We couldn't stay away from the beach for long. It was calling us and so were our dear friends the Schneiders. Love our days at the beach with them and Hannah even fell in love with their dog, Moses this time!
Our first month in 29 Palms was crazy fun! Settling in to our home and meeting so many wonderful people made us feel comfortable right away. Chris is enjoying every minute of his Command time. He is surrounded by some amazing Marines and their families have been so gracious and welcoming. Check out the cookies that sweet Rae Kerrigan gave us to welcome us to 29.
We have made ourselves a little desert oasis in the back yard and are enjoying every minute even though it is over 100 degrees everyday. The heat here is no joke!
We found the base library and everyone is thrilled. Such a quiet house on library days.
Went to dinner at a little diamond in the rough with some fantastic neighbors and new friends. The people here in the desert make this place home. Just love them.
Holly had been planning this birthday surprise for about 7 months. When she found out that Matilda was opening their tour in LA, we knew we had to make it happen!!
We drove out to Santa Monica to stay with Aunt Holly for the weekend. All 3 kiddos thought that this was Hayley's 10th birthday get away. Little did they know it was a birthday present for all of them. We spent our first day down at the beach and playing on the Santa Monica pier. The next morning at breakfast, Holly gave them their gifts. Tickets to see Matilda that night and a limo ride into LA!!!
They were over the moon! We all had a wonderful time and can't wait until the next Aunt Holly adventure.
I am a wife to one of The Few and the Proud, he loves his country and happens to be the most amazing man who loves me unconditionally and is truly my hero; a homeschooling mama to 3 wonderful children that make me smile everyday, and a Christian trying to live my life for the Lord. Though I fall and stumble in my walk with Christ, I live in His undying grace and mercy. He has blessed our family beyond my wildest dreams and I cannot praise His name enough.
After reading many of my friends' blogs, I thought this would be a great way to keep friends and family up on what our gang is doing! Let me know if you stop by and see us.
