A few weeks ago we met up with a group of young families in Brittany's ward in Carlsbad for a night of beach volleyball. I opted to watch Camryn and Ryan worked it in the volleyball game. Man, we wish we lived closer.
We always struggle to get a good picture together; I think we about achived it this time. (Minus my double chin). These pictures remind me of the beaches in Northern California because you almost always are fully clothed. I have a little love in my heart for that!
Then last weekend we celebrated my birthday! I am officially in my late 20's! Wha-wha! Ryan tried to surprise me with getting all of our friends together for dinner and eventually he had to end up telling me. So I told him to surprise me with the place, well I figured that part out too! I am too big of a planner/pusher; therefore, I never get surprised eventhough I want to be. So here we (Britt and Derek and Mia and Nate) are at Rockin' Baja in Old Town San Diego. Great little place if you haven't been there!
Afterward, Katie, who looks great for being due next month, and Tim were able to met at Ryan's parents for cake (A Nothing Bundt Cake!) and presents. It felt like a total birthday party, (minus candles in the cake) I haven't had that in a long time! It was so nice having everyone there to make me feel special.
We spent Saturday with Tim and Katie since they were down from LA. We had so much fun kayaking, surfing, laying out and going out to dinner with those two! Too bad we didn't get a picture together. I tried but Ryan said "We don't look very good tonight!" (referring to us not Katie and Tim). Geez Ryan, why don't you be a little more honest!
We also got to stay another night and go to church the next day with the Smart's and have a great birthday dinner! I was so spoiled and got to spread my birhtday over 4 days! That's how I like to do it. Thanks everyone for all their cards, calls, messages and thoughts!
