Saturday Night... Sushi, Pool and a Fire

The night started out at a sushi bar. I got lucky again and chose a good roll. The last time we had sushi I ordered a dynamite roll, this time I ordered a MANHATTAN roll and a mexican roll. They were ohhhh sooo good. I had Ashley take this picture of me doing something stupid, but little did she know I was having her take a picture of the girls behind me.

Who took this picture? I thought this was a pretty cool picture. We played pool at the sushi bar after eating. This was a fun place to hang out all night long.

The night ended celebrating Colton's birthday with cheesecake in the backyard of out house. All and all a good day.

4th of July in Santa Barbara

The 4th of July was a lot of fun here in Montecito, but Snowflake knows how to through a better celebration. There was a parade featuring the best citizens of Montecito. Lady Liberty was my favorite (along with the older ladies across the street from us that were so patriotic jumping, screaming and waving their flags for each float).

Later that night we decided to have a BBQ down at the beach. Ashley, Colt, Darin and I drove down the rode that runs along the coast. Ashley picked out a nice spot on top of the cliffs to have the BBQ and watch the fireworks, but was over ruled and we had our party in a small cove right on the beach. As the night went on and the fireworks started the waves were washing close to us. Then a big wave crashed close to us freaking out most everyone. Even tough the fireworks weren't over the Decesare's and Ashley were out of there. Leaving Colt and me. We stayed because we wanted to see the grand finale. The grand finale came in an unexpected way as a monster wave wiped us out. As the wave hit we jumped to our feet and began scrambling to find out stuff. With our one flashlight were were able to snag the frisbee, volleyball, pots, dishes, cups, food, ice chest, chairs, toys, and grill. Everything was afloat and washing into the ocean. We should have left with everyone else... oh well. This was a great way to spend the 4th of July... on the ocean in California.

I am starting my blog while relaxing at my casita by the beach in Carpenteria, CA. I am out in California working at an install. I live in a little house with Ashley and Megan on the beach. It is going to be a fun fun summer.
