California. best vacation ever.

Well I came home to a dead computer. And now I have an enormous laptop sitting on my lap so I’ll add a little dialogue to these pictures. They make me smile.

Ev did great on the planes out there but she didn’t sleep much. She was just blearily waking up when we arrived into San Luis and with all the commotion and exclamations over her, she had a meltdown and just wanted to bury her head into my neck. It was so sad and kind of adorable.


It was our first time to see my parents new abode and I loved it. Some of it also made me laugh. For instance, Davey’s true garage apartment. He had to go to a furniture store to buy a headboard for his bed because every time he would leave out the garage door, his pillows would fall off. Such a unique problem.20140205-205832.jpg

When my parents left the ranch, they left the ranch cats there. So naturally, the first thing they acquired was the neighbor cat, Noodle. He enjoys bossing the dogs around and his favorite chair. Noodle and I have some spectacular hair in this picture.20140205-205854.jpg

You might notice Dad’s neon hat making its way into several pictures.20140205-205912.jpg

So good to see Cody and Tessa again.20140205-205925.jpg

We didn’t see as much of Cody as we would have liked because he would constantly disappear down the beach to play with a new adopted family. And then hours later mom’s phone would ring, ‘Um, do you have a dog named Cody?’. And off we’d run to go get him, seriously miles away.20140205-205946.jpg

Tessa is a little more be by you.20140205-210000.jpg

Here’s the hat again. Dad really liked to have Evelyn do her sit ups.20140205-210028.jpg

We went out to the Jetty at Morro Bay and saw some amazing waves.20140205-210048.jpg

I really hated posting this on instagram for all my dear Virginia friends but just couldn’t help myself. It was so wonderfully hot. Not a bad view either.


Seriously the best part of the trip-taking Evelyn outside in just a onesie and letting her enjoy the great outdoors. She would go crazy, kicking up a storm and chattering to beat the band. So much fun.20140205-210137.jpg

Mom let me know that black and white really stimulates babies, so every day, they’d sit down to read the paper together. Ev did enjoy it.20140205-210200.jpg


Likewise, a little reading time with Poppi. And the hat. Kind of like the man with the yellow hat. Only neon.20140205-210237.jpg

So wonderful to see my grandparents with Evie. She spent a lot of quality time with Grama.20140205-210310.jpg

It’s nice waking up to that.20140205-210349.jpg

Cousins! So much fun seeing the fam bam.20140205-210412.jpg

So cozy.20140205-210436.jpg

Wow. This picture makes me want to go back.20140205-211422.jpg

Hmm. This one too.20140205-211409.jpg


Jen Jen getting some quality time at Firestones. This place just never disappoints.20140205-211455.jpg

Ahh. Those were the days my friend.20140205-211519.jpg

Cousins! I think it’s been since my wedding that I’ve seen some of you! Too long. Wonderful games of Tellestrations, thanks for introducing us.20140205-211530.jpg

Our one gray day. Just as pretty.20140205-211540.jpg

A good trip indeed.20140205-211552.jpg

About A Story of Us

My grandparents 57th wedding anniversary and my first wedding anniversary motivated to journal the adventures life brought our way . I hope to amuse the friends and family I have all over the country and, when I am my grandmothers age, look back at what I have written and chuckle. It's been four years since I began and the snickers I bring myself as I look back propel me to write on. Cheers to the future and happy memories of the past.
