2nd Annual Summer of Devon!

What a fun week we just had! Our nephew, Devon, came from Phoenix to stay with us & it was so much fun having him here. The week was filled with golfing, surfing, hakki sack, bicycle rides, a visit to the bird sanctuary, teaching eachother new songs on the guitar, and just all around good times. Devon is not your typical 13 year old boy... he is so polite, helpful, TALENTED, smart, funny, I could go on and on - he's just great! Since I am still recovering from my knee surgery I wasn't able to surf or golf with them, so I played photographer all week. I think they got a little bit tired of me making them smile for the camera, but they were good sports. Here's a few pics and videos of the action:

We can't wait for you to come back next Summer, Dev... and Courtney, Morgan, and Nicole can come too!

That looks like so much fun! How close to the beach do you live?

We are pretty darn close... we would have an ocean view from our apartment if we chopped down all the massive trees! However, we are basically on the edge of a cliff, so in order to get to the beach, we have to walk about two blocks and then down a big set of stairs.
