A Visit from the Costers

Saturday the 14th, we had the pleasure of a visit from my cousin Chris, his wife Mary and their son Jackson. It was so terrific to see each other especially because it had been a very long time since we had hung out and Chelle had never had the pleasure of meeting Mary.
They arrived Saturday evening and we spent the night on the patio catching up.

Sunday morning we ate lunch at Dukes in Huntington Beach. The weather was a bit overcast, but pleasant and not too terribly hot. The Costers can handle hot though, they live in Phoenix.

We hung out on the beach while Jackson played in the surf. He looks like a pro surfer in the making.
Huntington Beach was preparing for the US Open Surf Competition that starts on Friday the 20th of July (today). It was a good thing we got there when we did. I am pretty sure that this weekend that beach will be super crowded and there wont be a place to sit.

Jackson only had two skate boards with him in the car, so of course he needed a new one. Chris is a great dad and spent a lot of time with Jackson helping him to pick out the perfect one.

Another nice surprise was that there was a stage set up and a band was playing cover songs. They actually sounded pretty good. It created a very cool atmosphere.

It wouldn't be a LAcrowe blog if we didn't have a picture of Chelle and I in some sort of embrace. I'm not sure if our readers know this, but we kinda like each other.

Back at the house, Jackson and I swam laps in our olympic sized swimming pool. Ok, it's not quite olympic size, but it works great to cool off and it's fits two floaties to rest on when you need a tan.

Bonus photo: believe me, I'm not a hater but seriously what has happened to our sense of fashion. We all sat in amazement as this guy walked down the beach with his shorts almost to his ankles and we were strangely glad that his t-shirt was made for a giant.

You two are so cute. Do I remember that you said that Chelle was pregnant? I couldn't find any pics where she looked preggers. Love the faux-hawk dude! lol
