Quick Getaway

Last weekend Chase had an interview for the PA program at USC,
so we took the opportunity to take a quick weekend trip to California and escape the AZ October heat.
Although Arizona is finally starting to cool down, you just can't beat California weather,
especially by the coast.
Friday we stayed near the school, which is in Alhambra, and then Saturday we stayed in Torrance so that we could be close to the beach.
We loved Torrance. It was such a neat little town, and it had such a quiet and calm beach.
Here are some (or a lot of) pics from the trip...

Mason was too cool for school walking around the campus like he owned the place

So yummy in his snowman jammies

 Such a pretty and peaceful beach

Waving "Hi" to all of the birds :)

All in all, it was a fun trip, and we want to go back to Torrance sometime soon!

16 Months

It seems like every month, Chase and I are saying "This is my favorite stage, Mason is so fun"...
and he is.
I mean don't get me wrong, he gets into everything and he is quite a handful,
but we just love his funny little personality and the way he runs around squealing like he's at Disneyland or something.
He loves to jump up and down (on the ground, on couches, on beds, anywhere really...), dance, babble on in his own language, and especially throw things (because apparently everything should bounce when you throw it, just like a ball does).
We love this little man to pieces and can't believe how fast he is growing.
Here are some pics...
