Our Early Christmas went off without a hitch Saturday morning with a flurry of food, wrapping paper, dogs and cats.
Then we geared up for a late afternoon beach fire to celebrate The Writer's Dec 20th birthday early.
We've been wanting to do this ever since we moved here and the weather couldn't be better.
I will let the pictures tell most of the story.
Loaded and ready to go in Mr. T's "new to him" pickup truck via insurance payout
for totaled SUV from accident last month.
Firepits lined up along Huntington Beach State Park
Our lighter didn't work! Sammy makes the jog to another pit to borrow theirs.
And a freeloader...
Birthday boy brings some more wood.
New California resident, Rachel from Orlando, joins us with...
...her husband, Chris, The Writer's high school buddy
and now back-door neighbor for awhile!
Two nice couples
Mr. T giving advice?
You can see the firepits lined up way in the distance.
Hot Dogs and S'mores on the menu
Mr. Tennis really likes his new hot dog cookers!

A good time was had by all.
Huntington Beach Firepits,
we will be back!
