Sorry the video is shaky at first, I was being pummelled by a wave.

Dan's parents came to visit us for a week, and we loved having them here! Dan & I had to work all week, unfortunately, but they got to see what a normal work week looks like for us, and had plenty of time to tour San Diego during the days. They made time to pick one of us up for lunch each day, though, and it was really fun having them at home every night when we got off work!
When the weekend finally arrived, we took Dan's mom out for a belated Mother's Day celebration at the Cheesecake Factory (obviously she is a woman after my own heart). We kept Saturday and Sunday laid back with shopping, walking on the beach & the bay, touring Old Town, church, and of course afternoon naps. :) Dan played roller hockey on Sunday night, and I think it was the first hockey game they'd seen him play besides the street hockey games he played with neighborhood kids growing up.
They're hoping to visit us again in the fall, and we can't wait!

Debby getting ready for Prom - 1995: "Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh!!! Prom is FINALLY HERE!! I should've gotten my nails done yesterday - how will I EVER get ready in only 4 hours? Sooooo nervous! I hope my nail appt. doesn't make me late to my hair appt., because then I...Oh.No. IS THAT A ZIT???" (you get the picture - hours of endless angst and frantic rushing around)
Debby getting ready for Prom - 2010: "Ugggh. Prom's tonight, isn't it. (Digs through closet for faithful black dress) Hang on, give me 15 mins to do something to my hair. You wanna grab fast food for dinner on the way?"
Dan getting ready for Prom - 2010: "I would rather have a root canal than go to this thing. Next year, somebody else is going." (He says that every year)
But we did have a lot of fun and Dan loves seeing his high schoolers have a great time together. The kids looked great, the venue was beautiful, the music was loud, I wasn't voted prom queen (still mad), Dan danced the Electric Slide and showed those kids how it was done, and a good time was had by all.

Dan's much more of a visionary than I am, and he's occasionally said that he envisioned his life a lot differently than it's turned out so far. Reading between the lines, he obviously means "I had a really boring life planned until I met you and it took a turn towards AMAZING!" :) I, on the other hand, am neither visionary nor reflective by nature. I live in the present and think about the present, plus or minus 6 months or so. But we both rest securely in the knowledge that we were designed for each other, and that God has brought us through the past 7 years to develop us individually and together as husband and wife. We're exactly where He wants us to be today, and it feels perfect.
The day that started it all.
Our friend's kid who's blowing bubbles in the background has his driver's license now. sigh.
