Jonathan's GWU Graduation, Class of 2014.

He did it!!! Jonathan graduated from the George Washington University with his Masters of Business Administration (MBA)...with honors!! It has been a busy and challenging 3 years, but he did it! I couldn't be more proud of this amazing man I get to call my husband! Graduation day turned out perfect with the sun shining and a nice cool breeze. The family all came up to help us celebrate this joyous occasion and we started out with some celebratory mocktails/cocktails at Circa in Foggy Bottom. 
All the Oliver Women here to celebrate one awesome guy!
One more obstacle knocked out of the sky! Together we can do anything! I love this man so much!
The whole family came up to watch the graduate receive his diploma!
After graduation we headed to Casa Luca. We hadn't been to Casa Luca before, but it was named one of GQ's 25 best new restaurants in America and boy were they right! One of the best restaurants we have been to in a while! The food was authentic Italian, the atmosphere was beautiful and the service was topnotch! They treated the graduate like a king and absolutely blew us a away with their attentiveness and complimentary champagne toast. This place is a absolute must if your'e in the DC area.

Easter in Pismo Beach

Easter with my beautiful family was an absolute blast this year!! There was a Pismo Beach Easter Egg Hunt that we took the kids to and they loved it! When we arrived, it was time for the five year old kids to do their Easter egg dash, so Colton got up in there and showed us how its done. This is him getting ready...get on your mark, get set, GO..........
My beautiful family, minus Uncle Jonathan, Grandma Pam and Glenn.

Colton got to hang out with some of the Pismo Beach Firefighters that were at the Park and he later said that was "his favorite part of the whole day". Firefighting is in Clark blood and he was very inspired by the local hero's!!
It was the girls turn! The 8-10 year olds were up and the girls put their game faces on.

We had such a blast this Easter. After the park, we all went back to the camp ground for some more family fun in the sun!!! LOVE my family!!Hope you all had a wonderful Easter with your loved ones this year!

Camping in Pismo Beach

My family LOVES to camp! It's such a great bonding experience and a great way to reconnect with nature and family! My dad purchased a 5th wheel a couple years back and he and his wife take it all over the USA to travel. They have traveled the whole perimeter of the USA in their "rig" and its quite comfortable. The family drove up to Pismo Beach to spend Easter camping on the Pacific. We spent 3 amazing days visiting, chasing waves, riding bikes, playing sports, eating delicious clam chowder and having good old fashion family fun! 
Home for three days!! Bliss!
Best Clam chowder in Pismo Beach.. 
HAPPY hour!!

There is nothing better then quality family time and I'm so glad I got to spend this time with my loved ones!
