Spring break with Riley

For 7 days Riley was sort of like our child. It was so much fun hanging with him! But what I think was even more fun was FEEDING him! We grilled hamburgers, baked cookies – made pancakes, french toast, ravioli, fish tacos – drank a lot of root beer and hot chocolate – hit up a couple pizza parlors – and snacked on donuts on St. Patty’s day.

Weather wise, I’m thankful we got some sun and sand in on his first three days. But as you know, it rained every day thereafter – up until his last day in which we spent on a windy beach where we flew mini kites.

Here are some of the highlights at the beach:






When nights were rainy the boys played poker, XBOX and watched manly movies. I even got in on some zombie action on the XBOX!

Rob and his model poses…jeez

On St. Patrick’s Day, we ate at the River Cafe and went to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk for bowling and games.






Love you Riley! It was sad to see you go. Thanks for all the great memories and laughs!
