A Month of Traveling Panfi’s {SoCal FUN from last summer}!

This was a post I started last summer and never got around to finishing! We had such a packed couple of months in July and August…that I never seemed to catch my breath in September! We were back in SoCal being travelBUGS this week and thinking about last summer as we soaked up some fun and some sun {so I decided it would be a fun time to finally post these fun pics}! Enjoy!
¬†After our Santa Cruz or BUST trip last summer we turned around a few days later and drove down to Orange County to see our buddy Erik get married to his lovely girl Angela! We made it in time and had the nicest evening! Their ceremony was so personal and lovely from the music on down to the dresses & flowers! Their vows were heartfelt and I loved that they each said one little zinger about the other! The reception had a ton of creative and personal touches as well as In-N-Out burger for dinner {how cool is that}?! Somehow we did not get any pics of the bride & groom together {I think we were not thinking clearly from the high of a “night without our kids”}! However, I will never forget how genuinely in love they appeared and the beauty of Angela that night. As I felt when I met my cousin Cory’s lovely bride earlier in the summer, I must say that I was proud of Erik for choosing such a wonderful woman to spend his life with & I look forward to seeing them grow old together!

We were happy to stay at Aunt Ev & Uncle Ray’s house for the week leading up to another stop in Santa Barbara to celebrate the twins (more on that later)! We saw cousins and friends. We relaxed in the pool and napped by the pool.
It doesn’t get much better than that!

Last stop on our journey was in the Montecito hills…just north of Santa Barbara.¬† We spoiled my mom and her twin sister for their sixtieth birthday, hung out in a beautiful home with a view and spent a whole day in Carpenteria eating and being beach bums. More pictures of the weekend Twin festivities to come eventually!
A day of beach heaven

I think crushing a sand castle is as fun as making it! Don’t you?
It was a great way to end a month of Traveling Panfi’s…
{I will post more details about how we celebrated the Twins 60th soon…but that’s another story for another day}
