All About lil o' Me

My photo
Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

Surf Dog Competition-FREE family fun!

6th annual Loews Coronado Bay Resort Surf Dog Competition

Saturday, June 4, 2011
Dunes Park/Beach 700 Seacoast Drive Imperial Beach, CA 91932
Dog surf contest This was a blast last year! My kids and i enjoyed this event tons!! If you can make it, it's worth the drive. 

Hang 20!!  Doggie dudes are Back and carving up some serious tubes!!  This popular competition where they don't make fun of dog paddling is an extension of Loews Loves Pets program at Loews Coronado Bay Resort. The photos make the surfing looking fantastic, the reality is that the waves are fairly mild just off shore and getting the dogs to ride the board doesn't always come natural.  Many jokes abound about hanging 10 (20), putting your toes to the nose, and other such doggy humor. The event is a blast to watch.

This year’s event will benefit San Diego County schools. The Loews Coronado Bay Resort, with the help of our surf dog heroes, has set a personal goal to donate $10,000 to San Diego County schools through this year.
Schedule:  10 to 10:30a.m.- Practice sessions by San Diego’s premier surfing school, Coronado Surfing Academy
11 a.m.- Event Begins Heat One: Small Surf Dogs (40 pounds and under) Heat Two: Large Surf Dogs (41 pounds and over) Heat Three: Tandem Surfing (dogs and humans)
1 or 2 p.m.- Awards Ceremony Judging Process: Each dog/team will have 10 minutes to catch their top two waves, and will be scored on confidence level, length of ride and overall ability to “grip it and rip it.” The Coronado Surfing Academy will provide surf boards and assistance during the competition.

General admission is FREE. Registration: If you have any additional questions, please call 619-424-4416.
