It’s tradition…

It’s happened. The kids are growing up right before our very eyes.

It’s what we’ve done ever since the kids have been old enough to understand about making money and helping the environment at the same time.

Nothing beats spring break in Cali!

Dana Point, California is where we normally spend all of our family down time, school breaks and summer vacations. It is a beautiful, relaxing spot in Orange County right between Los Angeles and San Diego. We aren’t a big fan of Disneyland and major theme parks sucking up our money and fun. We prefer to […]
