Happy February!

Happy February! It seriously crept up on me. I keep looking over my shoulder for January but alas it is over and so we press on into a VERY busy month. Birthdays run rapid in our families in February. On top of our normal busy schedules we have a couple quick day trips along with a party for an announcement I can't tell you about yet because it's for someone who swore me to secrecy. Ha! I love being mysterious. ;) On to the less absent minded ramble.......Dan snapped this fella hanging out at the bottom of the hill in the rain. Isn't he beautiful!!

The girls and their friends are hard at work clearing the area for their club house and making plans for the building project this Spring. I made these cookies and cupcakes for them and they walked around to all of our neighbors selling them. They made $20. I mean how could you tell those sweet kids no? Especially for money for a club house. ;)
This has got to be the most pitiful face ever..........

Thanks to my mom watching the girls and the horse dog, Dan and I were able to sneak up to the bay area for a few days.


This coming week Dan and I will celebrate our 16 year wedding anniversary. Yay for us! :) The San Benito House is a little bed and breakfast above a saloon in Half Moon Bay where Dan and I spent our first wedding anniversary. It's a historical building with claw foot tubs, four poster beds and no T.V.'s etc. in the rooms. We drove over to take pictures and walk around the town. Just remembering how young and naive we were 16 years ago was funny.

This is the original jail in half moon bay......

This is the house I told Dan he could buy me.....$2 million....pocket change really. ;)

We stumbled into a used book store and then over to a coffee house to warm up....

Beautiful old church.......

Before heading home we hiked around the hills near the Golden Gate Bridge....It was a bit hazy that day buy seriously is there ever a bad day to photograph the bridge? Nope!

It was cold and windy but the sun was out so these guys took full advantage of catching some rays....

I could have sat here all day watching people sail the bay.....


It's fun to see how the coast changes when you go farther up north....
We hiked up to the top of these old military bunkers to get a view of the other side of the bay. Stunning really.

 
And of course I had to snap a picture of the ballet for Morgan. :)

It's really been 16 years? I always remember meeting you two right before you got married :-) So glad you could get away and refresh.

Loved all your pictures. I would love to go to California one day! You can buy that house for 2 million and I'm sure there are plenty of spare bedrooms for us to stay :) Happy Anniversary!
