Happy 5th, Lover!

I still feel like jumping for joy :)


The stars at night are big and bright...

Kate and I are in the throes of prepping and planning our move to Austin, TX.  Flights have been booked, movers have been scheduled, boxes are coming out of storage, and lots more.  My company is moving our entire Santa Monica office to Austin, and we didn't want to be left behind.  We'll be heading out over Labor Day weekend.

There is a certain excitement that comes with any new adventure, but I'm going to miss a lot of the things sunny Southern California has to offer.  Outside of attending school and serving a mission, this will be my first time permanently living outside of LA.

Once the dust settles we'll have more on our move, new diggs, and Texas!


Beach Day

On Saturday we headed to the beach as a family to take advantage of this California summer. I cannot tell you how much this little boy LOVES the beach and ocean. And when you throw in a ball and Dad to play with, it's heaven!

This photo makes me so happy :)
 W will just keep walking out into the ocean as far as we'll let him, and no amount of sandy, wet face plants will stop him.
