19 on the 19th!

Drew celebrated his "golden birthday" on July 19th. This is to say he is the same age as his birthday number - 19.

I really adore my boy. I may be biased, but I think he's handsome, brilliant, capable, and charming. Of course, that means, he is a lot like Rich. :-) And he still kisses me goodnight - I love that. I'm thankful for the young man that he is.


We kicked off the birthday celebration a little early by having lunch after church Sunday at Pie 'n Burger in Pasadena. We missed Emma - she's spending a week at the Hardy's in North Carolina. But we brought along one of Drew's favorite people.


What do they have at Pie 'n Burger, you ask? Why, they have burgers (amazing burgers)...


...and they have pie. You would have never guessed that, huh? Love this joint - the only thing that has changed in over 50 years are the prices! They even still mix their sodas by hand. (P.S. the Boysenberry pie is the best- warm.)


On Monday, Rich took the day off from work, took the top down on the Jeep, and we went to a "secret" beach in Malibu for a wonderful mid-summer beach day. Note we are the only ones sitting on the beach at 11:00 a.m. in July. Where is this beach, you say? Now, if I told you, it wouldn't be a secret, would it? (just kidding, see address below.)


Mid day, we headed to Malibu Seafood for a little fish 'n chips lunch. Mmm, another Harasick family favorite food spot. Killer fish 'n chips here, and some righteous fried shrimp, according to Drew.


Later that night we met up with our good friends, who happen to be Stephanie's parents, for the Dodger Game. It was the perfect night at Dodger Stadium: great weather, friends, an exciting game, and of course, Dodger dogs, peanuts, and real Coke.

Unfortunately, the "rally hats" didn't help. The Dodgers lost to the Giants 5-2. All in all though, one fine birthday for Drew!
