Beach weekend with the family and my lover!

Ok guys!!! I am caught up with blogging after this! WOOHOO! I didn't think I would get this much done today. :)

So, this weekend as sort of a celebration of being done with school and because Nick has been working so hard for so long we decided to join my family at their beach condo down in Oceanside for the weekend. We left on Saturday morning early and joined them for a big breakfast of eggs, potatoes, meat, and bagels. Then, we all headed down to the beach and enjoyed some of the biggest and craziest waves I have seen in a LOOOOOOOONG time. My sisters loved having Nick there and buried him in the sand-turning him into a pregnant mermaid!

Nick's mom joined us and that was fun. We went swimming in the pool/jacuzzi when it got colder and then had yummy chili and a surprise birthday party for Heidi (she was in Romania on her actual birthday) in the evening. Then, Nick and I drove home because we had to teach sunday school the next morning. Right after we were done with Sunday school, we both jumped in our cars and drove down again for another day of fun. We were a little burnt and tired but niether one of us wanted to pass up a beautiful day in the sea. :) My family was leaving that afternoon, so we were at the beach for about 5 hours with them until they left and then helped them pack up. They had the condo for Sunday night and couldn't stay so they offered it to us! :) It was awesome having a beachside condo all to ourselves for a night... it really felt like we were far far away from hot po-dunk ramona and on a little minature vacation. :) We had a blast! We went to the 101 cafe for dinner (good-definately recommended). Then, we went back to the condo and watched a cheesey action movie and made/ate homemade pazookie (hot cookies with ice cream) for dessert. IT WAS AWWWWWWWWESOME! After the movie, we had a Speed (fast card game) tournament... in which I won every game thank you very much! hehe. By this time we were tired and headed to bed. It was so nice and relaxing... I really need a getaway like that about 2-3 times a year. :) This morning we woke up, went to Oceanside cafe for yummmy breakfast burritos and coffee before Nick drove back to work and I drove to Palomar for a notebook grading and schoolbook run. Oh, forgot to mention I got extremely fried (which will hopefully turn into a little color before I go back to albino) and I sliced my thumb open with a mini conditioner bottle. Yeah... I am talented

Here are the only pictures we have since I forgot my camera. I took these on my cell phone and they will have to do hehe!

I will try and write more regularly now that I am caught up (even when school starts again... promise). I am also making a vow to comment on blogs I read so people know I read them... I want people to do it on mine so I should do it to others....monkey see, monkey do right?

Love you all! Look forward to getting to know everyone who reads and getting to know those I already know better.

Peace out!

Sounds like a great beach vacation! Glad you had fun! I don't think I've ever played Speed. I love card games!
