2 Birthdays and an Anniversary!

This is a busy week for our family! Ben is now 17, his birthday is the 7th and he was born on our 4th anniversary which made it our 21st! Then...there was my birthday on the 9th...Busy, busy!

Even Oreo had a birthday message for me!

Since hubby and I rarely do anything big for our anniversary, I asked him to take me shopping on my birthday and out to lunch so we could spend time together. We visited the new Home Goods store. It was really nice!

On Saturday, hubby piled the kids and I in the van for a drive...We went to San Pedro and Palos Verdes. Both are on a large hill (PV is referred to "the hill")

San Pedro is our harbor, it is large and very busy where most of our ships come in for the Southern part of Ca. Palos Verdes is beautiful, wealthy and has an ocean view or a view of LA from all sides.

We visited the Korean Friendship Bell, Point Fermin Light House, and went to the Marine Mammal rescue center...these are our favorite places to go when we feel like being tourists in our own community!

This is the lighthouse, they were decorating it for the holidays:

And the park attached, overlooking the ocean:

Then we drove over to the Korean Friendship Bell. It was given to the United States during our Bicentennial as a measure of friendship. It also is surrounded by ocean:

And we found these sunglass-wearing totems there...they were new!

All in all, it was a really nice weekend spent with loved ones. What more could a girl want?
