california rest in peace



We headed out to California last weekend for a much needed vacation. We had just finished finals and set out to drive through the night. Got a flat tire. The usual for us. Luckily it happened in Vegas, which is probably the only place on earth that has a 24 hr. mechanic shop open. The boys used their Spanish, we got a new tire, and we were back on the road to the homeland. We got in at 7 a.m. slept a couple hours, and then of course the boys headed out to get their a.m. surf on. The boys ended up surfing probably 5 times in the 5 days we were there, I got to surf two days. It was great weather, surprisingly great surf, and great company.

DOHENY DAY 1:


This was such a fun day! It was the Mcaffee + Facer day. We bocce balled it up,  surfed a couple hours, then came in to a much needed bonfire. It was a perfect way to end a perfect day. Had some awesome grilled burgers, chicken, and gooey s'mores. If you were to ask me what my ideal day would be...this would be it.

EASTER

We split up the Easter fun between both families. Saturday night we had a really great dinner at the Facer house and then we dyed some eggs. I don't have any pictures of the eggs we dyed this year, but I will post pictures of the ones dave and I did last year. Last year Dave and I were in Hawaii! We had our own little easter egg hunt too...Anyways, We also spent some time doing a little WII dance with the Facers...here is just a peek into the awesomeness that was our dancing.

I guess the rest of the videos aren't loading right now...I'll add them later.

Easter Sunday we went to the Bost house (my grandparents) for a nice dinner and our classic tradition of a scavenger hunt to find a Trader Joe's One pound chocolate bar. Everyone picks a name and we all make clues for each other. It was also my brother Darren's 24th birthday. Happy birthday D.


DOHENY DAY 2 (last day)

Small doho, perfect little rollers, no one else out = deliciouso.
We surfed, we laughed, we cried, we LIVED. I think California can bring the best out of people. People chill more, they enjoy more, and they just LOVE LIFE. California always has a way of reminding me about the important things. No not just surfing or the beach, but family, good friends, spending time with those you love and enjoying all that you can. Good times were definitely had, can't wait to visit again.
