A Summer full of Beach Days

Summer time is all about the beach for our family! Even though we had a super busy summer it felt like 90% of the time we were playing at the beach. So fun we love it!!

Here are some of our favorite places to go.
Blackies... such a great beach for kids to surf since it is so small and mellow there.









Surfing with the Surf Mama's. We would meet up with these cute kids and many more to swap surfing and watching kids. So much fun for all of us.


 

Then the River Jetties.. We love this place. So many friends, good waves for the kids, and fun times.




















At the end of the day we were so tired but always so happy!

Happy 14th Anniversary!

Well most years I say that it just keeps getting better... this year not so much with Tad's face ;). A couple of days before our anniversary Tad's forehead exploded. Some kind of cyst or massive zit or third eye started growing. It was kind of hilarious. He is always so good looking it is funny to see him  this way. 
Despite the third eye, we had a great 14th anniversary. My parents came down for the weekend and we got to go down to San Diego. We went to the San Diego temple, which was awesome because that is where we got married so many years ago.




We then checked into our hotel which was awesome.. and we won free parking! This made us really happy. It is super annoying when you have to pay for parking at hotels.



Then we went down to Old Town and ate at a yum Mexican restaurant. 



 The next morning we went running, ate a great breakfast, and then went shopping. I know so super random... but there were no waves and we both needed clothes. There was an outlet mall right by the boarder of Mexico.

 We then raced home to go to Jenna Sillasens baptism. That was really special to be at. We are so proud of Jenna and her decision to be baptized.



Then we ended the weekend going to downtown HB to eat but couldn't find anywhere to eat so we headed to crab cooker in Newport. We love that place!

So grateful for the last 14 years. Tad is amazing!
