My lovely 19 year old cousin Shannon, from Virgina, is on a mission.
A church mission in Australia for 6 months!
I was soooo excited when I learned she was having a 3 hour layover at LAX (we are in Orange County 25 minutes away). So my mom, my girls & I picked her up and took her for dinner and to see the Pacific Ocean. On the way she noticed all the palm trees (something we don't think twice about), she thought they were awesome!
It was a chilly 66 degrees out with a thick marine layer.....here is her very first time touching the Pacific Ocean:
