Bad Luck

I don't know which one of us broke the mirror, but when it comes to cars we are cursed. Get this...
in the last year, we have...

- had a car stolen
-had a lady total our car
-had a rental car's window break on us
-ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere Nevada
-had roof shingles fly off in a wind storm and leave tar/scrape marks on our new car

and the most recent...

-Thursday night we headed to Carlsbad, CA to stay with a friend for the fourth. About 3 am(just 2 hours from our destination) our car engine dies in the middle of the freeway. Somehow James managed to get it to the side of the road. We got towed to the most ghetto exit in Barstow, CA, luckily we were close to town so the towing was only $150. We paid $60 for a three hour hotel stay. Poor Koby only got a total of 6 hours sleep that night:( but he was an angel the next day. We then wasted an entire day hanging out in a McDonalds and a Burger King waiting for our car that was being fixed by a guy with no teeth(so you couldn't even ask questions). At one point we saw a sign that said, "Barstow Mall", we walked to it and were VERY disappointed. A new fuel pump and $600 later we were on our way for our shortened vacation.
Just our luck!
An unexpected incident- $810.00.
A weekend on the beach - Priceless...

Here are some pictures of our wonderful weekend with Hoopes, and Dehn and Catherine and their kids. Hoopes lives RIGHT across the street from the beach! Although it was overcast most of the weekend, we had a blast(other than having a Possum almost bite my head off).
Koby and Anna played sooo well together. All I hear now that we are back is "Annnnaaaaaa, Annnnaaaaa".
