BEACH DAY IN CARPENTERIA

August 2014

We finally made it to the beach again this summer.  This time around we were invited by a few close friends of ours.  Being that the weather was perfect and Liam loves the beach, we decided to plan a day in Carpenteria.  We packed up an ice chest full of snacks, beverages,  beach blankets, and chairs.  And, of course, we packed a few beers… because what’s a trip to the beach without a few Coronitas? (insert splash of lime here).

Such an awesome place to be! Our friends camped in their toy hauler the entire week right by the ocean. Something too consider doing with the kiddos in the future.  We didn’t stay the night, but we did in fact stay to watch the sunset.  We ate BBQ burgers and fries.  So good. So bad.  But definitely worth every bite.  It’s Fall season now and California is still blazing hot.  Maybe another trip to the beach?

Happy Fall!!!

Baby Liam’s First Trip to Washington D.C.

It’s been a month already and I haven’t had a chance to post anything lately.  I don’t know how the heck mommy bloggers do it!  If any of you read this please send me some blog tips for a working mom.  So Let me start by catching up on a couple of trips Liam and I took back in March while Tim was away for work.  Yes, March.  I’m so behind it’s ridiculous, but I want to post these two trips because Liam and I had quite the adventure.  Let’s start with a visit to Virginia to see my Aunt Frances, Uncle Robert, and the rest of the A-Team family.

March 11- March 16
