No words needed!
Next stop: Coronado Island!

It takes a lot of energy to lose money two days in a row, so we decided we’d earned a little chill time at the beach.
Nice shiny clean feet pre-sand…
Nice dirty feet post-sand…
And finally back to shiny clean feet relaxing at the harbor!
Next stop: whatever we feel like! We’re on vacay!

We had a fun day; beginning with a long walk, a drive down to San Diego to visit with baby Jack, relaxed at the Harbor in the afternoon, then had a nice dinner at home and ended the evening with a Wii hula hoop marathon.
Next stop: casino.

Woo Hoo! The much anticipated family vacay has officially began! The morning started by me picking up BigSis, SisMama, BDot, and Tay at the San Diego airport.
Ya think they have enough luggage to last 10 days?
Then, we proceeded DIRECTLY to Bry’s house to introduce baby Jack to his great grandmama, great aunt, great uncle and second cousin.
Could there be anything more adorable than these sweet, little baby’s hands?
Then, as tradition has it, we always start off every visit with a trip to a local Mexican food restaurant for some yummy food and a couple of nice cold cervezas.
(Apparently BigSis was thirsty; cause while I was parking the car, she got a little head start on me.)
I’m so excited and grateful that my boss gave me the entire ten days off to visit with my family. We’ll be super, duper busy this week trying to cram in everything that we want to see and do, but we’ll be posting some photos along the way if we have anything fun to share!

He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sun rise.
Each year, we take this day, July 30th, to mention our Dad’s birthday. This is the fifth year that we haven’t been able to celebrate his birthday with him and we still miss him every single minute of every day, not just on birthdays or special occasions.
We loved our dad and we know how much he loved us. Even though our lives will never be the same without him, we choose to believe that he’s with us in spirit, even though not in body.

We’ve been busy little bees lately. Wanna guess what we were up to?
We made these…
put these together…
got the back yard ready for guests…
and tried to keep TomTom out of everything…
If you guessed we had a baby shower you’d be right!
Saturday we hosted the shower for Bry and his wife Rach’s soon-to-arrive little boy, so we spent a few days baking, cleaning, planning and crafting.
We had a lot of fun putting the shower together and can’t wait to share some of the ideas with you. We’ll be back soon with the recipe for the cheese crackers and the directions for the fabric-wrapped letters.
But for now, there are more important things to do on my last day in San Diego, like walking on the beach and eating more Mexican food. Adios!
