Happy Father's Day to all of the
fathers in my life.

San Clemente Camping Trip

San Clemente 2008

The sandy crew: the Mcdowell's, the Cooks, the Nelson's, and the Thompson's
Niki, Shelley, Kyra holding Tara, Melissa, and Lyric.
Chasing waves.

Ahh, camping at it's best... watching dvds in the car with Doritos.

Ashton, Camden, and Tatum
The men, deep in thought.
The perfect climbing tree.The novelty-lifeguard tower shot.

Sand mermaids, sharks, and octopuses.

"Anything tastes good camping." -Ryan

Little Lyric Lu-Lu

Lyric...sweet baby girl... a little bigger each day... smiles that melt your heart... deep belly laughs... the occasional, accidental roll-over... a never-ending supply of slobber... perfect, edible toes... adorable little hands with a death grip for hair pulling... so much patience for her brother who's love is a little on the rough side... sweet admiring eyes towards her big sister... my bright-eyed beauty.

My Davis

...little fingers reaching to scan the counter tops looking for something that he isn't suppose to have... pirate invasions on My Little Ponies... wearing basketball shorts like daddy... teasing his big sister... protecting his little sister... building forts... eating anything his big sister eats, refusing anything she won't eat... high level of noise at all times... sneaking out of his bed to play in his room at all hours of the night and still getting up at 5am... getting the bad guys with a magic wand... loving everything Spiderman, without a clue of who Spiderman is... begging to wear his shark shirt every day and his "ye-haw cowboy jammies" every night... sweet, sometimes boogery kisses... unconditional love... my little boy.

Ok, this is ridiculous!

It is official, we are now paying, between $4 and $5 a gallon for gas. Some cities in California are over $5. I never thought this would happen in my lifetime. Not really sure what can be done about it, except drive less. It is very frustrating, I fill like I should be filling my car with melted Godiva Chocolate at these prices. Ryan has become a hypermiler. Definition: a driver who does anything and everything to get the best mileage out of his car. So if you see a charcoal gray civic going 55mph on the freeway, please don't honk, it is probably my hubby.
