ahhh! Brings back memories, we lived in SanDiego and then LA for 5 years before coming out here. Made lots of trips to Phoenix to visit hubby's family too, probably the same way you went.

I used to love walking my dog on the beach, the waves are so calming. It is easy to sense the power of God when you are at the beach!

Love the pics, friend! And I've got a thing for Ava's tush too. ;)
