Mom & Dad's Pad--Abilene TX.

Now that life has started to get somewhat settled, I am attempting to catch up on some of my blogging. It's been a busy past few months so these will be fun "re-cap" posts.
On our drive out to CA from KY (while we were moving out here) we were able to stop and see Mom & Dad at their home in Abilene TX. We had a quick visit with Dad and then picked up Mom to drive the rest of the way out to Cali with us for a visit. It was so fun getting to see where they lived, have a tour around the town and step into their lives for a minute. We also got to see Dad's office at the Burnett Law Firm where he works and even had time to sneak in a meal at our favorite Texas Roadhouse! It was a fast but fun visit! Roscoe loved being able to see Nana and Poppa too and run all around their place! Love you guys!

Happy Birthday Steve!

Well...he's now a wise old man of 33. This weekend we celebrated Steve's birthday to the fullest! Sunday we had a fun BBQ with family, complete with games, Zobmondo, lots of food, talking, laughing and ....the Chocolate Motherlode cake from Claimjumper made its debut and just may be a birthday favorite of all time! We had a great time. Then Monday, (Steve's actual birthday!) we started off the morning by going sea kayaking in La Jolla and going on a tour of the caves! It was awesome--the best part was when tons of dolphins started swimming right around us. It was amazing to see and be that close to them! After kayaking, we went to Sea World, where we spent the day with Steve's family. It was so much fun. We went to shows--Pet's Rule, Shamu, Blue Horizons, Sea Lions, and even saw the Shamu Rocks show that night and ended the day with fireworks!!! Quite the celebration. I am so grateful to have Steve in my life. He makes me so happy! Our life is wonderful together and I couldn't imagine anything more. Happy Birthday sweetie! I love you so much!

We Heart Solana Beach!

As many of you probably know, last month we made a HUGE move from our home in Vine Grove, KY (where we'd been living for the past 4 years) to San Diego, CA. It was bittersweet as we were sad to have to say goodbye to many good friends but excited to be close to friends and family in Cali again. We found an adorable place in Solana Beach and are in the process of getting settled into our new home. Steve is officially out of the army now and working in a private dental practice in La Jolla. We love being so close to the ocean and having such a "walk-able" beach town area to enjoy with Roscoe. It has such a fun feel here and we are enjoying discovering all the great little places to eat and hang out. We feel like we are able to get the small town feel with plenty around us to do! We love to jog to Dog Beach in Del Mar and let Roscoe run loose!! It really is a great place to live. We are loving Solana!
