Last weekend Andrew and I joined my parents on a trip to Coronado to visit Mark. It was a long weekend with a lot of driving but it was completely worth it! Mark graduated on Friday morning and to celebrate we went skydiving in the afternoon!

All smiles! It was amazing!!! 

Mark wanted to make sure we had the Tac Air Ops sign in the picture :)

We spent Saturday afternoon at the beach on Coronado.

We got a little sunburnt on the trip but it was so nice to have warm weather and spend time with family.

It seems like Andrew and I are getting a little stir crazy. It might be from summer starting and we are getting anxious for our trips to Oregon or it might be from living in the city for too long and we aren't city people. Either way, we are a little crazy; I mean, we are attempting to start a garden in our kitchen.

Last week Jana asked me what I do for fun in SF. Well, Jana, Andrew and I look at plants and flowers and talk about which ones we could grow when we have property. Then we think, why couldn't we grow them now? We have amazing windows and our current plants thrive here. So we end up buying seeds, potting soil, and a couple pots to (hopefully) grow our lettuce, spinach, and tomatoes once they sprout. Yes, we are going to attempt growing tomatoes indoors. 

A few days after we planted the seedings I saw a pineapple plant when I was shopping. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to grow a pineapple. I love pineapple. So... I walked home with a crazy looking pineapple plant and ignored the double-takes that people passing me did. Once I was asked what it was and I had to explain but I didn't care, I'm going to have pineapple!
