So Kathleen and I went on a picnic in a place we have never been. We went to this park by my grandparents house and ate. It was next to these stables and it was a beautiful day. Since I am lame and always forget my camera we bought a small crappy digital camera for 10 bucks at CVS. While the pictures are pretty crappy they still show that we did something.

We also went goodwill shopping but once again I forgot the camera so we are going to go again so that we can have pictures.

More coming soon...

My Summer with Kathleen!

I am spending most of the summer house sitting at my grandparents house. The Beautiful Kathleen is spending most of the time with me.

In an effort not to look back on this summer and think "what did I do this summer?" We have decided to make a list of all the things that we plan on doing. So I will be blogging our efforts along the way.

Here is our list so far....

Fly a Kite
Go to the Rodeo
Go to the Santa Ana Zoo
Walk around canyon park
Get tan
Get temporary tattoos
Read a full book
Ride a horse
Get Kathleen cowboy boots
Ride the Balloon
Sleep outside
Find a spot of our own (that Chad hasn’t been to)
Make necklaces
Make bracelets
Wash Cars
Eat at Pedros

Cook a meal from a cookbook
Go to the OC fair
Swim in the Lake
Have a water fight
Slip and slide
Go to the farmers market

Have a picnic in place we’ve never been
Sleep in a tent

Carp for the day

Yesterday was amazing!!

I have been so stressed with school and other thing lately that all I wanted was a day off!! It's crazy being a worship leader for a small church. I don't remember the last time that I took a Sunday off and was able to just go to church to be fed. I rarely get the opportunity to go to church at all to just be at church and not lead worship. SO I got my amazing friend Lindsay to cover for worship and Jake and I decided to take the day off and go to reality. Our first thought was to go to Reality LA, but then we thought let's just go big and go to Reality Carpinteria. So we did!

We were excited to see our Al and Nina, and Sarah Yardley!! And to be able to go to Reality! Jake had never been to a reality before and I had never been to Reality Carp for a regular service! We made the drive up there for the 12 service and surprised our amazing friends! It was so exciting to see them and get to spend the day with them! Sadly I am horrible and did not bring a camera (I really need to work on that) but Sarah took a picture so I'll have to get that up!

All in all it was an amazing day! Thank the Lord for Lindsay and giving us a much needed day off!
