Nathan Passed the Boards, and we Celebrated by going to San Diego!!!!


You did Great Daddy – and WE LOVE YOU!

A month or so ago, we decided to meet Nathan’s brother, Tristan, and his family in San Diego for a weekend getaway.  We were able to rent a nice hotel, play at the beach, and walk the pier.  All in all, it was a fantastic weekend and a wonderful way to celebrate Nathan’s passing of the Boards.  We are so proud of our Daddy!

These 2 girls LOVED the sand.

Everyone was able to get a lot of playing time in, and Christine and I were even able to play in the water with our hubbies.


Nathan and I went body boarding – one of my favorite things to do at the beach!


Tristan’s friend met us on the beach, and taught both Nathan and Tristan how to surf.  They were both able to get up, but didn’t get to stay up for very long.  However, they did have a lot of fun learning, and will probably be doing it again on our next trip this fall.


Walking the Pier was a great relaxing way to finish our weekend.  Plus, I enjoyed some delicious clam chowder!

Oh – and don’t you think Natalie and her cousin, Carter, are so cute?


I loved listening to this guy!  He was fabulous.

We can’t wait to go back to San Diego.
