San Diego Fun with the Gartons!!!!

Last weekend Ryan and I went to San Diego to visit my Aunt Lani and her family. As usual it was so much fun, and we can't wait until the next visit! On Saturday we started the day by going to Swamis Beach in Encinitas. They have these awesome real, naturally occuring tide pools.

Ryan was very determined to catch a crab...

mission acomplished!

Later on in the evening we went Miniture golfing.

The group (minus Ryan who was taking the picture.)

Lani surfing in the barrel

my turn!

Andrew in the wave

Now it is time for the Freak show!!! ENJOY...

Also I love seeing all the hot air balloons every night in San Diego, one day we are going to go take a ride.

Seaport Village

For our Anniversary we went to Seaport Village in San Diego. It was a fun evening spent with Ryan. We walked around all the cute little shops, had dinner right by the water, and just enjoyed to beautiful scenery. It was a great evening.

The San Diego Bay Bridge

Lovely picture I know, we never found someone to take our picture for us.

Isn't this an awesome picture, It looks fake. But for our anniversary present to each other we bought ourselves a new Camera!!!! (yeah our last one was so crappy, so hopefully we won't have anymore dark crappy pictures!)

We found this shirt for baby Seth in a cute children's store, it is my FAVORITE thing that we have for him so far. Because his daddy is a huge surfer, and Ryan talks about being able to take him out surfing when he gets older all the time!

The Greatest 2 Years!!!

Yesterday August 8, was our 2nd Wedding anniversary!!! I am so grateful to be married to an amazing man. He is my best friend and I feel like the luckiest girl alive. He is a smart, selfless, giving, funny man. I miss him everyday that he leaves for school, and jump up giddy every evening when I hear him come in through the door. I can't believe how far we have come in the past two years (both of us graduating college, moving to California, Ryan starting Chiropractic school, and now we are patiently waiting for our little boy to arrive in December!) I wouldn't trade my life for anything and I am so excited for what the rest of our life together brings. Ryan I love you so much! Thank you for taking care of me (and putting up with my craziness!) in every way. I love you with all my heart!!!

I love this family tradition of ours! It was such a great time! I loved seeing so much of my family that I haven't seen in such a long time. I miss you guys all so much, and wish we could be together more often. Love you!!
