A group of us from work went to a Greg Laswell concert @ the Belly Up, mostly in support of our fellow, JonT. It was a fun time, and we felt special because we knew somebody from the band. Jennyd and Christine made us some cool custom shirts for the occasion!
Well, I just downloaded the last of our pictures from the past 2 SCUBA filled weekends, so I thought I’d share a few of them. On the 10th of June, we woke up at 4am after getting home late after Ashley’s wedding celebration, and drove down to Mission Bay to get on a boat headed to The Los Coronados Islands off the northern coast of Mexico. This was our first fun dive since our cruise in February and the first after purchasing all of our own equipment, so we were excited to go.
The water was really clear, much more so than our experience at La Jolla Shores, and a little warmer. We went on two dives. The first was at the “Keyhole” which was right behind us there in that picture. The second was at “Lobster Shack” which was named that for the place on the island that used to have a lobster shack on it. We saw lots of Garibaldi (the offical saltwater fish of California) and some other cool fish, and best, some seals!
Look at my wife. Isn’t she hot?
Last weekend, the 14th-17th of June, we took a trip to Catalina along with Chris, Shelley, Brian, Janet, and Moses to Catalina. We were going for fun, of course, but also to get our PADI Advanced Certifications.
We left Friday night from Dana Point, and arrived at Avalon (the village on Catalina Island) a couple hours before sunset. We all had dinner together and then went to our hotels to study up for the next day’s dives.
We dove twice on Saturday (100′ deep, and advanced underwater navigation), again on Saturday night for our night dive, and twice on Sunday (wreck, and underwater naturalist). Those 5 dives qualified us to be advanced divers. Unfortunately for Brian, Saturday morning he was congested and couldn’t dive. He tried later in the day but couldn’t clear his ears. The dive spot at Avalon is called Casino Point, and it’s an underwater park with 3 sunken ships, a plaque dedicated to Jacques Cousteau, and lots of animals and kelp. It was a really fun weekend!
Knowing how much fun I'm having with my helicopter, Chris ordered the exact same one. It should come tomorrow! I'm trying to convince jason to get one too… then it'll be like a whole club.
We went with the Scott family to Benihana to celebrate Valentines Day (since Erin was out of town on the real Valentines Day) and to celebrate my 4th anniversary with TN (and also just cuz we wanted to go). We hadn't seen our Godson since before the holidays so it was fun to hang out with them finally. Camden ordered the "fly lice" and chicken bits.
We took Marvin to see Firewall for his birthday. We went to Rubio's before the movie. Harrison Ford is gettin' pretty old for starring in an action movie, but it was still pretty good.
Today was the 2nd annual TierraNet BBQ. Good times were had by all. There was an epic wet nerf sponge water fight with many casualties.
My wife turned 25 today. We went to Karl Strauss Brewery in Sorrento Valley for dinner, with Joann, Marvin, Mrs. B, Brian, Jen, and Camden. Brian made me have pork chops, because I haven't had them in a while.
TN went on a company field trip today to see Meet the Fockers. It was quite entertaining! After the movie, Jen, Brian, Matt, and I went to the Chip for lunch. What a nice Christmas eve eve.
The ladies met for lunch and pedis on Friday. Jen's mom flew in from Montana to join us! Ok maybe not just for that, but she too relaxed during the 30 minute massage I now have deep red toes with white/yellow flowers and green gems with silver sparkles!
I have successfully completed my first graduate course! Not too sure how well I did, but its done
For lack of a transition, Jen's having a boy! And they purchased their nursery furniture so we are well on our way to decorating! Paint, here we come.
