So, back at the end of June, we had a friend's wedding to attend in California, and it gave us the best excuse to drive out there! We hadn't been to CA for, oh, about 9 months, so it was nice to see everyone again.
One of the most important trips was to go see Stephanie and her new baby girl, my new niece, Allyn.

|Nathan and Grandma Lyons. :)|

|And Steph and Ally with Freddy and Jason.|
Fun, right?! I like Stephanie, and she's even more fun now that she has a little baby. It was great to be able to spend a few hours together! :)
