It had been some time now that Maite had mentioned to me that she
wanted me to get some photos of Cid. We spoke about this when he
was just a baby, but now he was already 6. Wow. Maite let me know
she was finally ready to get this done and I was up for it. We went and
spent a weekend at their new place. The breeze in their place is so
cooling. They live right next to the airport. We got used to the sound of
the planes pretty quickly and it was fun sitting on the bed watching the
planes land at night. Anyways, we got there on Saturday afternoon.
Since it was already around 3pm, I wanted to start getting some photos
while the sun was still nice and bright. The guys went to get some late lunch
at Lucha Libre tacos. It was really good!! We plant to go next time and
try some of their other food. So we got a few photos and had lunch right
after. Once we were done with lunch we decided to get out of the house
and go towards the beach. We tried going to the lighthouse but it was already
closed so we went to Ocean Beach instead. We made a stop by one of the
little shops to buy some new pipes. It was hard not to come out of there with
a few other things, but we just came for pipes, an whatever Maite and Mark
bought. We made our way towards the beach. Cid was waay ahead of us.
He knew exactly where he was going. I was able to get some fun photos
of him enjoying the beach and running around. Also got some photos of
the beautiful sunset we saw. It was just perfect. We chased after Cid, climbed
on rocks to get photos and got nice amounts of sand in our shoes. We were
pretty beat after all the walking. It was definitely a fun day. We came back,
tried to get all the sand off of us, and chilled out and snacked. We ended up in
bed pretty late this night. It was all good fun!

The next day we woke up and Maite and Mark made us breakfast. It was really
good and we were pretty full. We got ready and headed out to Point Loma to see
the Old Point Loma lighthouse. We got there and ended up on the opposite side
of where the lighthouse was. We took a walk down a few trails and made our way as
close as we could to the shore and the rocks. It was definitely peaceful and really
nice out. Once we were done we took a drive towards the lighthouse. We got a really
nice view of downtown San Diego and the beach. We saw the Cabrillo National
Monument and the outside of the lighthouse. The top was closed for some reason.
We definitely did a lot of walking today as well and had a really good time and saw
alot more of San Diego that we had not seen. Once we were done we went and got
some late lunch at Mama’s Bakery & Deli. They had good Lebanese food. I had the
veggie plate with falafel, humus, tabouleh salad, and pita bread. Mmm it was really
good. After lunch we went back to unwind for a few minutes and decided to make
our way home since it was already the afternoon. We had a long drive ahead but
a great weekend behind us and lots of fun photos.

♥ Psomas Paper Yacht Challenge 061809
At work they had already had this challenge the year before. It seemed like a pretty
cool concept; create a Paper Yacht that will make it through the fountain and to the
other side without it tilting over or drowning. Alex had came up with the idea that we
join it and create a little simple boat, since those are the ones that usually win. The day
finally came and our little boat unfortunately did not make it very far. It was fun being
a part of it and seeing the other people and their very awesome boats make it to the finish
line. Some people really got very creative with their boats. It was a fun after work activity.
And of course getting some photos of it is always great.

♥ Monkees 062009-071009
These are just various photos of the monkees lately. And I swear the last photo
of Loki where it’s all red is not photoshopped. I love that effect!! That is definitely
my favorite photo of Loki.

♥ 4th of July Fireworks in South Gate 070409
We always tend to go to Nathan’s parents house in South Gate for 4th of July.
They live right across the street from the park so we don’t even need to leave the
house to see them. We just took some chairs to the backyard and watched the
fireworks from there. We had a nice day of barbequing and hanging out. It was a
fun day with some awesome fireworks at night. I love the way they come out on
photos. It was a great show!
