17 mile drive...and then some...

We of course had to do the infamous 17 mile drive.
Ryan was in Nikon D80 heaven. He got some great shots!And Leah was pretty good. For most of the drive, she was either doing this:or this:
And when she woke up, she was great about getting in and out of the car to see the different sites. Her favorite was Pebble Beach, I think. She ignored all signs and tried to hop the barrier to get onto the 18th hole. Hmmm...
I was able to pay my final respects to my fav golfer EVER, Payne Stewart. Eat your heart out, golfers. This place was AMAZING. And we felt hoity toity just walking around.
The drive home was nice...and we stopped in Gilroy to check out the outlets. Um, we'll be going back. WOW!

Wow, your man has some talent! I don't think this is somewhere David should ever go. I don't want him getting any ideas about $400+ games of golf!

Maren, It's been so fun looking at your photos and reading about your adventures! Leah is such a doll! I think you have captured every mood she has. I love photoshop! I took an online class, and I have had a lot of fun with it. Your pictures look great! We are having the family reunion at our place this year. You probably got a letter from Todd. Come run the Teton Dam marathon! Trev and Lance are training for it. I think I will do the Kiddie run. :) Tell your Mom hi. Love ya,

Your favorite Aunt - dixie :)
