Here comes the sun... maybe??

I like living in Northern CA.  I also like living on the water.  Eating breakfast and looking out at the ocean is pretty neat.  There are some downsides to this little bay though.  One being the complete lack of summer.  I saw this article today.  One of the top-three hottest summers in the last 60+ years??  Not here!  The only time I've worn shorts, tank tops, or my swimsuit this summer was when I vacationed on the East Coast.  There seems to be an eternal cloud that sits over my house, no lie.  Here's a few shots of my bright and sunny morning drive:

This thing, called love... cries, in the cradle all night...

This is our baby!  Our little baby jumps around already, waves its arms, kicks its legs, and sucks its fingers. Baby makes me nausea and tired, and doesn't let me zip up my jean anymore.  He/she has turned me into the laziest housekeeper, and my husband into an amazing cook in just a few short weeks.  I can't wait to see all the other changes our little lovebug will bring about in the next 6 months, and long after that!

Two bare-feet on the dashboard...

So, we're still alive and well.  It's been a crazy last couple months with school, work, and.... vacation!! We actually got to take some time out of our busy schedules and have a week off.  My family was planning a vacation to Cape Cod (the happiest place ever) and we decided to fly out and surprise them.  Best idea ever!!  Being on the porch of the rental house when they arrived was amazing and spending the week with everyone was a blast.  We hadn't all been together (with Phil included) since we our wedding three and a half years ago.  Here's some pictures to give you a glimpse into our wonderful week:
The family!

Sunset on the beach...

 Boogie boarding. Lydia was completely fearless and spent more time in the water than anyone else!

 All the girls

 Bump with his pretty girls!

 My latest knitting project and super cute little brother

Gracie, so pretty!

 It finally got warm enough that even the girls dared to get in the water.  I really am riding a wave!

"Our" lighthouse, Nauset Light

 Some epic games on the beach!

 Ice-cream and donuts are a very important part of the Cape!
