I'm beginning to wonder if teaching Kaylie to throw away her diaper was a good idea.... we have to constantly check the trash can, because it often looks like this!

Pebble Beach & Santa Cruz
but here is what we have!
This backpack was AMAZING on both vacations....
he zip-lined through the redwoods....
wish I could have gone!!!
Devin and his "dream car"
What would a trip be without a visit (or 12)

The beach outside our front porch....and the beautiful sunset
The mode of transportation between islands is a ferry...
before the departure and get in line.
To entertain Kaylie for that hour, she got to drive Uncle Dale's car...
Kaylie spent a good amount of time out front on the porch
moving patio furniture around...
she LOVED pushing this table all around..
it was pretty amazing how this entertained her for so long!
We even did some spur-of-the-moment off roading while we were there!!
We hiked to a fort with a beautiful view....
Devin, Bubba, Mark, and Dale went crabbing while we were there.
They had a great time catching our (their) dinner!
I have to admit it was pretty fun to watch!!
Above is the guys setting the traps,
the crab bait,
their first catch
(Kaylie, who ALWAYS wanted to be involved) :)
and a trap ready to go!
Below is the guys in their canoes dropping their traps,
and their catch.
I think all in all they caught about 32 adult-male crabs
(but sent some back because even they couldn't eat that much!)
Me and Kaylie at a Vinyard on the island..
since we couldn't taste the wine with the others,
we hung out together!

We went to an Angels game as part of the celebration...
Devin surprised me with a Big Screen message.
I just wish I knew a little in advance so I could have gotten a non blurry picture!
Thanks Devin, I love you and have loved each of the last 5 years...
looking forward to many more ahead of us!
