Friendsgiving 2014

Cabin Utah Park City patio

The week after DC was Friendsgiving in Park City. Now with more kids than ever - Lilly, Jack, Penny, Callen - we all honed our skills at baby beer pong. My jalapeno corn bread killed it.
Beach camping

Campground Cardiff California

The week after Park City was camping at the beach with Ryan and Serena. Good weather, warm water, Reese's s'mores. Win.

Jon came down. Usual stuff. Call of Duty, flag football, tennis, hookah.
