there. now that I got that out of the way, let's get down to business, shall we?
back in October we spent four fun-filled days in San Diego, and well, it just so happened that my birthday fell during that time. lucky me, hey? I mean, how often do you get to spend your birthday relaxing at the beach? because if you're busy raising a (rather large) family like me, where most days are spent merely trying to survive, it's pretty rare that I ever get to do anything on my birthday. besides go out for dinner, maybe. to me, it more or less feels like just another day. only a little worse. like if you have to make your own cake, of all things.
because we didn't have the means to bake a cake at the KOA, and because store bought cakes are typically less than edible (at least from my experience anyway), Gary went out and picked up some donuts from a local donut shop, instead, to celebrate my birthday. I specifically told him that I wanted 3 dozen, you know, because I was turning 36 and that would equal one donut per year of my life. sounds reasonable, right? except he returned a half hour later with not the three dozen like I had instructed, but one. yep. one lone dozen. "so, where are the other two dozen?" I inquired, slightly annoyed. did he not think I was worth that much, or what? I mean, for crying out loud, it wasn't like I was asking for diamonds!
I'm saving that for next year.
"I decided that a dozen donuts is plenty." he said. "besides, I'm the one who has to bunk with you. and if I remember from last time, don't donuts give you horrendous GAS?"
embarrassed that the other guests milling about the cabin courtyard had possibly overheard him, I immediately put a finger to my lips. "shhh, not so loud! I mean, no need to announce that tidbit of information to the entire world," I said, rather disgustedly.
yeesh, men. sometimes they have no tact.
um, yeah. so. where were we?
oh yes, that's right. something about a trip to San Diego. heh.
anyway. when we weren't beaching it, we spent our time farting, I mean, relaxing at the KOA where the kids alternated between renting bikes and swimming in the pool. fun times!
anyway, I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them! about half were taken with my dslr and the other half with my iphone.
