Kevin and I have been talking about getting a dog since we were dating and wanted to have a little girl named Hannah. Last Wednesday night we headed over to the animal shelter in Downey. We got there at 6:45 and it closed at 7:00, and we found a cute little dog. The kids and I went to adopt her the next day, we got her! We picked her up later that day with Kevin. She was so sedated because she was spayed right before we got her.
We have really enjoyed getting to know our new family member. She is a sweet playful dog. She likes to sleep on Hannah's bed. I love hearing Gavin talk to her.We took her on our trip to San Diego. I have to admit it was a lot of work. I think she had a good time. We stayed on Steve and Kaitlin's boat. Hannah and Gavin were excited to see Captain Steve.We went on a Valentine's evening harbor cruise. We enjoyed the sunset, the seals, ohh... and the giant dead whale...Our harbor cruise was cut short when the swells started getting bigger. We were prepared with life jackets for the kids...
and Karalla... she is too cute in her life jacket.
The boys went fishing before we went to dinner. Hannah and Gavin loved it.
Before our romantic dinner at Souplantation, we let the kids and the puppy get their wiggles out. They were running all over the place. They love their puppy.
Kevin surprised be with a boquet of PINK tulips (very important that they are pink) while I gorged on Souplantation's blueberry muffins with Kaitlin.
Sunday we went to Cabrillo National Monument. Cabrillo was hired by the Spanish in the 1500's to explore the coast of California.
The view was incredible from Point Loma.
Kevin loves his dog.
We always have so much fun with Steve and Kaitlin, they tollerate our kids so well too.
Hannah, Gavin, and Karalla liked the hike down to the tide pools.
The tidepools weren't that great. I guess we are spoiled with the Aquarium of the Pacific.
We met Michael (my brother) for dinner at the restaurant he works at. It was nice to get great service, a discount, free dessert, and someone to order our food for us. The messy sundae... was indeed messy. Hannah and Gavin loved it. I was grateful becuase Michael totally supervised Gavin and cleaned him up. He was a mess.We had a great weekend, but we are happy to be home in our own beds again.
