First Day of School 2010-2011

Haylee started Middle School and my baby started first grade and Brookie is a big 3rd grader now. All were a little nervous their first day but ended up loving it!

Endless Summer 2010


Walking to Kennedy Park to watch the fireworks

Brooklyn and Jace had the best seats in the house

After Madi's first time on the Pacific Spin

Looking for sand crabs!

Haylee and Kenz jumping the waves, kinda

Ally was a little nervous about her first race. Brooklyn was giving her a pep talk.
Ally got first place in her 50 free
Ally got two 3rd place medals in the finals and Brook got 5th, which isn't too bad because there was 40 kids in each event. Poor Haylee was super sick and missed the finals.

Fishing with dad

There just happened to have a dance going on in the rec room, the kids were super excited


Ezra was so excited to dress up
Ezzie liked the rocks way better than the gold
Beautiful Haylee with Kazzie


This was our view for the whole week
We had our own firepit. S'mores every night
Amy and Kristi riding tandem....tricky

Mike pulled up with Jarrod in the baby trailer. Seriously funny!
Our bike gang getting ready to take over the boardwalk
Linda Nutting said she forgot how to ride a bike so Mike was happy to give her a ride to get a shaved ice.

I'm sure this wasn't the modeling shoot Jeff was looking for...or maybe it was

Oh yes....these are original Lightning Rollerblades! ;-) I brought these babies out after 10 years and I still got it. Super Slow Joe has nothing on me!
Smash Ball record....162!

Belmont Park

Ally's first time on the roller coaster. She loved it
Tanner....just looking dead sexy
Night swim......crazy!!

Jarrod traded work for a week at a beach house in Pacific Beach. At first I was kinda bummed because the money would have been nice, but once we were there, I quickly realized that the memories that were made were priceless! The house was pretty big and had an apartment on top, so needless to say we accommodated a lot of people. Everyone that came brought bikes, water toys, sand toys, food, and good company. It was mostly a Pulsipher family get together but all were welcome and those who took advantage had a great time and we were glad they made the effort to come out.
This summer has been one the best ever! We have done so much, gone so many places, and made countless memories. It has really reiterated to me what a wonderful family I have! I have no doubt in my mind that my husband and kids love me unconditionally. I know that my parents are amazing people who love me and my brothers and sisters. It was reaffirmed that family is not selfish, undermining, jealous, or spiteful. Family is comfortable, fun, loving, understanding, fair, and above all, forgiving. I know who I am. I know what I want. And I know what is real. Even if nothing else had been gained this summer, that knowledge would have been enough.
