Okay, okay, so we don't really have dial up internet, but it sure feels that way with the way it's been moving lately. It's pretty ridiculous- hence the lack of pictures.
Our summer has been going along swimmingly. I think we've actually taken fewer trips this year than we usually do, but it's been nice to hang out at home... ya know, chillin' with Daisy, going swimming... all that goodness. There have been a couple trips though. The most recent was a camping trip to the coast with the youth group. We went to McGrath state beach (near Oxnard) and stayed Wednesday through Sunday. (We got home a week ago yesterday.) It was a blast! I think that may have been the best ocean swimming Caleb and I have ever enjoyed! We got to do some boogie boarding, and try skim boarding, which we hadn't ever done before. Caleb was really good at it! On the second day I tripped on a skim board (when I was trying to be nice and pick it up) and would have done a face plant in the water had I not stuck my hands out to save myself. Unfortunately in doing so, I shoved my super nice digital camera into the ocean water. Brenda, if you read this, the adorable strap you gave me worked great! If only it had been a matter of dropping it... So yeah, my camera is dead. It took some doing, but I managed not to let that ruin the rest of the trip, and we had a fabulous time.
Our next trip (assuming I am able to get my license at the end of this month) will be another coastal camping trip, only this time it will be even better because we're going with family!
Can't wait to see you Emily!!! Oh yeah, or y'all Zachary, Brenda, Katie, and Justin!!!! =)
Oh, fine. I'll try to load a picture. The post just seems so boring without one.There you go. =)
