climbing to the waterfall, there was an amazing view of an old car from the 40's/50's wedged into a tree from a massive flood that occurred in the 50's!

  1. Hey guys, the house looks pretty sweet to me. (except for that baby blue and lavender paint. yuck!) Hope you are having fun! talk to you later,

    Justin

  2. Your new place looks wonderful. I’m so happy that you started a blog.

    Did you get the new My Morning Jacket album yet? I’ve been listening to it and I really love it except for “Highly Suspicious.” Something about that song makes me want to punch Peter Gabriel in the face. I don’t know why it does, but it does. I thought you should know.

  3. Maybe someday we will venture out into the wild of Nor Cal, but after our camping in Tahoe adventure, and our Mammoth wedding extravaganza, I doubt it will be any time soon. Looks like fun, cant wiat till you come to your REAL home SAN DIEGO, thats spanish for a whales vagina ya know.
