Tahoe, Red's Shower/Bette, Tball, Gymnastics - a week late!

Well folks it happened! A week without blogging and now I feel SO behind - lol!
Two weekends ago I headed to Tahoe with the Cal Poly Softball ladies for a weekend getaway! Thanks DS! Then it turned into celebrating Red's upcoming nuptials! So we added wedding shower and bachelorette party to the mix.  Good times had by all. Relaxing, beautiful weather and LOTS of laughs. I mean serious belly laughs. My abs hurt for the few days after returning home - NO joke! Thanks Jacks for setting up the casa!!

With this competitive group - lots of games were played. Flip cup, volleyball, over the line....below is a pick of the winning team ....except we can all agree Jackie was victorious in the over the line game!
Breakfast Wedding Shower



Yeah Red! Bachelorette night was "wiggin out"  - What I learned from my black haired wig....was that I will never be dying my hair that color!  Soon to be - Mrs. BRANCH - we look forward to celebrating the big day soon!

While I was away the kids had lots of fun without me! Giada spent the afternoon with Seve and Stella..



 And Gino looks like he was getting into mischief with Pops..


 I did miss a T-ball game... Giada wanted to wear her hat "just like dad" 


 Look at that form - lol

 



Eating is so much fun!



Seconds after she told me "I'm not tired for a nap" 



Gino is over watching his sister out there during gymnastics...he wants in on the action!

Birthdays! (Mine, KR, Jude's), T-ball, Open House, & Mother's Day

Well folks, the day has come....for Giada to start playing sports! Tot T-ball or bust!
Giada is on a team with her buddies Dylan and Seve, which make it just as much fun for the parents, kids and fan club to watch.  Week 1 a parent was with almost every kid the entire time they were in the outfit and Giada shed some tears. You know for things like - being upset when she hits the ball and doesn't get to field it herself... But, week 2 MUCH better. Although the 3rd time they are batting or in the outfield, all the kids start losing interest..it is a LONG hour!
 
 

This was a week of birthdays!  Kristen and I celebrated the 29.3 this week!
 We spent a relaxing afternoon at the spa to celebrate KR...
And a delicious dinner with friends. Press Bistro in Sac was delicious once again and the gelato place around the corner - amazing! Fun night!For Mothers Day we had a relaxing day at home, a visit to see my mom and lunch with Mikes family.  Giada made me this card at school. I do like the tan she gave me!
Lucky me, with a birthday after Mother's Day I get 2 celebrations. After spending the day with the kids; Mike and I went out to dinner alone, which was rare and nice...then cake pops for dessert! Good start to the next year!



 This week was Giada's open house at her preschool. She was so excited to show us her work. Here are a few gems. She's undecided on her future - lol ....
 

 We celebrated Jude's bday this weekend. Amy had the Serpentarium come with animals which was SO much fun. I should have known Giada would enjoy holding every reptile they brought!!

 Busy weekend, Gino and I also attended a baseball themed baby shower for Cain.  The party planners did a great job- the theme was darling! Bre was showered with nice gifts, and we had a nice evening with lots of laughs!

 Nicole Grauman decided it was definitely time for Gino to have a cupcake....he seemed to enjoy it!

Randoms from the week. 
Giada wanted to be just like dad and threw on his "Tremari Ranch" hat! The Barberas would be proud!

Gino is making progress standing alone or with little assistance!

 Swings are fun!

Pics with dad, St Marys Festival, & Peyton

This week we were able to snag a cute picture of Mike and Gino..

Giada of course didn't want to miss out on the action! 
 This weekend Peyton came over to play while the boys watched some basketball.  The girls play so well together. They spent a lot of time having a tea party....
 painting...
 and in the bath! I thought I'd never get them out of there!

 Who needs toys when you have a box and string to play with! 
This big boy slept 6 hours last night, lets keep that up Gino Ray!
 St Marys Olive Oil Festival this past weekend. Always a nice one to see people we haven't seen in awhile.  Dru thanks for stopping by, your son is adorable!! 
 Mike was having some Ram pride! I was just thinking...that guy must be HOT in that suit!!  
While we were at the festival....the kids headed with Nana and Auntie Steph to the Street Faire! Looks like a good time was had to me.
