I can't get enough time at the beach, and Happy B-day Dad!

We spend as much time at the beach as possible. Yesterday, the cold water felt great on my toes. It was such a hot day!

The tide was the lowest I have ever seen so David climbed into new crevasses that are usually covered by the water ...

...and came up with "Patrick." He tried to name him Ted, but I knew who he really was.

He was so excited but we knew that he had to go home to SpongeBob.

David took this photo of a big starfish nestled in with some sea urchins. I love the blue colors in this photo.

It was a much needed warm day.
I love taking pictures of this guy looking at the unusually low tide.

We ended the day watching a beautiful sunset

Most important, I want to say Happy Birthday Dad! I love this picture because it reminds me of the great times we had cutting down our own Christmas Tree in the mountains. You have always been such a fun dad. We all love you!!

Happy New Year!

Can I doubt that it will be a great new year when it starts out like this?

I promise that John is only drinking Sparkling Cider, or all of us for that matter.

I love having my cousins, Sarah and Ari around

Sarah and Dan

Here is Ari and Jeremy setting up the fun game we played

We didn't have fireworks, but we made our own noise!

Punch drunk and full of fun, Happy New Year Everyone
