Mission San Juan Capistrano and some birthday cake

Established in 1776 (ok kids what else was established in 1776…the United States as a nation) Mission San Juan Capistrano was built on the Southern California coast and served as a community church, school, home and center of industry for both Indian and Spanish residents of the area. The big Catholic Church collapsed in an earthquake during Sunday morning mass only six years after it was finished. It was still used as a school until the 1960’s and now on the property behind the historic mission stands a new basilica and mission school that is still in use.

This is our first mission, and we loved it. We each got a free audio tour Hannah and Eve got the kids tour and the adults got the fact walking tour.

2015/01/img_2093.jpg So so beautiful, we talked for a while to an artist there who was painting. There was a handful of artists in some kind of exclusive group who were their capturing perspectives of the beautiful mission.

I can’t believe that 10 years ago tonight about 10:30-11:00 pm I woke up with contractions and at 6:28 am was born a beautiful bouncing 9lb 3.5oz baby boy whom we named Caleb Benjamin. He has made us smile and laugh everyday since what a blessing children are.
