...he couldn't reach the break but the gas you push with your thumb on the handle bars. He would just let go of the gas and it would roll to a stop. He had such a blast!
