Spring Break

SierraDawn after a fun makeover with the Tuttle Girls. Ahh so pretty!

Yes , there are 10 kids in that Jeep! Can you find my 3!
Brother Tuttle was a very busy man all week, driving the Harper's Jeep around. with at least 4 screaming girl's, standing up in the backseat holding on to the roll bar!
(sound familiar to anyone??)

Siesta time! Mike always finds time for a nap in Baja!

The whole gang is here! Even Crash made an appearance in the photo.

This is long over due, but I just got the photos off my moms camera. Can you believe I forgot to take mine down to Baja.(that has never happened before)
We spent our spring break down at Grandpa Ragle's house in Baja. (what a surprise) The kids just love spending time down in there just running wild. That is was I love about it now.
When I was a kid everyone had the same spring break in Cali. (always around Easter) and the beach was always busy (but not California beach busy...) most of you know what I'm talking about. Baja beach busy means there is someone else on the beach, how dare they encroach on our 1/2 a mile of beach... they are way too close. No seriously it can get a little busy on holiday weekends, with vehicles going up and down the beach all hours of the day, and you have to keep an eye on your kids. Now it's completely different. We were there the week after Easter, which meant it was soo quiet. I think we were the only Quads and Jeep on the beach all week. Ahhh so nice. To have miles and miles of beach to our selves. Upon our arrival to the house we were surprised to find out that a Family from our stake was staying at The Harper's beach house next door. So much to my delight and my daughter's the Tuttle's were there all week too. The Tuttle's have 11 children, 8 were there. 5 of the 8 are GIRL's, SierraDawn was in heaven all week. The best part is Krii (mom Tuttle) is so used to having a ton of kids my 3 just blended right in. But my kid's are also finally to the age that they can go off down the hill all by themselves and stay out of trouble. They have been so many times they know the rules, (Stay away from any reptile!!!). It is nice to have that freedom, from constantly having to entertain them. All though the constant quad rides does get a little old after a while. (who am I kidding I love it and so does Grandpa Ragle) It was a nice relaxing week, of soaking up the sun, swimming, 4x4 rides, quad rides, campfires, and smores... who can ask for anything more? Oh and after 30 years of spending evey Spring Break in Baja I finally found Starfish. Yay for me, I had to leave them there to dry out in the sun. So everyone, (Family) hands off at Memorial weekend. Just kidding there is plenty to go around we found at least 20. For all of my siblings see you all at Memorial weekend I can't wait.
