D-Backs Game

The IB program at Westwood sells tickets to a Diamond Backs game as an annual fundraiser, and we couldn’t pass up the chance to eat a Diamond Dog and watch them beat the Giants in record time. Our friends, Mike & Kim Favreau, joined us for our fun night out. Danny even got the spotlight for a few seconds doing a crazy dance on the jumbo-tron.

Bath with Max

Our dog Max thinks life is great – until he gets a bath. He’s figured out that taking off his collar is the first step and now runs for cover when you slip it off his head.

San Diego Trip

Lynzie and I enjoyed one last summer vacation at the end of July. We spent four days in San Diego enjoying some relaxation time on the beach. Lynzie found us a great deal on a beach rental on Craig's List and we stayed only a block away from the ocean. For the first two days we sat on the beach all day, reading, boogie boarding, and enjoying the waves. We found a great breakfast place in Cardiff by the Sea that we kept going back to called Pipe's Cafe. We also hit our other favorite food places in San Diego, including Extraordinary Desserts, Felipe's Pizza Grotto, Red Mango, and Puerto La Boca (my favorite Argentine restaurant that we've now eaten at for my birthday two years in a row). We enjoyed a trip to the San Diego Temple and a visit with Lynzie's grandparents and cousins in their new house in Oceanside. The backyard of their new house looks down the hill into the backyard of one of the houses where Lynzie grew up. It was wonderful to have some time away before going back to school the first week of August.
