A Tale of Two Jacks

After the Angel's loss last Sunday, seven tests in four days, and his 27th old man birthday approaching, Andy deserved a lumber jack kind of retreat...so that's what we did! Santa Barbara has to be one of the most beautiful places to go camping (or shopping)!

Meet Lumber Jack & Lumber Jill, or Jen whatever


Lumber Jack studied ortho


while Lumber Jen read love stories

While enjoying the view, a terrible storm rolled in and sucked Lumber Jen right into the ocean.

Luckily, Lumber Jack was a certified life guard and came to Jen's rescue


Even luckier, Lumber Jen used her mad crab walking skills she learned in 1st grade PE to keep herself safe until Lumber Jack spotted her.

Lumber Jack & Jen shared a sweet embrace and then celebrated their reunion with an intense game of FROLF, on an 18 hole course stashed secretly away in the middle of camping paradise




After an intense and sweaty game of FROLF, Lumber Jen asked Lumber Jack if she looked beautiful and he proudly exclaimed, "Yes, in your own beautiful greasy way". That was when she knew he truly loved her despite her odor. To show Lumber Jack just how much she loved him, she broke her rule of no showering and not changing her socks & transformed from this....

to this...

Lumber Jack was mezmorized by her enchanting smell, drug out his axe and built her a ferocious fire.

Lumber Jack & Lumber Jen lived happily ever after roasting weenies, growing old together and painting pictures in the sand


WOW, we really need to have a kid so it can take more pictures of us together! : )

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDY! THANKS FOR TEACHING ME HOW TO TRULY HAVE FUN & ENJOY LIFE!
Love always,
your #1 Lumber Jen

You should write children's stories... with the first one, "A Tale of Two Jacks"...what will the 2nd one be? Inquiring minds want to know!

You are so funny. Really, I am laughing so hard. That's the reason we had a kid, to get more pictures of us together. Jake just didn't get the hang of it, so we had another one. We were hoping our third one would come through and have some mad photography skills, but so far, nothing. I'm getting my money back.
