Hanging with the Short family (California trip part 2)

All the kids together at the beach
Isn't this homemade tepee neat!!!!
"I am pretty sure I rule this house!!!"
Double trouble for sure!
Look, we killed him!!!
o.k. here is another blurb about California. I am going to try to add a blurb each day this week so that I can get caught up on all the memories made while visiting Cali. One of the things we did while in Cali was visit one of Morgan's best buds from high school, Brandon Short. He was also in my ward growing up and my big sister was baptized with him on the same day so they are BB's or Baptism Buddies. He is a twin and he and his wife have twin boys Andrew and Ethan or Alligator and Elephant as I called them. They are so adorable and so full of energy!!! On Friday, they took us to Newport beach and we had a great time watching Brandon teach my kids how to body board and watching her twins dig in the sand and run around. Mandi (Brandon's wife) is really awesome and totally offsets Brandon's rambunctious attitude. He has just as much energy as his boys do and so Mandi has her hands full with those boys! Then on Monday evening they invited the kids and I over for dinner and family night and we had a great time. Family night consisted of singing one song because the boys were so rambunctious and so I felt right at home. The twins also took a liking to wrestling with Lund and actually took him down a couple of times as a team. They work great as a team and could be called Team Energy or Team Destruction or Team Cuteness, you get the picture.. Double trouble for sure. We really appreciated their hospitality and maybe next time we will take Morgan along with us so he can see his best bud for himself! He! He!!
