Sam and I have had quite a busy couple weeks, completely full of blessings. We came home from James & Monica's wedding on a Sunday and that Monday we met up with Sam's side of the family for a vacation in Bodega Bay where my wonderful parents-in-law rented a house. More than half of us celebrate birthdays in the months of June & July, so we all exchanged gifts and had what felt like Christmas in July. So technically my birthday celebrating started very early. :) On a similar note, my dearest Marci texted me on the morning of July 1st to wish me a happy birthday month, which of course made my day (not only because it's my birthday month but because she knows me so well that she knew I'd love that).
We laughed a lot, ate a lot of salt-water taffy (or should I say "tAHffy"), and enjoyed both the rain and the sun. Here are some favorite pictures from the week:
Kari & Wyatt on the balcony.
And a close-up.

It was really wonderful to be together! We came back Friday afternoon, spent a couple hours at home, and then drove to Porterville for some time with my family. I'll post more on that later. For now, back to packing. Yay.
