Summer Lovin'

Wow! It has been a looooong time since I have given an update on our lives! The reason is, we don't have internet at our house for a short time and I broke the charger for my computer so I had no access to my photos or computer for that matter. Jer and I have taken some fun trip this summer with our families. It was so nice for Jer to have a break from his long work days. Our first stop was Newport Beach, CA with the Bartons!
 Here we are on the ferry going over to Balboa island to go crabbing and walk around the island.
 We all gathered on the rocks with fishing line and lunch meat tied to the end to catch the little crabs.

 Here they are!
 The whole group. We let them go when we were done of course. :o)
 Our main activity in Newport was of course, the beach! We enjoyed relaxing on the beach for several hours each day. One of Jer's favorite activities was playing hearts with Grandpa, Tag, and others who wanted to join.

 Playing rummy.
A beautiful shell mosaic made by Becca.

 We had fun doing lots of fun things with the Barton family, we had a marshmallow gun fight, went to dinner, took family pictures, watched a movie, went to lunch with Grandma and played games.

Next stop, Lake Tahoe with the Houstons!!

This trip was particularly exciting because Jer and I were meeting our sweet niece Ella for the very first time!

 My first meeting with Smella in her new hat I made! Its still a bit big but I know she'll grow into it soon! I love kissing those little cheekies!
 Family BBQ at the park.
 Chowing down on some good food thanks to Dad.
 S'mores over the grill thanks to the master s'mores maker, Jer.
 Hot summer nights car show just down the road from the Marriott Timber Lodge we were staying at. So fun to see all the old cars and listen to the live music.
 Just doin a little swing dancing.
 Boat outing, aunties with Ella.
 The whole group before we ventured out to water ski. Sorry my giant hat covered you mom!
 Our boat group minus dad.
 Jer all suited up ready to get in the water.
 Jer Skiing his heart out!
 Waiting for my turn. Very nervous to be honest, this was my first time!
 Anna, concentrated as ever and doing great! She's a first-timer too!
 Pretty sure this is me but sometimes Anna and I are identical so I'm not positive.
 After skiing, feelin good and sore!
 Dad rockin the one ski! I was very impressed by my dad's skills after all these years!
 Outlook at Emerald Bay.
 My night to cook dinner. Chicken and spinach stromboli, caesar salad, corn on the cobb, peanut butter bars!
 The group, minus Katie.
 Bathtime with little miss Ella.
 A little out of order, but our boat group after surviving water skiing.
 Ella with uncle Jer. She loves him.
 The beautiful scenery of South Lake Tahoe. The guy in it isn't too bad either. ;o)
 Auntie Tina with little bug-a-boo. I made the headband she is wearing.
 Only the best breakfast place ever. Red Hut Cafe in Lake Tahoe. Go there.
 Bike ride around town on cruisers. Ella even came!
 She's all helmet! I love how she snuggles up.
 Family photos. We were fighting against time and were losing our light quickly. I think we still came up with some good ones. This is just a little preview.
 One year of marriage and going strong! We have had such a fun summer, school snuck up on us too soon. :o(
