In the OC

We went on our first mini-trip of the summer... down to the OC. I got a new camera and I'm so jazzed! I've had my oldie for 7 years, and it's such a dino. It worked good for me when no other would work with my old computer, but I was so ready for this smaller, faster, and higher quality camera. I had a fabulous time trying it out!!!

First we spent the day with my mom, sis and nephews, including the 18 month old twins. Makes for an entertaining, yet extra sandy day. Such cutie-pies!!

After that we went to eat at one of my favorite places to eat, The Gypsy Den. We usually go to the one in Santa Ana, in the Artist Village. A good day to go is on the first Saturday, monthly, for the Santa Ana Art Walk.

Before I left my mom's I had to get some pix of her garden. Here we have The Tiki Room, created by Grandma and boys.

My mom really knows how to create a delightful garden. This is one of her ponds.

She's lucky to have such beautiful water lilies blooming. And I'm lucky to have a new camera to take such lovely shots!!
