First Full Day in California

So, yesterday was our first full day in California. And, since my did lives so close to the beach, Shannon and I went down to the beach.

That is the wharf. It's right near the boardwalk, and Shannon is hopefully going to be working at one of the diners there.

That is near the lighthouse on Seabright Beach. My friend Makaila and I last summer were joking around one day and took a bunch of pictures right there. We had lots and lots of fun lol

Shannon and I also hung out with our friend Kellie and her friend Colby and their boyfriends Alex and Sean. We didn't get any pictures with them, but on our way back home, we took tons of pictures. :D

Yea, that's the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Well, you can see it in the distance haha I thought this was a cool scene, so I just had to get a picture of it. :)

Me!!! Hahah I had been walking down the beach for a while. I got a sunburn to prove it too. haha Shannon didn't want to walk on the beach with me, or at least not along the water. So, she sat down at one point while I walked the rest of the way by myself.

Today we sat here at home all day. So, no fun pictures from today. And I dunno about tomorrow either. Tomorrow will be the last day for about a week that I will post anything. We are going camping this weekend in Oregon and then going to visit my grandparents in Washington State up in Orcas Island at their new home they built. I promise I will take pictures from camping and pictures of the new house. So, stay tuned for pictures from the camping trip and Washington State!! :)

Happy Father's Day, Daddy!!

For the first time in years I got to spend father's day with my dad. Because he lives 3000 miles away from me, it's not easy to spend this day with him each year. My dad has always been there for me when I needed him. No matter what it was about or when the last time was that we talked. He knows my family better than anybody else does, and he knows why I am the way I am. For 16 years he has always been here for me when I needed somebody to talk to. And I know that until one of us dies, it will always be like that.
My dad is the best dad ever. I am never always the best daughter to him. I argue with him and say nasty things to him sometimes. Yet he never fails to love me. And believe me, I don't deserve it half the time. Ok, most of the time. But, he loves me. He is an amazing dad.
Happy Father's Day, Daddy! I love you so much!!

Wildwood or Bust!

Today the robotics team is going to Wildwood. Or, most of the students are anyway. YES, it's pouring down rain here in my town. YES, it's probably raining down at the shore as well. But do we care? NOPE!!! Mrs. Danner has made up plans specifically if it rains and we can't go down to the beach. Tho, some of us will go down to the beach anyway.... ;) I'm sorry, being on a beach when it's raining is fun lol I love having family who owns houses on beaches or lives down the street from one. It always works to my advantage lol
But, like I was saying...haha
Today is my last day in Jersey. And I get to spend it down in Wildwood. With my boyfriend of 8 months and my friends who I've grown close to over the past year or two. Ok, only some of them have I grown close to....lol But, it'll be tons of fun. Especially since like I said, my last day in Jersey is being spent with my boyfriend <3 and it's his last day before he goes to Boys State tomorrow. Of course, I have the longer trip (California to visit my dad), but.....LOL
I'll take as many pictures as I can....If I remember to haha I'm gonna try to bribe Collin into going into the photo booth thingy with me....I dunno if I'll be successful or not....Denise or Tonya, ya wanna help me on this one? Hahah
I hope everybody has a fun day! I'll post something Sunday night when I get to my dad's house.

Friday Fill In's

1. All children alarm their parents, if only because you are forever expecting more out of them than you should.

2. Show me a good loser and I will show you a changed person.

3. Collin's kisses is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs at one time. (haha you knew that one was coming soon lol)

4. Too bad that all the people who know how to run the country are busy sitting on their butts and watching the rest of us mess up this country.

5. I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine housework and office work.

6. It is impossible to think of any good meal, no matter how plain or elegant, without salt or pepper in it. (I do loving having a chef as a sister LOL)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to doing nothing like always (NOT looking forward to that!), tomorrow my plans include Wildwood with the robotics team all day long and Sunday, I want to see my dad on Father's Day! (Which I will get to do!!!! YAY!!!)

Finding out things I never thought of, family in town for a party, and just a bunch of other crazy crap. I promise, after this post, I will try so hard to not go 2 weeks without posting again. Pinky promise!
