Hovercraft at the Harbor

This past weekend we went to Oceanside Harbor Days where the Marines lined up the beach with some pretty crazy vehicles and let the public climb all over them. My favorite was this hovercraft. It's a massive cargo carrier that puffs up and floats right across the water. We often see them off shore while the Navy and Marines are doing training maneuvers so it was really fun to see it up close. We were lucky enough to get to see it head back to Camp Pendleton, too. Check out the video I took of it leaving the beach, I got pelted with sand but it was totally worth it! 


I learned to surf!

Ok, well I was taught some surfing skills by this cute girl named Grace. We know the family through my knitting group and were at their new beach home for a party. Grace decided to go hit the waves and somehow I agreed to give it a try! I borrowed one of her wetsuits and a big soft board and took off down the steps. The waves were mild and the tide was going out so the whole experience was fun and mellow. We stayed in the water for about a half an hour. I caught a couple belly rides, turned the board back to the sunset and paddled out again. I managed to get up to my knees and had a ton of fun. Thanks, Grace!


A puppy party!


Tonight we got to meet this little cutie. Jaila came over to play for a while and this little 3 year old Boxer certainly wore out Henry and Lola. This happy girl was a ton of fun and a huge lover! She needs to come back again and bring her parents!


Jaala and Thomas

And just in case you missed him, here's my boy. Henry just turned eight and is still as crazy as ever!



Cake on fire!

gif maker

We went to a friend's fun 40th birthday party a few weeks ago and I managed to snap some pictures of his cake fully engulfed in flames. I thought it would make a fun animated GIF so I gave it a try using this app. It's kinda fun, maybe I'll have to make a few more of these!


Nothing like a new accessory

I got some new tights and I'm kinda in love. It's Monday and let's just say that it was a double cappuccino kinda morning. Mondays aren't my favorite days but these tights certainly helped me make it through.
