We're HERE!

Let me start by covering the most important aspects of our San Diego trip thus far:
We've eaten chicken shishkebabs at Armenian Cafe, had a yummy picnic at the beach, gotten a Peanut Butter/Hot Fudge/Banana Shake and onion rings from Ruby's, and celebrated my mom's engagement with $1 Rubio's Fish Taco's. Picking up on a theme? I'll give you a subtle hint: It's food. Many of my favorite San Diego activities revolve around food. And we have many more favorite food places left to visit. But believe it or not, when we're not eating, we're still having fun. Here's some proof:

Finally, we get to see the sun setting where it should...over the ocean.

Cousins: Max, Dania, Ashlin, Gabe, Kirra, Makaila, Sam
My sister Laura specializes in girls, I specialize in boys.
Max and Dani are two months apart and a LOT alike.
Sam likes to get dirty
Friends Sam and Maggie are exactly 1 year and 1 day apart.


Ani and Max met and fell in love in San Francisco.
Our great dental school friends the Akins hung out at the beach with us on Monday. The boys love our hotel. It has a pool and free breakfast. Both older boys are getting gnarly tans. (Notice I didn't say "wicked"? That's 'cause we're on the west coast.) Did I mention I'm happy to be here?

now that i've joined the blogging worls, i'm loving reading your posts (and a few of Doug's) and catching up with your family again after 3 years. We're in Cali now, but haven't seen the Akins. I loved the pic of the kids at the beach. So sweet.

I haven't had time to check your blog in awhile! I love the new picture of you and the boys. You guys are too cute! You with 3 boys and us with 3 girls make the perfect match. Your trip looked so fun and I wish I could have been there. We miss you guys. Max was so cute (as always) on the first day of school and congrats to your mom on her engagement! Wow, lots of stuff going on! I love the joyous picture of you in the waves.....you'll get to San Diego soon enough permanently! (and we'll come visit!)
