Friday Photos [7.31.15]

Here are some photos from Andy & my week:

It's like I was literally transported to Belgium while at the Lost Abbey tap room Sunday!

On the Skyride at the San Diego Zoo on Monday!

Three year-old panda!! He was so playful.

While at the zoo on Monday I got some really good news! More on that later. 

Beautiful sand sculpture being created in front of us at the Coronado Beach Tuesday. It was a Dr. Suess theme.

Let's put our feet in the ocean :o)

Ryan Perket! My college buddy was on vacation in San Diego this week, too! We met for brunch on Wednesday.

On the Ballast Point brewery tour Wednesday afternoon. It was so cool and if you guys get near San Diego ever you should definitely go.

Andy hanging on the patio at our Venice, CA airbnb Thursday evening. Our hostess' dog Cody is our new buddy.

And, in case you forgot, we are in California and the skies and palm trees here are just stunning <3

We're on Vacation! Pt. 1: Zion, Joshua Tree, and rollin into San Diego

Andy and I are on vacation! Officially on a 17 day vacation out west to California that started on Friday! And we are SO excited! And have been having SO much fun! And I've taken SO many pictures! I'll share a few on here right now, and hope to provide a more in depth view on some of our days on vacation at a later date. But for now, enjoy :o)

Day 1: Zion National Park! We arrived less than an hour before dusk, which left time to set-up camp and play some games. Oh, and crack some beers (duh).


Literally taken at our campsite OMG these views!

Day 2: We explored Zion National Park! Then headed over to Joshua Tree to settle in to our vacation rental where we pretended like we were going to visit the park and star gaze, but actually ate way too much Mexican food, played games, and fell asleep watching "Hot Tub Time Machine".

Morning yoga <3

Omnomnom on the side of the road.

Omnomnom at the Mexican place a block from our rental.

In our rental! I'll share more pictures later but this place was so colorful and cozy. I love it.

Day 3: We actually went to Joshua Tree! Drove to Escondido to drink a bunch of beer at Stone and Lost Abbey and then collapsed into our San Diego vacation rental.

"Ok, so WTF you're not just a little palm tree? Ouch that's sharp!" is exactly what was happening right here.

Stone Brewing!

Stone in Escondido has the best outdoor space and I loved this waterfall.

Lost Abbey! We ordered...a few ;o)

Creeper at the vacation rental in San Diego.

Oh man, it was so hard to pick just a handful of photos to share! Really, we have had such a blast and Andy and I alternate telling one another "It actually feels like vacation!" and "I can't believe we're on vacation!" So, yea, we are just super happy right now! And I pretty much feel like this:

Friday Photos [7.24.15]

Here are some photos from Andy & my week:

Andy, coffee, book, sunshine. That's my kind of morning.

Saw this in the Target parking lot.

Ella missed us so much when we were at Station 26 for two beers.

Playing games with Lindsay at her chemo treatment Thursday.

I can't get enough of these pictures of Lewis!

Apparently this was the week of me not taking pictures. We did a lot! We met our friends Lauren and Amy for happy hour (no pictures), Andy went to a baseball game Wednesday (no pictures), and we got all ready and set for our road trip that we leave on today (no pictures). WTF this is terrible practice for our upcoming vacation, but I'll remedy it over the next two weeks!

Happy 1 Week, Lewis!!

A week ago today the most wonderful thing to happen to the Hanson family in a long time happened: My sister-in-law Shanda and brother Ryan had a baby!

Lewis Charles Hanson joined the family and is the first grandchild for the Hansons. I've been getting regular photo updates of my little nephew that will have to hold me over until I get to meet him in person next month and ensure that nobody else but me gets to hold him for two glorious days!

Congrats, Ryan & Shanda! What a perfect baby boy <3
