Yes, I do have a son. If you were to peruse this blog, you may not have noticed, as a good number of my posts are daughter-centric. That is mainly because he avoids picture opportunities. He is always with us and is a huge part of our family. I see him as the heart of it. He loves his sister's and expects the best from everyone.

Our second time with Missy was an epic fail in regards to her interacting with the Characters. She was slightly panicked every time we approached Mickey, Minnie or any other one of her favorite people. I like to think she is star struck and maybe she needs time to warm up to them. Regardless, we had a good time and it was fun to be out with the family on MLK day.

Yesterday we lost one of our precious family pets. Out tortoise "Squirt" passed away on 1/1/14 at the tender age of 9 years old. I don't know how this happened but I know that I'm feeling a tremendous amount of sadness and guilt. She may have been stricken with cancer or a parasite of some kind, but whatever it was, it took her very fast. I was going to take her to the vet the very next day, but I was too late...

Initially, I was planning on throwing a extravagant party for my birthday, but being the low-key dude that I am, I opted for a more intimate, enjoyable experience. We rented a 12 passenger van and headed to San Diego for a craft beer tour. I REALLY love the San Diego craft beer scene, and I wanted my closest friends and family to share in my excitement over some really tasty beer. We visited Green Flash Brewery, and then headed to Ballast Point, before closing out with dinner and drinks at Stone World Bistro and Gardens. The Picture below summarizes the day trip and I was satisfied with how the whole thing turned out.

Tay: iPhone 5S, heating blanket, curling iron, clothes, gift cards and a laser printer
Ethan: New mattress, desk, gaming monitor, clothes and gift cards
Missy: Toys, clothes and more toys :)
We attempted a family portrait but Missy was not in the mood. We will see how they turned out very soon. Hopefully there is one that we can use, but more than likely, we are going to try again.

In high school, she was a scholar athlete and rediscovered her knack for giving back. All of the volunteering and involvement in organizations has prepared her for future leadership roles and given her a sense of who she really is and what she really loves to do.
WE LOVE YOU!!

Yay!! So proud of Taylah and all of the college acceptance letters she has been receiving. After touring a few of the campuses, she has committed to San Diego State University. Go Aztecs!
