After our fun filled beach day, we headed over to my Uncle Tom and Aunt Eniko's house for a BBQ. It was great to see everyone again since we don't see each other that much. We had some great Mexican food and just really enjoyed ourselves! Thanks again Voss Family!

On Sunday we ventured to our favorite beach..Torrey Pines..Boy could we have not asked for a better day! It was nice and sunny and the water was freezing! What was once a low key beach was packed with people! But we had fun for a couple hours and even discussed renting a condo next summer for a week!

Mike and I after Mike and Kathy's Party headed downtown with our good friends Katie and James. They live down there and their place is so cool. They are walking distance to everything..Petco Park, Gaslamp, and all the cool restaurants and bars. We went to a really cool bar and had some drinks and food and played a great game of Jenga. Thanks guys for a great time and hope to see you soon!

The main reason we all went to San Diego was to surprise Mike and Kathy at their 60th birthday shindig. Boy were they surprised! Karen did such a great job keeping the family that came in from Michigan and our family a surprise. Good job on mom's part for telling Kathy she was going to England with my dad..it really threw her off. Anyways they were more then happy to see us...tears included. We wouldn't have missed it for the world! It was a plus to finally meet Jake, Matt's son before they left for deployment in Japan. It was great to see all our good friends since it had been awhile. Happy Birthday Mike and Kathy!

A couple weekends ago, me and Mike traveled to Poway to celebrate the birthdays of our good family friends Mike and Kathy(more on that one later). Our trip was a surprise to many people, only a selected few knew we were going to be in town. Saturday morning me and Mike went to breakfast with my best friend Ali. It was so good to see him! I saw him when I was in town in December but we always have a fun time. Even though it was for an hour or so, we always talk about the old times(we go back all the way to 6th grade) and the current events of music, movies, tv and our families. After breakfast, Mike, my dad and I went down to the Point Loma area and stopped by the Kobey swap meet..that was an adventure on its own! We also made our way to two breweries, Stone and Lightening. Stone is in Escondido and the building was beautiful and the beer wasn't bad either. Lightening brewery is in Poway and has been opened for a couple years. The beer was pretty good and my favorite of the day.

Joe and Gina threw an awesome party at their house in Maricopa for the fourth of July. There was tons of yummy food and drinks, a DJ that spun great tunes and fireworks practically in the backyard. Mike had some firecrackers and sparklers and brought those. We had such a fun time and it was great hanging out with the family!

Two weekends ago, we met up with your friends Jay and Falynn for a little Light Rail Pub Crawl. We started at Sun Up Brewery and made our way back to Tempe. Sun Up had great beer. Pretty impressed...they had an awesome Vanilla Porter! After that we hit up Sidebar in Phoenix. It was such a cool little lounge an they made some awesome specialty drinks. I got a White Russian drink made with Godiva White Chocolate and Mike got a drink that tasted like a root beer float. (Yummy). It was way past dinner time and we still hadn't eaten...mission find food at 10:00 at night! We made our way to Downtown Phoenix and boy was it dead down there(a total 180 from 2 months ago for our pub crawl with the gang) We made our way to the Historic District and stumbled upon The Rose and Crown bar. The only place serving food and throwing an 80's prom party. Boy did we feel under dressed ( I was still wearing my work clothes!) but it was cool to see everyone dressed up and get into the night with 80's music. It was a great little bar and can't wait to go back. We are already planning another pub crawl( a little more structured this time!)
