Hangin’ out in Santa Cruz

I left my peeps in Oregon to drive down and see my California family. Here I am with mom and my baby bro…

Here is my bro, my mom, his girlfriend, and my niece. We all went out for a very nice dinner.

Visiting Mom

I drove down to see my mom for a few days. It was great to see her. The house was so quiet… coming home to my loud house a chaos was a bit of an adjustment!

Boardwalk 2012


My youngest loves the rides!


The girls played lots of games, this year they won squid hats and a slinky… I don’t even want to calculate the actual costs of their “prizes.”


I think even Grandma had a nice day.

What is up with these pants?


I’m visiting my mom so of course she is getting out all my old stuff that she wants me to take home… We Found some of my high school basketball gear and she swears these are my basketball pants but that can’t be true can it? They are ridiculous! But it all still fits! Yeah! 🙂
