Surfing, reunion, and Texas

Well, it has been over a month again but lots has happened naturally. This time I have pictures to prove it.

Most recently, I just got back from the best weekend ever with Blake in Houston, Texas. Lots of good old bonding time, kayaking, good food, and relaxing. Blake's tradition is to make Sunday dinner and I got to help him make a traditional Venezuelan dish from his mission. Shredded beef, black beans, rice, and fried plantains. It was pure goodness. All fresh ingredients and tasty. I hope we make that again. Then after dinner it was a mad game of cranium with friends. It was amazing. I am still on a happy high.

A beautiful sunrise in Galveston. Yes, mom I actually was up that early hehehe

My Beautiful babies all decked out and ready to play. Here Blake is super bummed that the weather was crappy and too windy so we couldn't go kayak fishing. He really wanted to catch a shark. Yikes, I was just going to kayak and be the official photographer.

Happy Feet and plan B at Armand Ba…

Time Out for Women Slumber Party

Last weekend I got to go down to Seattle and go the the "Time Out for Women" conference. It was amazing!!!!!!! I totally had needed a time out. I got to whisk my sister away from her family and meet up with my Aunt and cousins at Mom's house. Poor dad, there were seven ladies in the house. Needless to say we were everywhere and it was a total slumber party. Well hardly a slumber party we could not shut up and talk late every night. Hehehehe

I love my family and it was awesome to meet the newest cousins. Kim, you are awesome. Sarah, Welcome to the family!!! You are amazing too.

Thanks dad for putting up with us and for making the best breakfast ever.

Toby the Wonder Dog!!!!

Blake and I are house sitting/ dog sitting again.
I love this dog. He is my adopted child.
Toby the Wonder Dog!!!!!
So last night I was giving Blake a head massage and Toby started growling at us.
It was pretty hilarious to see him soooo jealous of Blake. He is used to just me playing with him and giving him attention. He was wanting his doggy massage.
Hehehehehe what a funny dog.

We went to the dog park on Saturday for a sunny stroll and to play fetch. We found an awesome field right by the river with no other dogs around. It was perfect to play fetch. Or so i though.
Toby and i were having a great old time playing when all of a sudden a little yappy dog came cruising over to where we where. Boy did he want Toby's ball. They both started playing but then the other dog started to get nippy. I did not like that. Anyway I tried to get the dogs collar but he was to quick. Owner still cruising at the other end of the park with not a care.... I had enough so I finally got the ball and held it…
