Summer changes

So the kids and I will be spending the summer in Tin Cup, CO. An absolutely beautiful, breathtaking place to spend time. Since I will be out of state soon the blog will focus on our summer travels and adventures in Colorado. And if anyone wants to head that way this summer, let me know!

But first, this weekend will be a girls’ trip to Corpus Christi/Port Aransas/Mustang Island.

Here are a couple of pictures I took last year just to give you a little tease. Be ready to be transported to Colorado for the summer.

What?! No travel this weekend?!

So this weekend we were not able to travel. We had a super important event that took place; our daughter, Grace, graduated from high school.

Grace has attended The Christian School at Castle Hills for her high school years. She graduated with an honors diploma and summa cum laude. So we had to take a break from travel this weekend, but we will be back at it next weekend.

Also, a big shout out to Country Sweets Bakery in Bandera for making an amazing cake. It was a hit among our guests at the grad party. A while back I shared a post about this awesome bakery. They did not disappoint with the cake. BTW: we enjoyed some delicious pastries while we waited for the cake to be finished. I highly recommend the apple fritter!

Look for the new post next week!

Asilomar State Beach, CA

While not a local (or even Texas) beach, I decided to do mid-week posts on past travels and photos I took there. One of my favorite places I visited last year is Asilomar State Beach, bear Monterey, CA (

I took Grace and Matthew to visit Sofia in Monterey over Memorial Day weekend in 2018. Sofia is in the Air Force and we decided to visit her so we could spend time with her and check out what I had heard was a beautiful place. No lie, the entire area is really amazing.

But for the sake of this entry, I will be focusing on Asilomar State Beach. Sofia had gone to this beach before and sent me a couple of pictures that were really amazing. So while we were visiting her, she took us out just before sunset. This place exhibited one of the absolutely most stunning sunsets I have ever seen. The site of the sun going down over the ocean and the rocky beach, was peaceful, beautiful……..and I honestly cannot even describe it in words. I pretty much just snapped pictures nonstop. I really didn’t want to leave the beach, but the sight of my shivering children told me it was time to go.

If you ever get the chance to go to the Monterey/Pebble Beach/Carmel area, be sure to visit this gorgeous place, especially at sunset.
