We just returned from a super fun family reunion in California.
The highs of this trip were:
|Kayaking with my 69 year old Grandma (she rocks!)|
|Getting PBR's (piggy back rides)|
|A million jumping photos|
|Shopping at SLO Swap Meet with Auntie V and finding lots of Shabby Chic treasures|
|Winning at Bunco|
|Lunching with my Point Loma roomies and their hubbs|
plus a couple new baby additions to the group :)
|Happy Hour at Embassy Suites|
|Endless hours of entertainment from MaMa and those kahluas and cream.|
|Jumping on the bed, of course|
|Shopping with the girls and getting a new coach purse|
|Oh yeah, Andrew got a tattoo.|
|Dinner with my bestie and friends|
|Meeting up with Texas friends at Pismo Beach. Small world!|
|Making sandcastles for Ethan to destroy :-)|
|Seeing my sister's play in Camria|
|This picture made us laugh hysterically. What do you think of my man legs?|
|Hitting 150,000 miles on the Camry. That was the only high for this sad car.|
|Seeing all of my dad's family and taking silly pictures at the beach.|
Nice nip-slip, uncle Sieb!
|swimming (near the shark tank - don't look nessie!) in las vegas|
|Anniversary dinner at Mario Batalli's restaurant in the Venetian.|
Thank you mom and dad hoag!
|Mid State Fair with family|
|Skipper's Beautiful Wedding!|
|San Diego with my furry little princess. And Maddie Bear too :)|
And now for the LOWS which coincidentally all took place on the
1300 mile drive back from Vegas to San Antonio:
|check engine light comes on. Andrew replaces coolant.|
|Monsoon hits in Arizone causing zero visibility. Eeek.|
|3 hours from home the grill fell off the front of the car. Here's Andrew recovering it off I-10.|
I am currently undecided if we will ever make this treacherous drive across country again.
Maybe if there were more shopping stops along the way!!!
