One of the things I love most about our trips to Catalina is how everyone can find something to do there that they love.
I had been feeling sick so I spent most of our week there reading and relaxing in the house.
Nicholas wanted to be out so he went lobster diving every evening and enjoyed time riding bikes and playing football with the other guys.
and the moms did an amazing job keeping all 11 of us nourished =)
One day, we all drove up to the Avalon Airport and hiked around.
Nicholas and Jonathan of course decided to sneak up on a herd of buffalo and almost were killed (my life is never without adventure married to that man).
To celebrate New Years, my mother-in-law planned a Murder Mystery, which turned out awesome! Nicholas and I had been to one before but this one was really entertaining
because everyone really got into their parts.
The murder happened in a western town called ROADKILL, so I'll leave you to imagine the accents and plots =)
All of Nicholas' family was there, his mom and dad, his two sisters, and both of their boyfriends.
And then our good family friends Carolyn, Andy, and Rachel.
Here are some pictures from the night.

The next morning we were woken up by the parentals and forced
to go on a little field trip in our pajamas...
we ended up at a a sweet restaurant that was having a Pajama Party for New Years day. The video above is a clip from us walking into the restaurant, its hard to tell, but the band that is playing is a group of 70+ year olds in their jammies!
