Sun and Relaxation

So, after weekened upon weekend of working on the house, I was finally able to convince Dana to get away for the day and enjoy the hot summer weather.  Being that we live east a few miles from the beach, the temperature is almost 10 degrees hotter than near the ocean.  This last week was filled with some pretty hot days, reaching the 90's.  So, what better to do than to cool off with the ocean breeze and catch some rays.  We spent the day in Pacific Beach for some much needed fun, together time.

We ran a couple erronds, treated ourselves to some acai bowls, then layed at the beach and people watched.  We ironically sat right next to another couple who were expecting, but it looked like the other girl was further along than I was.  We wanted to find a good way to strike up a pregnancy conversation, but never we just kept to ourselves and played the guessing game "How old do you think they are?  How far along do you think she is?, etc."  You know, all the things you wonder, but you maybe shouldn't ask.  :)

Anyway, since we were in our old stomping grounds, we wanted to take as much advantage of it as we could.  We ate at one of our favorite lunch spots, Cass Street Bar and Grill, where we both got their infamous stuffed baguettes.  We parted ways so that I could meet with my girlfriend, Jennafer of Jennafer Grace Clothing, and we could go shopping.  I've been on a lookout for comfy maxi dresses that my belly will allow me to grow in to this summer.  And, while we were on our shopping adventures, Dana met up with Jennafer's boyfriend, Jack, for a nice cold beer.  We rounded out the day with an ice cream treat at Mr. Frostie's, compliments and Jennafer and Jack.

It was a perfect day, and so much fun!!  After our fun-filled Saturday, though, apparently my body couldn't handle much more so I spent Sunday napping and watching TV, while Dana did...well, what do you think he did?  Yup, thats right, he spent the day outside in his garden, cutting away dead branches, adding more vegetables and trees and building his irrigation system (yes, that means that each and every single thing that he has planted has its own water supply set to the desired amount that it needs daily).  I'm telling you, this guy don't mess around.
