Spring Break with Han and Leia

Hannah has a boyfriend.  I know.  Stand back.  They are together ALL the time.  They have several classes together and I rarely see one without the other.  It's a good thing I like Dylan and he is doing his best to stay on my good side. I'm sure there are similar observations at the other household.  :)

Dylan and his family are HUGE star Wars fans (and I thought my older kids were Star Wars fanatics).  His birthday was right before Spring Break.  He was about to spend 10 glorious days with his family in California... duh duh duh... without Hannah.  Think I am funny, I got him a Han and Leia doll set for his birthday.  The plan was that he would take Leia to California and Han would stay in Oregon with Hannah.  Each day they would take pictures of their adventures with Han and Leia.  This is the result.

Leia headed to sunny California with Dylan.

Han went to see Diary of Anne Franke with Hannah.

Han made cookies with Hannah.

Leia played with Dylan's sisters in California

Han enjoyed a Backyard camp out with Hannah


Leia worked on her tan

Han had a photo shoot at the park









Leia did too.











Han played with Hannah's family...

and John Hatch.

Leia played with Dylan's extended family and was quite impressed with the genetic fashion sense.

Han Skyped with McKay and Lenayah.

Leia played a round of pool...

and got some more photos in a photo booth.

Han helped Hannah for days with her scholarship applications and Pageant assignments.


He even agreed to a tea party...

... eventually Han and Hannah had enough...

Meanwhile, Leia played games...


... and worked on her tan at the pool...


Han went to see Allegaint...

Leia went to see Superman vs. Batman...

Sadly, one day, Han had to stay home while Hannah went bowling with John Hatch... that was a disappointing day...

Han did get to go to John Hatches house for dinner and a nice game of Curses...

... flirt with John Hatch's wife Laura...

... and eventually Han gave up on Curses and played Minecraft with John instead.

Han went to the beach with Hannah...

Han and Hannah got Dylan a Star Wars game at an antique shop... really.

He called shot gun...

Han shared a "hand dipped shake" at a swag 60's Cafe in Lincoln City...

and played cards there too!



Han tried to figure out what the blue stuff on the beach was... we think it was dead baby jelly fish but, who knows?

Han helped Hannah play Frisbee on the beach...

There was a moment when Han was lost - he fell off the desk and was lost in the bottomless pit of mom's room, and Leia was lost - after removing all bags from the car and tearing them all apart she was found in the sleeve of Dylan's coat... odd.  Eventually Leia came home when Dylan returned to Monmouth.  I can't be certain, but I suspect Dylan didn't even unpack before he came to reunite with Hannah and Han and Leia were together again.

I know.  It was silly.  But I would think this little exercise made the parting a little sweeter.  It certainly entertained the rest of us!
