Lazy Saturday

What beautiful weather California boasts! Yesterday Jon and I joined some Fuller friends on a trip to a beach in Malibu. The wind was quite nippy, which was unfortunately deceiving for my sunblock application - I got REALLY burnt on my face and the backs of my lower legs. (You'd think I'd learn...) We spent hours lounging in the sand, snacking, playing games, and chatting with the Aussie lifeguard who kept stolling by. He showed us how to identify rips from the shore, and told us all about the selective L.A. County lifeguard application process. (They get paid very well here, but I could easily see why after barely dipping my toes into the extremely frigid ocean.) We also saw a seal, several passing dolphins, and hundreds (literally!) of seagulls and pelicans.

After cleaning up at home (and assessing my sunburn damage), Krissy and Dave invited us along to a poker party. Though initially convinced he wasn't great at the game, Jon ended up as the night's big winner! (I keep hinting that we should take our skills to Vegas... it's only a 4 1/2-hour drive away!)
