Interesting day yesterday.

Yesterday when Anthony got out of school we headed out to the San Diego Zoo for some family time. Since Kevin arrived home we're discovering the real joy we all get out of going and having outings together. It's just nice to spend time together having fun and exploring things. We're very blessed to be able to do this. I guess you could say we're trying to squeeze in as many California Adventures as we can before we move out East. Who knows where the future will take us!

Here are a few pictures from yesterday.

And then...We had not even arrived at the car yet when we got a call that the base fires had spread and people were being evacuated. So we headed back north to the base and this is the scene we were greeted with...

A few homes were destroyed, from what I heard yesterday, and those evacuated were mostly single Marines living in barracks.

On my way home from grocery shopping just now I saw that another fire has broken out just up the road from us. We'll see what the progression is as the day goes on.

These darn winds are whipping everything around. Hopefully there will be a break. Please pray for everyone's safety.
