Huntington Beach - Pre-Kids

When Shan and I were first married I moved into his condo in Huntington Beach. It was our home the first year of our marriage until we moved south to San Clemente. We have SUCH fond memories of our first year as husband and wife. We loved our little condo and the associations pools and jacuzzi's. We loved riding our bike downtown and to the beach/pier (yes only a mile away). We spent many afternoons jogging, walking Junior to the nearby Starbucks and local restaurants. We ate breakfast downtown at Sugar Shack most Saturdays while we read the morning paper, we rode bikes along the boardwalk, Shan surfed non-stop at local breaks and I invested in my future skin cancer many days sunning myself on the beaches. Since moving we've rented it to the same tenant until last month. We've been working hard to get it up to speed and ready to rent again. Today we spent another day cleaning, repairing, hanging blinds, cleaning, changing lights, cleaning, and showing it to prospective renters. We also took some time to take the kids to the pool and hang out with our old neighbors. It really was a great day. I took some pictures of the condo to post online if the current prospective renters fall through. I thought I'd post them here for you all to see.





Jordan was obviously wiped out by the time we got home. Both kids fell asleep before we were even to the freeway. They were SO good all day and so patient that they both got to have pizza and M&M's before crashing. Look closely at all the dirt on her. Nasty! :)

What a darling place! Isn't that time before kids such a treasure! I have many fond memories of living in my condo with Ryan, hitting our pool for an afternoon swim, or playing an early morning tennis session. Those carefree days!

What a great place!!! Weren't we supposed to help you with getting the condo ready?!?!? Am so sorry that we were not available??... be sure and let us know if there's anything leftover that Jeremy or I can help with, although the place looks incredible! And especially with pizza AND M&Ms?? Jeremy will be bummed he missed the fix-up party... :)
We too have such fun memories in our first place. I love thinking back on those days!
