Carlsbad, California..... Another Hall Family Adventure (aka. Martin Family Adventure)

Brian and Jill, out of the goodness of their hearts, invited the Martin family up to Carlsbad, California to spend a week all together in a beach house. The main purpose of the trip was to give their four children the California theme park experience. Nineteen of us, everyone on the Martin side except for Russell and Nicole, packed into the four bedroom house for the week and got set for fun. We enjoyed eating, talking, laughing, card games, movies, sleep, the beach, and theme parks. Among the list of parks that various family groups attended were Wildlife Safari, Disneyland, Legoland, and SeaWorld. There was never a dull moment and I feel confident that everyone had a great time all together. Thanks once again Jill and Brian for the great trip.
While visiting Cameron and Rachel's house we took some family pictures. Here is Mom and Dad Martin
