Fun, Friends, and The OC

Our good friends from law school Eric, Amy, Livy and London came for a visit for Easter. We had a blast showing them around the OC. On Friday we drove by the Newport Beach temple. We walked along main street on Balboa Island and found a great little Mexican restaurant for lunch. It was so yummy. We rode the Balboa Island ferry to the fun zone, where Doug and Livy rode the ferris wheel.

Amy, Livy and Liz got toe rings in Newport Beach and we walked along the pier at Newport. The weather was beautiful and the beach was lovely. That night we went to dinner at Houston's which is a great steak and rib restaurant. The food was amazing as always. We stayed up late talking and watching movies...just like old times in law school.

On Saturday, we decorated some Easter eggs then we went to the Irvine Spectrum and walked around. Livy rode the Merry-Go-Round and we took a spin on the ferris wheel. We stopped into a pet store and found a Cavalier king charles spaniel puppy, which we all fell in love with. How could you not...look at that cute face! We stopped by Sprinkles in Newport Beach, which is a bakery that sells cupcakes. We waited in line for 40 minutes...crazy huh?! The cupcakes were a pretty tastey treat! We ate dinner at Tortilla Flats, which was so yummy. That night Shelley (Doug's sister), Mike, Matthew, Emily, Hyrum and Kylee stopped by and Livy and Emily became instant friends.

Sunday was Easter and we awoke to find that the Easter Bunny had made a stop and had left us lots of Easter treats. We had so much fun and it seems like the weekend went by way too fast.
