For our summer vacation Jamey and I had this grand plan to go to Hawaii for super cheap and celebrate our 1 year anniversary and get awesomely tan and enjoy our last summer of freedom for a very long while. Surprise, it didn't happen -- I'm more to blame for that than him, I have an incredibly difficult time spending money for my own enjoyment. However, something even better happened. We went to California, with his family, mom plus 3 of 6 siblings ain't bad, with a house full of nieces and nephews thrown in. I think my in-laws are insanely awesome for picking up on a few days notice and taking a week's vacation with us.
