These are pictures of just John and I. A lot of the time there are other people on our trips but these are pictures of just us...
We are starting at the beginning... that would be 1997.
Our trip was to go help John's mom move from Bean Station Tennessee to ...well I don't remember any more... Man that woman can move round. Anyway we started with a night in Palm Springs and then off non stop through tornadoes to Austin and then Tennessee. Have you ever been in a tornado in a soft top Jeep? Don't try it...
We visited John's Grandpa in Austin and I saw New Orleans for the first time.
This was also the year of the infamous Mark Anthony and Cleopatra costumes... we did take first place though.
was the year of selling the old house, buying another house and then moving to the "BIG D" ... yes Dallas.
There was time for a trip to Palm Springs and an unforgettable camping trip to the Sequoias to see the big trees and play in the river.
Dallas was great for friends and night life. There wasn't a lot of recreation in the Big D cause it's so flat.
But we did meet some great people and we did go to some really fun parties. If there is one thing Texans can do it's PARTY
We went to "Christmas on the Prado" in Balboa Park and were in the 4X4 Pride contingency in San Diego Pride 1997
In 2000 we still lived in the Cedar Springs area but had moved from the drug infested Black Hole of Tecali to the Versailles on Cedar Springs.
By 2001 we were back in San Diego living on the boat. You might think living on a boat is cool but unless you call the Queen Mary home it's gonna be small and cramped. There are some incredible perks though
Suddenly there was time for a day at the beach , weekend rockclimbing, and trips! Recreation was back in our lives!
There was time to work on the house!
There was time to play in Palm Springs!
There was time to do a surprise make-over on Grant's Bedroom!
