Abe: I grew up in a small coastal town in Northern California. I always had family ties in Orange County so it didnt take many vacations down here to know that it was where I wanted to live one day. I have been married for almost a couple of years, and Holly and I are hard working and trying to become happier people everyday. I work in Property Management in Newport and Laguna Beach, and I sell my paintings on the side.
Over Christmas we went on a cruise to Costa Maya, Mexico, Roatan Island, Honduras, Belize, and Cozumel. We had such a great time together as a family. The weather was wonderful and we had so much fun. Above is Crue on Christmas morning opening his present from the onboard Santa. Below is the Iguana Farm in Honduras, Crue loved feeding them and seeing the sea turtles, monkeys and other assorted animals.
Here we are snorkeling on the island. The water was the perfect temp and we so a lot of neat fish, including a lion fish, an eel, a sea worm, and a barricuda.
We recently got passes to Disney and have been putting them to good use. Crue loves people watching and going on rides. His favorite is the water area at California Adventure. If anyone has passes let us know and we would love to go with you!
Crue and his friend Jane on the Ferris Wheel. This rocked a lot more than anticipated and they both just laughed hysterically while the mommies were freaking out. (and yes that is a dum-dum his only piece of candy ever-don't judge)
Crue turned 1 on July 31, and we had a little party at the park to celebrate. He put out his candle with his fingers and enjoyed a healthy carrot cupcake. The first sweet he has had.
Here he is trying on his cute bumble bee outfit that his Great- Grandma got for him. We are keeping our fingers crossed that he doesn't grow much before Halloween so he can wear this.
One of my friends got Crue this piggy bank before he was born and I just brought it out for him to play with. Abe and I give him coins and he puts them in and then cups his hand out for more. Already asking for money!
