Day 2, Ladera Ranch.

On Day two we woke up early, got dressed and headed back down to see Tanya and Marissa. Tanya is my best friend. We grew up together in Florida and then both moved to different states in middle school, but we stayed friends and during my summer vacations i would go visit her and her family for weeks at a time.
Since high school we both headed to Utah for college, but it seemed like we were always there at different times... her and i both got married and she now lives in California with her husband, Tim and their daughter Marissa.
We hadn't seen each other since her wedding back in 2006, so it was a much needed and not long enough reunion. Kate and Marissa finally met and played great together.
Right when i got there we went shopping, of course! We had fun carting our girls around and finding them some cute clothes. Again, we were so busy talking and having fun, i completely forgot to take pictures...
Then after the mall we headed to the beach for a little photo shoot! Kate and Marissa were loving the beach, especially the sand. I'm actually quite surprised that at some points Kate was literally swimming in the sand, what a crazy girl! Our day ended suddenly when i had to meet Daniel back at the hotel to go meet up with Danny and Stephanie for dinner.















































Tanya, wish we lived closer and could get together more often! Love ya! Hope to see you soon!

I had so much fun! I miss you tons already. Kate as usual looks so cute in these pictures. Too bad Marisa was feeling a little under the weather and wasn't as smiley. But still cute!
