I know it has been a while since I have updated my blog, but like any great trip, life's splendor distracts us from taking many photos.


No we didn't install a satellite dish on our place. We explored the desks of the USS Iowa Battleship in San Pedro.



We couldn't pass up on a free bowl of mac and cheese at Corner Bakery.



 The Sunday before Halloween we visited Santa Clarita's very own Lumbardy's Ranch. Known for their hay rides, corn mazes and pumpkins of all sizes, Lumbardy Ranch was the perfect place to get in the harvest season mood.

Here is the only picture we took of us on Thanksgiving.

August Fun

August is a time to relax and savor the summer. Here we are enjoying some time before we watch a Beatles and a Beach Boys tribute band play at the Orange County Fair-plex.


 Just another photo of me and my little guy.

One of our last outdoor summer events was Oscars Outdoors. We went to the Hollywood Oscar headquarters and watched on their property Back to the Future. Oh the celebrities that statue has seen.

Tahoe Vacation

The moment we finished the eight hour drive, we had to go for a bike ride and stretch our legs. We found a bike path and it lead to a beautiful view of the lake.

The following day we embarked on a 9 mile hike around the west rim of the lake.


 View of Emerald Bay below.
 Then we went to Virginia City and saw some history. Here is a picture of a toilet Mark Twain used. Even famous authors even have more pressing matters than writing.
 Then we went back to the lake and enjoyed a beautiful dinner cruise.
 Your typical sunset.



 Lastly, on our way back from the Tahoe, we stopped at Mammoth and mountain biked and hiked.

Jen's Birthday

We started Jen's special day in Newport Beach where we rode our bikes on Orange County's strand.

Of course we had to go to Fashion Island and try on Lululemon clothes, eat cookies, and look at other fun things.

 The new cupcake place in Hermosa, Frosted, gives you free cupcakes on your birthday. How could Jen forfeit this?
 Later, Jen had dinner with her friends at Chef Hanna's in El Segundo.

Bringing Back the Blog With an Oldie but a Goodie

To bring back the blog back to life, we begin with a go to blog subject, Disneyland. We had the privilege of going to Cars Land and ride Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and Radiator Racers (via single rider entrance of course).

Christmas and New Year's

We started the festivities with breakfast with Travis' family.

Then we went to my sister's house and played games and got Cooties.
On Christmas morning we enjoyed Brett opening up his gifts. He is becoming more and more excited to open gifts as he gets older and older.

After the presents we shared in some leisurely moments where we played and relaxed.

For New Year's we took a road trip to Tahoe for spa treatments, skiing and silliness.

Christmas Photos

Travis picked out a beautiful tree.


Biking to the Manhattan Beach fireworks.

At Santa Clarita with my nephew, Brett.

Mom and dad enjoying larger than life candy canes.

All us girls crammed in the back seat to see the Torrance Christmas lights as we nibbled on some cookies. Jami sat in our trunk.

Christmas at Disneyland cannot be missed,

Even at night.



Everywhere you go, there are tall Christmas trees at Dland.
