I stopped to enjoy a few minutes at the beach on my drive home from work last fall. I am so happy we moved here a little over a year ago. It confirms this is definitely where we want to retire.

Thank you. I completely agree, these little guys light up our days.

Son and DIL just told us a new baby is on the way and we are ecstatic!
