The Tiptons made our way out west once again this year to Newport Beach, CA. There were 34 total in attendance, plus two pregnant people. I took a lot of pictures and on the last day I went to get my camera to take a picture of our cute beach house but my camera was gone, gone, gone. I figured, hoped and prayed that it had been packed away. Once we got home and unpacked, I realized it didn't make the trip home. The night before we left, Rick and I had visited his cousin, who had just arrived with her family, and were staying a few streets over from our pad. Luckily I left my camera there and was able to get it back the following week. That could have been bad.
