2 weeks...

it's amazing that our entire life was packed into these boxes.school has started and we are just hangin' out until the 5th. That's when the the movers come for our final packout. then we are off to Vegas to see my mom and Todd and Craig. it's going to be great! i can't wait! we are taking the kids and the grandparents! our last hoooorah, before we head out...

over the weekend we hit the Santee Spray grounds and the beach. here are a few pics!
the boys are loving boogie boarding! i am amazed that Colby has absolutely no fear of the ocean and the waves. He lets the undertoe take him out and he actually swims in the waves! underwater! geez, he just turned 4!!! he's going to be our extreme sports guy! i love it! he's really not afraid of anything.Jonah tried. it was cute. he was scared at first, but soon got the hang of it. Iron Man joined us at the beach...
and soon met his fate....
look at my studly hubby!!! yeah, he's hot!

ins and outs

things around here are moving right along. some days are frustrating. like when you go into the kitchen to cook a meal for your family, then realize that you have nothing to cook the pasta in, or that you can't make enchiladas because you don't have a baking dish, or measuring cups to measure rice....ugh. But there is definitely something to be said about this minimalist lifestyle...let go of the clutter and you are free....

less than a month to go....how scary. and exciting.

today we are off to the beach! yeah!

bare bones

we are down to the wire. only 34 days and a wake up until we are off to Spain. The movers came on Wednesday and Thursday for the *pack out* now we are living on bare bones. We stocked the rooms with lovely air mattresses and our clothes are in our suitcases. We took one of our outdoor furniture sets and moved it into the dining room for our table and got this cutie little futon from Target! as you can see, Jonah found it very comfortable. The kids are having a rough time with this transition. They are bonkers! they do'nt know what to do. but we are adjusting. We are heading to Vegas on the 7th of September for a week, then to the Navy Lodge for 2 nights before we embark on our 15 hour flight! woo hooo! it's going to be quite and adventure.

On Saturday my dear friends little boy turned 2 so we drove down to the OC to celebrate! it was a good time. lots of kids to play with!
more soon.
