This past Sunday, my sister Cathy and BIL Bruce came to spend the day with us. After a yummy lunch of chili lime chicken wraps, we headed out on our pedal bikes. The day was brisk so we were sure to bundle up!

We biked/walked to the jetty again too. Boy oh boy was that a workout. The sand was not quite as hard as it was the first time Dan and I rode on it. Of course, Cathy and I had to stop and search for seashells along the way too.

As I type this, Dan and I are sitting by the campfire that we are going to share tonight with Gin and Syl. They are headed back to NC tomorrow and it is a bit bittersweet. We have so enjoyed their company at Huntington Beach State Park and have shared many a meal, laughs, kayaking outings, bike rides, and many hours of good conversation! We bid them safe travels and know that we will see them "down the road".
Tomorrow, our good friends Laura and Bruce arrive and we will celebrate Christmas with them. We are looking forward to spending time with them both and showing them around Huntington Beach. We will leave here next week and celebrate Christmas with my family (kids, parents, sisters, brother, DIL, SIL, BILs, nieces and nephews). It will be a fun time with many laughs! As a bonus, I get to see my best friend, Linda, over New Year's. Get ready to whoop it up, girl. We just may have to call
Before I end this post, I wanted to give a shout-out to my daughter Ashleigh. She is a freshman at UNC-W and just got her final grades this week for her first semester of college. I am very proud of her accomplishments and am pleased to boast her 3.3 GPA she earned! Way to go, Ash and keep up the good work!
