A trip to the eye doctor!

It has been almost a year that Russ has really started to have a hard time with his vision. (READING!!!)  Today we finally went to the eye doctor's.  He gave a a very through eye exam... and I have a slight stigmatism... and Russ needs reading glasses!  HE said that both of our conditions would get worse as we get older!!!
After we donned our very fashionable eyewear, we needed to go to Target to pick up a few things.  We started in the women's sock section where there was a fabulous sale on the little toe socks that I wear with my Sunday shoes... well with BOTH of us having our eyes dilated... NEITHER of us could make out the sale price!!!  We had to depend on the kindness of strangers to tell us the prices on the little teeny price tags!!!

More from California

Russ in line @ Big THunder Mtn. (if you could call it a line)  Most days were great!  The worst one was the friday before Labor Day, but that was to be expected.
We decided to do the big all you can eat bar-b-cue lunch on our anniversary!  It was pretty good!
This is our hotel room.  We stayed at the recently renovated Red Lion, it was just 1 mile to the gates of disneyland!
This was our beautiful bathroom!

We're Back!!!

As most of you know by now...  Ben received his mission call to Atlanta, Georgia while Russ and I were in California on Thursday!!!  We thought it would be for sure 2 weeks and up to a month!!!  I'm glad he will be in the states... I think... looking at pictures, it looks like a really big city!!!  Does anyone have any info???  He will enter the MTC on December 9th!!!  Just 3 months.  I don't know yet if he will be there for Christmas OR if he will fly to Atlanta on the 23rd!?!  I will post more info as I get it!
This is Russ & I in front of Cinderella's castle.  It was 87% or more HUMIDITY each day that we were there!!!   We were dripping as soon as we went outside!  We stayed at the Red Lion hotel which was only 1 mile from disneyland and walked to and from once or twice a day!  Needless to say... many miles were put on my new flip flops!!!
This is Russ' 1st attempt at taking our pic. while he held the camera... I figured with his long arm it couldn't hurt!!!   We didn't take many pictures... but I will post a few more next time!!
