On our last day with my family we had quite a busy day. My college roommate and her family live in San Diego so we invited them to join us for lunch on Sunday. We met Brandi, Jeremy, Cole and Avery at the Karl Strauss Brewery in Carlsbad – it was previously stated that Scott can find a brewery anywhere and he kept his word.
Brandi and I met at a summer orientation right before we started at Chico State. We requested each other as roommates and lived together for 4 years – she is one of my dearest friends!
Flashback to 1994 – posing with the Chico State sign and out dear friend Erin – that’s me in the middle
Brandi was also one of my bridesmaids in our wedding
Hugs from Cole and Avery
I just had to share this picture of Caty and Cole when they were 1. Caty and I flew down to San Diego for Cole’s 1st birthday and then they flew up for Caty’s.
The view from the condo balcony – that’s about all the condo had to desire.
My parents have their Maui condo listed on a site called VRBO and some owners will do a swap of condo’s. My mom found someone in Oceanside who was willing. This condo was a mess – dirt everywhere, blinds with half an inch thick dust, chairs who’s legs were falling off…… the list goes on and on.
Anyways, back to the reason for this post
Here’s the gift that we made for my mom – she loved it!!
Todd, Erin and Riley came up later in the day and we took a walk around the condo grounds, which were really nice, and then headed to the beach.

Family picture time
The last time we got a family picture was when we were at the cabin for Thanksgiving of 2009
Caty wanted to write her name in the sand “just like in Maui”
Hanna wanted to try too!
