Viva La Mexico

Did someone say Mexico? After going to the ZOO and a Padres game we headed South of the Boarder. GC was a Mexico Virgin so we broke him in right with tequila shots and Lobster. Here's how the trip went:

We stopped at the Rosarito beach Hotel, walked down the pier, had a few fruity drinks and beers at the bar then continued to head south along the coast.Next was Puerto Nuevo. Who doesn't love the large hillside Jesus! White sandy BeachesOne, Two, Three, TequilaSipping tequila with the localsIn the Street stalls:

Padres vs. The Rockies

The Padres were in town and we couldn’t go to San Diego without going to a Padres game. Jenn and Nick even drove down from the OC to go to the game with us. Although the Padres lost the game 6-4 we had a great time.

A San Diego Homecoming

Every so many months I start to go a little stir crazy in the mountains, which will usually follow with the urge to take a little trip. Before heading for the good ole state of South Dakota Nick joined me for a weekend in San Diego. Those of you who have traveled the 5 freeway know the drive from Tahoe to San Diego is long, mundane, and has a view consisting mostly of various agriculture fields and cows.

Emily and GC were in town too, so we all met up for drinks Friday night in Encinitas. After a few drinks we grabbed a few more and wandered down to the beach. Kevin felt the ocean was calling out to us, which in turn meant we had to go for a midnight swim. Emily and GC sat on the beach as the three of us stripped down to our “panties” and jumped in. The night ended with Fillberto’s, a few more beers, and Kevin throwing his boxers around the streets Encinitas.

The time of my life

Horace Mann once said, “Time is a gift, given to you, given to give you the time you need, the time you need to have the time of your life.” Over the last year I have chosen to live my life one day at a time. Moving to Tahoe was the best choice I could have made for myself at that time of my life. At this moment I am “having the time of my life,” making the most of every moment. These memories will forever stay with me. We live to work and we work to live. But we must remember to let go and enjoy the life that has been given to us and make the most of the time that we have. At the end of the day we are who we make ourselves. Be free.
