SLO, Venice, Birthday, Kings, Giants, Cousin Love!

 I'm a little behind on my blogging. A few weekends ago we decided to take a trip to SLO/Venice. Although quick, it was great to see our friends, hit the beach, and catch up. Thank you Clarins and Schweitzers for your hospitality!

 First stop....the beach of course!

Avila Farmers Market was a hit. Excellent food, and the kids loved dancing to the live music.
 Can't wait for ours to start! (Nice photo bomb B!)

It was pretty cold, Addy was shivering but still ate every bite!
 Then it was on to Venice. Great night catching up with Jen and Jame!
 Gino trying to squeeze into Ben's tub.

Finally we got a huge bubble!
 The event that inspired the trip. Happy 1st birthday Caitlyn!

 We were sure to represent our Giant's orange in all that Dodger territory. Giada and Cianna love playing together.  Picnics, and cupcakes!

When my mom has the kids they usually go on an adventure. Sometimes it is Impact Sports. 
The new rock wall is fun!
 And running into friends there is a bonus! G and Vi had fun running around I hear.

Sometimes my mom makes her own play dates - lol! Susan and Dale met my mom and her sister Ran at Funtastic. The kids had a blast playing together!

Go KiNGS! Mike had been talking to Giada about the basketball games, and the Kings forever. So, since it was potentially the last game, we thought we should go! It was a great time. Basketball really has a lot going on to keep kids entertained.  She was so excited that they were purple and wore purple head to toe!  

  Even more when when she discovered her friend Dylan was there too!

Tradition continues. All the girls head to the Giants game for Melissa and Natalie's birthdays. Fun day out with the girls.  Thank you Steph and Heather for watching the kiddos for me!! I never got the big photo of all of us!

My brother, Steph and parents were at the game too. Fun to visit with everyone and the Giants win on a walk off!!

Love these two!

It's been SUPER windy, which is awesome for kite flying!

Cousin love!
One bite for Stella, one bite for Gino!

Easter Fun, Race Video & Birthdays Galore

Every year the kids do the Easter Fun Run at Lodi Lake. This year Gino participated too. It is quick and the kids seem to look forward to it every year.

Click this youtube link to check out the run

Stella and Gino checking out the competition

Easter fun all week! Egg hunt at school with all her friends.

 Always a fun tradition taking pictures with the Easter Bunny.
  Giada was all for it and wanted to make sure he knew our address.

Gino felt about the same as he did for Santa. I told the bunny to hold 
on tight I was still going to take a photo! :-)

More Easter Egg dying with friends. You'd think they would be experts by now. I thought the new sponge painting would be fun but it was a complete mess. They all had dyed hands.

 Looks like he found our house and had a carrot snack as well!


Stella's 1st Easter

Fuhrman Easter!
Happy Birthday Sum!

The weather has been crazy lately. Some days we are inside being lazy in the rain. Some days it is hot and we are outside for lunch!

Start them young! Go Giants!

Giada has been into reading to Gino lately. I can't get enough of it! 
Annual California Olive Oil Council Meetings in Monterey. Always a nice getaway and great for the industry to get together and collaborate!

While we were away the kids had no shortage of fun. Thank you mom for watching the kiddos.  Giada had her 1st sleepover! Thank you Kerns, looks like fun had by all. Moni, sorry we missed the party. For the looks of it Pixie Hallow was a success!

Party #2 of the weekend. Thanks Heather for taking G. Happy Birthday Kiara! 
Last but not least! Happy Birthday Grandma Carol!
