Beach Getaway

DSC02876

Well, hello there! I’m finally back. :) I took a little break, mostly because we’ve had computer issues. After 9 years, my laptop was finally ready for retirement. Hopefully, this new one lasts just as long.

Anyway, I’ve got lots to blog about!

Starting with our beach getaway last weekend!

Warning: There might be an OVERLOAD of pictures of our littlest one. (Sorry, but he’s just TOO DANG CUTE!!)

P.S. I’m not really sorry. :)

It was great to be able to stay in Del Mar for the night so we could really soak up our time at the beach. The hotel didn’t have a bathtub for the babe but we made due with the big kitchen sink!

We were so blessed to be able to spend a couple of days at the beach. The temps reached 118 here in the desert so it was a MUCH welcomed and refreshing change. It was fantastic just to be able to walk around and enjoy the coast, any time of day. Not a luxury we get here in the middle of August!

Truth is, this was probably our last trip to the beach this summer. The Lord must have known we needed a little getaway because life is about to get a little more crazy around here!

Last week, we put in an unexpected offer on a new house and… WE GOT IT!!

That means we’re MOVING next month! Our move-in date happens to be Zach’s exact homecoming anniversary!  We’re thrilled to be owning again after almost 5 years of renting. The Lord has had us on quite a journey the last 5 years.  

By now, you’d think we’d have this moving thing down, right? Still, September is always a very busy month for us so we’re feeling a wee bit overwhelmed, too.

Just another opportunity to trust the Lord and cling to Him through all the challenges and changes of life. 

Ready or not… HERE WE GO!!!
