Anniversary Trip

1 year has come and gone and so much has happened. I often look back at my older posts and it always puts a smile on my face to see just how much we have grown together, as couple and as a family.
This post is about us as a couple
The beginning of June was our 1st anniversary and it just so happened that we had 2 days off of work and without kids. This means....
So we hopped in the car, and what better way to travel than in eco-friendly Honda hybrid, and headed for Santa Clara.
We were off to GREAT AMERICA
We had a fun morning at the park riding the rides, hanging out,
just the 2 of us,
and 700 Jr. High kids,
all waiting in line together...
No really, it was fun. We can have fun anywhere.
The best part was THISTHE DROP TOWER
I was excited, Taylor was apprehensive to say the least. But he did it. On the way up he was WAY nervous, and after it was over he agreed that it was super fun and not bad at all.

After we had had our fill of unchaperoned adolescents we decided to jump in the car and head over to Santa Cruz for lunch and a walk on the beach.

We stopped at this delicious little Mexican restaurant right on the water
Taylor had his signature drink...

and I had a very tasty Margarita. or two?
Lunch was great but the company was better.

After lunch we walked down the beach and tried to soak up as much of the ocean sights and smells as we could. I absolutely LOVE the ocean and I'm glad Taylor does too.
We walked to this little overlook and stopped to watch all of the surfers trying to catch the waves as they rolled in.

I really enjoyed watching this adorable little boy out there surfing with the big guys, watching and doing his own thing. Picking his waves. Paddling in and out. Sitting on his board. Waiting patiently. It was so cute. I could have watched him all day.

And as quick as it came
it was over
time to go home.

Well Taylor,

Here's to another great year

and to being independently WEALTHY!! $$

I love you
