To all of the wonderful people who we have "blog abandoned", here is an update as of December 2012. Josh and I have now been in CA for about 2.5 years. In the short amount of time we have been here we have experienced some pretty amazing things. We lived with a roommate and out of the things we had packed in our car from MS for 4 months.During that time,Turtle joined our family -- I was in heaven. Only one week after bringing Turtle home, Josh and I found out we were pregnant. We could have never imagined how our lives would change--and all for the better. Sophia has blown our minds. She is so perfect!
I see you....and yes, that is turtle in the background. Turtle loves the ocean, although, she was almost eaten not just once, but twice by sea lions. True story.
Sophia had just turned a year...The second week of June we toured Oregon Coast on our way to Seattle, WA.
On the way to Seattle, no problems with car sickness. On the way back, not so pleasant. We will just say I was experiencing some pretty familiar symptoms to when I was pregnant with Sophia - yup, baby number two let me know he was on the way.
Grandpa Larry and Sophia at the Flamingo in Las Vegas, NV...who wouldnt bring their 11 month old to Vegas!
Zion National Park with Grandma Pam and Grandpa Larry. We did the Angel's landing hike the next day. It required cables....a little bit of a nail biter. 6 people have died doing the hike, we were not 7,8,9 luckily.
Escaping the heat....it was going to be 110 at our house so we packed up and went to Tahoe for the weekend, of course Turtle loved it. At one point we had a women come over to us and ask if our dog was swimming just for the sake of swimming. Our reply - Yes, our dog entertains herself by splashing in the water and swimming in circles - no fetching required.
