Laguna Beach 2012

Matthew and I have always loved Laguna Beach growing up. We have both grown up watching the same things, liking the same things, and loving the same things and I think that is why we are so much alike. We have been on many dates in Laguna Beach and our engagement pictures were taken there. Another great memory was when we went there and Matthew gave me a handmade wooden jewelry box he made in wood shop for Valentine's Day. We have shared many great memories there before marriage and now after and now we get to make many more with our kids!

Matthew has been coming to his grandparent's timeshares ever since he was little. It was one of his favorite past times and he had many great memories with his family at Laguna Shores in Laguna Beach. Since being with Matthew, we have often visited his grandparent's when they stayed at their timeshares. Every time we went to visit he would remember new things to tell me of the things he and his family did. After we got married, Grandma and Grandpa Johnson were not able to make it down and offered us their timeshare for the week. It was nice to get away and we had so much fun! Matthew and I had a blast playing guitar hero and walking around Laguna Beach. We were hooked after that and he mentioned to his grandma that if she ever didn't want her timeshares anymore that we would take them off her hands. This was the year it happened and we are so grateful and happy to own them. We had so much fun this year! Knowing that now we can come here every year gives us the greatest feeling plus a great vacation every year. We could always trade them for other timeshares in a different location but for right now, Laguna Beach is amazing!

 My aunt's birthday was last month and my moms was Sept 8th. My dad gave them both cards with a fake ticket that I made that was for a Rascal Flatt concert Friday, Sept. 14th. They were so surprised and they had a blast at the concert!

 Matthew and I took the kids for a walk everyday. It was so nice!
