I got to go HOME!!!!!

November 23, 2011

I took one of my four day weekends to go home. It had been over a year and a half since I had been back to california, so it was nice to be home to say the least.  My weekend was jam packed of family time.  Saturday started at 0800 for Shane’s graduation from the Rio Hondo Fire Academy.  Lots of people were able to make it out to help celebrate this special day with him.

Then for dinner we all met at Frantone’s Pizzeria to celebrate Shane’s hard work as well as to surprise my Grandma and Grandpa Van Essen with a 50th Wedding Anniversary Party. Some of their friends were able to make it out to celebrate with them.

On Sunday, we took family photos since all of the Van Essen side was in So Cal.  So my Grandma & Grandpa, Stacy (youngest sister) and her family, Lisa (middle sister) and her family and my mom (oldest) and our family went to a park in Cerritos and took pics then headed back to mom and dad’s for lunch. The rest of the day I spent relaxing and watching football!
