I've been working at cleaning out cupboards, closets, boxes, and the like, and I ran across some pictures I haven't seen in a while. I guess that is one of the joys of cleaning: you find thngs you didn't even know you had!

In 1999 our family took a trip to Monterey Bay over one of the three-day weekends. Sam had just gotten his first surfboard (which he still has), and was pushing as only Sam could push to try it out in some real surf, so part of our trip had to be to go to the beach, even though it was freezing cold. We also rented kayaks and paddled around the Bay, seeing all kinds of fun animals.
Rachael was 18 and graduating in a few months, Sam was 14 and in 8th grade, and Andrew was about to turn 11 and in 5th grade. Good times. It is hard to believe it has been ten years.


  1. That was a very memorable vacation. I love Monterey.

  2. That was one of my favorite trips, especially the kayaking part.
