Beach Day

Two weeks ago (yes, I am very behind in my blogging), Jay and Kendall and I got to church at 8:45 am to work in the coffee shop only to discover that the large refrigerater was broken and all of the smoothie mix, milk, half and half, cream cheese, butter, everything had spoiled. We don't know exactly when it stopped working, but it was obvious that it had at least been a few days. I had never seen milk separated like that! Fortunately, everything was closed up so it didn't smell bad. We helped the crew clean out the fridge and decided to go to the early service, since our assistance in the coffee shop would not be needed (the fridge is fixed now and everything is back up and running, yea!) Kendall was really disappointed that she wasn't going to make it to youth group, since youth group is only during 2nd service and we were going to 1st service, so we decided to let her stay after church to go to youth group and Jay and I went to Starbucks (we had to have our coffee, after all) and then went to Walmart to pick up a few things we needed while we waited for Kendall. We were leaving Walmart and ran into our favorite employee there. He's a gentleman that is probably in his mid-fifties and he has a build similar to Santa and I think he must be related because he's got a huge heart. Everytime we see him, he's wearing a long ring necklace made of dollar bills. He's constanly raising money for the American Cancer Society and doesn't hesitate to tell everyone about his cause. We may even join him for the big walk in July. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by this horrible disease and I just love this man who has such a heart to help out in any way possible. We're always digging for dollar bills when we see him so that we can add to his necklace. This particular day it was absolutely gorgeous outside and our friend practically demanded that Jay take me to the beach. We thought it was a fabulous idea, so we went and picked up Kendall and came home and grabbed a few things and decided to have lunch at Avila beach. We didn't grab our suits and sunscreen and the whole bit, we just wanted to play a little catch and have lunch and watch the ocean. We stopped at Trader Joe's on the way there and picked up some lunch and then drove to Avila. There were so many people there that we had to park way up the highway, but it was worth it. What a beautiful day! There was a slight breeze, it was warm out, and we were so content there sitting on the steps having our lunch and walking down the beach that we had not a care in the world. I love days like that. We didn't really have a plan, but it ended up being such a wonderful day.
