Parades and Waves in 2009

Abel surprised me for Christmas/our 6th anniversary with tickets to the Rose Bowl Parade on New Years Day in Pasadena, CA. It was awesome! It has always been a dream of mine to go and see the beautiful floats in person. We had beautiful weather and a great time. It is amazing to see what they can do & how detailed they can be with the natural materials! Special memories....

Abel has had the month of January off- his classes don't start for a few more weeks. So we've enjoyed living life at a more relaxed pace. The last two weeks we had unbelievable weather as well, so we took advantage of it all and spent a lot of time outdoors. It did not seem like January- blue skies, warm temperatures, it was the best. We actually went to the beach & I got out of the car! =) On MLK day we went to West Marin and explored Point Reyes. We attempted to see whales migrating south, but they were way off in the distance. We had a really fun day with our new friends Ethan & Brandy. Have I mentioned how much we love it here? =)

So, that's all for now. We've got lots of visitor
s coming this semester which will be great! More news and pictures to come...thanks for being patient. Hopefully I'll get to update during the next semester and it won't be another 4 months....but wow, does time fly!

Jenn's updates from 2008

Okay, so it's only been 4 months...I can't imagine anyone still checks our blog- but I'm determined to get some new pictures up.
I'll start with parents came to visit and it was great showing them around.

Then we went home for Christmas! We got in just in time to watch Izaac's last Tball was hilarious. We miss Izaac and Izabella lots- it wouldn't have felt like the holidays if we couldn't be home with our family.

Alright, I'm going to post these and then work on what's happened in 2009 so far. Thanks for hanging in there with us!
