Sunset Beach

     Life guard Justin

Ipod baby

Father and Son

We went to the beach for a couple of days to get away and relax.You can only really relax so much with a little one...We stayed in a hotel right on the beach which was great because I could take Brandon for his naptime with out having everyone lose their beach time. We went for a lot of walks,rode our bikes and went to eat. We headed over to Newport to go to Fashion Island and ate at the Cheesecake Factory my favorite!!! It overlooks the ocean and I love the athmosphere makes me feel rich....back to reality my husband says but a girl can dream....

Bikes on the Beach


Here we are ready to ride our bikes at the beach. We rode our bikes and Justin rode his new scooter. not really fair that we had all the hard work and he just rode around without even getting tired. the joys of being a kid these days..The beach has so many pedestrians you have to be careful not to run anyone over at least on purpose that is...

Friend Feature Melissa Stock

I have known Melissa since high school. She is amazing and I wanted to share this with all of you.
Melissa is a dynamo. As an artist, a teacher, a wife, and a mother to two beautiful mini Schnauzers, she knows the true meaning of living life to the fullest.

Since 2003, Melissa has been living in Eugene, Oregon as a Professor and Choir Director at Northwest Christian University (NCU). She arranges music and orchestrates for a variety of vocal groups in Oregon and California and founded NCU's first Community Choir. During the Christmas season, Melissa sweeps through the town in period piece costume, leading Eugene's gleeful Dickens Caroling group.

In her spare time, Melissa is an outspoken advocate for human trafficking, in her fifth year of active Junior League participation, and directs a yearly inspirational concert for American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, averaging 120 volunteer singers. If that wasn't all, she also bakes a variety of confectioneries, owning the Eugene and Orange County-based Sassy Cupcake.
