Roller Skates and Waves

Since Sydney is on a roller skating kick,
she has been begging to go to a roller rink
since her birthday. There was one about 1/2 hr.
from my parents house, so we made it happen.
My mom and I were pretty proud of ourselves.
We often went when I was little, and I guess it's
like riding a bike...you never forget. It wasn't
pretty and graceful, but we did it! The best part?
The kids weren't very good, so we got to hold hands
for 2 hours. Summer, even! That's huge!!!
Towards the end of the 2 hours, the kids were
doing pretty well. I don't think they will be
professionals by any means, but we all had fun.
Thanks for making it happen Syd and Grammy.
On New Years Eve Day, we headed out on some hikes
in Laguna Niguel. We are loving the new discoveries
in my parents new town. Brad found this little spot
last year, and boy is it beautiful!!!
Scoop loves coming to visit my parents. She has
never been on so many walks in her life!
We love Grammy! She always keeps our days
packed with fun and adventure. We are so lucky!
We ended the afternoon by going down to the beach
with Scoop. The weather was wonderful, the beaches
were secluded, and our dog was the one and only
swimmer. It is so much fun to watch her pounce
through the waves. Another beautiful, Southern
California day. We just wish Jason was here!!!

We go roller skating a few times a year-so much fun (as long as you don't fall)
