• Thanksgiving 2019

    Even though we have lived in Sac for over a year now, it still feels weird to not travel so much the week of Thanksgiving. Last year Meghan was only a week old, and it was difficult to really go anywhere, but I’m happy I was able to make the trip to Lodi, especially because my brother and sister-in-law were in town. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to make the trip out this year, so we…

What an exciting adventure! 5:15 AM Allison and I climbed into the CRV, it was dark outside and we could see our breath in the cool morning. We made our way to the Airport as Allison gave me a last-minute rundown of their typical days.…

I’m not the biggest Halloween fan and I would rather spend the money on Christmas pajamas or a new sweater for Thanksgiving. We came up with the idea to do the Avengers, but we wanted…

    Both of Myke’s and my families went on beach trips when we were growing up. My family went to Pajaro Dunes, near Monterey and Myke went to Pismo Beach. I remember Myke telling me about these trips when we were dating and he always lit up when he would talk about this place. He moved around a little bit while growing up, but they always went back to Pismo and so that was the closest…
