Gino turns 1! Aptos & More!

Team Calivirgin plays Bocce .... we went 1-1, that's considered a success!
 Happy Birthday to Gino!  He of course needed our family tradition of rainbow cake! Mike and Giada worked hard to complete the masterpiece. Giada was very particular about it being a surprise for Gino, it was cute.

Can't believe my little guy is 1!

He was so serious while he worked on his cake, he was slow to start digging in...unlike his sister!
He likes his new ride!
Giada was excited to get presents on Gino's birthday too! Family party was lots of fun!
The kids and I headed off this weekend to Aptos with Hilder, KR, Nicole and Dylan! Good times! I think the kiddos tired out their aunties, and I know Giada was tired. She slept until 10 Monday morning and took a 3.5 hour nap that day!!! This is unheard of for my kid!!

Sand beard

After KR worked so hard on the Hilder was quickly destroyed! Lol

 Hilder said to me at one point, "Do you think she will just lay down and watch a movie" I laughed and said we can try!
 One day we took an adventure and WALKED from Aptos to Capitola. It was an adventure to say the least. But we all survived, met the Kernals in Capitola and had a fun walk back!  The Mojitos at Zeldas didn't hurt either.

 Crabbing is a highlight when you are in Aptos!

 Fun morning at the beach!

 Pizza making with Hilder! It was delicious! Who knew Batman could cook too!

Since it was Ginos birthday weekend, we used that as an excuse to get an AMAZING cake from this Bundt cake place in Los Gatos. It was delicious!!

 On the way home we stopped by Emily Lorber's tutu party! It was darling! Happy Birthday!

I'm 1! I wouldn't sit still or in one place for mom's pictures. I ran to my sisters room and then room to room and thought I was SO funny. Updated stats to come next week when I go to the dr!

Summertime, Stella Professional Pics, Corn Festival & Dentist!

Summertime is here 100+ last week, lots of time in the water for the little ones!  Gino wasn't so sure at first...but warmed up quickly!!

The kiddos have no shortage of fun with Nana and Pops when we are doing oil work.  

And I already knew Giada had Pops wrapped around her little finger, but this was the topper! Nana said Pops came in and said, "we need nail polish" my mom said, "for what?" He replied, " Giada wants her nails painted!" 

We need our Stella fix, so we have lots of visits down to Matt and Stephs throughout the week!

We headed to the pool with the Archuletas one morning, it was so relaxing!

2012 Corn Festival!
What you have never heard of it??? It's in Brentwood and apparently on it's 20th year!! Let's just say it is NO Asparagus Festival and I think we could have planned it better! But it was fun to spend a couple hours in the sun and Giada had a blast. Snow cones, rides with her aunties, face painting and a toe ring!

Dinner Club BBQ with the boys and kids! 

Sunday Funday with the Bushalacchi's and Kerns!

I said, " Really Giada those pants with that dress? " "Mom, they both have pink match match!"  

Check up at Dr Hilders! 

Day with the fam in Old Sac!
We got some beautiful pictures of Stella Jean. Thank you Stephanie Moe! Thank you for letting my kids come jump in a couple. Nana thank you for taking them while I was working. They love their cousin!!
