Not only has it been at least a month since I've updated the blog (PS-how FABULOUS is my husband?! Love, love, love him.), it has been 2 WHOLE YEARS since we moved to Ridgecrest! Time is flying! We actually ended up celebrating our big anniversary by leaving :) It was a fabulous mini-vacation, just what we needed to remind ourselves that living in Ridgecrest is not that bad. The more we leave, the better it is! It was a shock that Nate wanted to take time off work to go out of town, because he has been working every weekend since the middle of July (which helped give reason to why Evan and I left for about a month and went to visit the promised land of Utah/Idaho. Another reason why the blog has been neglected; posts on our time there are in the works, soon to come).
Anyway, out little fam headed South with some wonderful friends to:
Since we were making a trip out of it and celebrating not being in The Ridge, we spent the next day at the beach! One of our favorite family activities in the world. :)
These boys were so good all day, despite next to zero napping. They had the time of their lives building sand castles, finding sand crabs, and watching their daddy's boogie board to their hearts content.
