Happy Birthday to Me!

Well the trip is winding down! Today we leave for Calabasas to spend a day and a half with Steve's sister Mary. This has been a whirlwind of a tour! We have seen so much and had so much fun! All except for the hound of baskerville that has been outside our window here at the condo for 2 nights! He did not stop making noise all night and the owner slept perfect!!! I'm losing tract of days here, but I just thought I would let you in on where we've been and show just a couple of pictures! Are you tired of them yet? We have ALOT of pictures!! Friday we went to see the big trees at Sequoia and to Kings Canyon! They were beautiful and Kings Canyon (the high sierra's) was again breathtaking!!! Saturday we traveled to the coast. On the way stopping to see the elephant seals! Big, Ugly, but adorable too! Their blubber issues go far beyond mine!!! To keep it short or shorter, yesterday we went to Pismo Beach and the group of guys and one girl went boggy boarding! For the most part it went well! The two oldest boys (I'm mean Bern and Steve) stayed out the longest and were walking like crips latter on! They were like two little boys!! Jeremiah and Bekah did good! Jeremiah didn't think so but I have a picture of him catching a wave! Bekah didn't like swallowing all the salt water! After that we had a great meal of fish and chips (delicious!)
My two Boggyboading dudes!

The whole group (minus Kyle) entering the surf!

Two studly surfer dudes Tracy and I picked up on the beach!

Bekah catching a wave!

Last but not least I guess, today is my 44th birthday! I can't think of a better place to spend it then with my family traveling down the California coastline! This has been a trip of a lifetime for our family! I don't think we will ever be able to do something like this again, what with gas and all! We have seen wonderful snapshots of the state of California and made some great memories! Jeremiah and Bekah have gotten to know their California cousins better and had a great time with them!

The trip looks like such fun! I thought of you when I saw the news about the fires near Yosemite.

Enjoy your day!

Happy Birthday Hon! I know it's a day late but we were a little busy trying to get back home yesterday! I'm sure you've heard by now that we ended up spending the night in Miami Sunday. Lots to tell you about the trip to Haiti! I can't wait to hear more about your trip!!
