Mitch and Luke

Mitch, Luke, (and Neil in the left corner) waiting to catch some waves.


Could he look any more like a surfer dude?

Paige and Owen

Owen the cool boogie boarder

Owen even got into the boogie board act with his older bros. He's usually a scardey pants with most everything but this time he surprised us. We had to pull him out of the water when it was time to go.

Our mini vacation in San Diego

A week before school started we decided to take a little trip to San Diego to hang out at the beach and boogie board. We had an awesome time! The kids weren't quite used to the cool evenings and begged for their sweatshirts.....nothing like living in bako where it's still 95 at 10:oo pm. We used to live in San Diego once upon a time and I think I caught the bug again. Sheesh!....the things we don't appreciate when we have them. I told Matt "I could so live here again!" What a beautiful place!! Anyway......we stopped off in Temecula (where we also used to live) on our way home and visited with some friends and drove around our old neighborhood. We have some great memories from there!

Happy 15th birthday MITCH

Mitch with a few of his buddies on his birthday.....okay so his birthday was almost a month ago (July 31) but least i'm posting! (jake, luke, mike, lyle, and mitch)

After two long years Mitch got his braces off yesterday. We took this picture before he left for the ortho. He's a happy guy now but he's not so much lovin' the retainer and his teeth feel slippery. (see next pic)


And this is what nearly $4,000 bucks will get you.... What a handsome guy!
