Forgot to ever post these. My mom doesn't ask much but she wanted family photos. We were even able to make my dad sit still for a few. Thanks again Bre for taking care of moms request.
Nessa gets hitched. Always fun when the CP girls get together, and a trip to SLO never disappoints. Of course some Firestone's and beach time too!
While we were away the kids had fun at the ranch. Dirt hills and fishing, what more could you want!?
What's down there kids??
Field & Fair Day is back. Well it is called something else, but for many of us, it will always be called that. I was glad to see the balloons back and flying high. Gino gets up so early, we had no problem making lift off.
Cole is getting so big, and becoming a wedding expert!
We finally let Giada pick her carrot, hard to tell when those things are ready.
It was a big one, she was so proud.
Gino has been talking WAY more now. Giada can always understand him, and it is getting more clear for everyone else. He loves to ride dads "bateboard' I do love that Fall is on its way, but I will miss our evening bike/skateboard rides when that rain starts.
Me: Giada who wrote on the wall?
Giada: It was probably Gino
Happy Birthday Pops! Monsters Inc has been his favorite with the kids since Giada was little.
Short but wonderful lunch with Hager and her parents. They were en route to SF for a Giants & Niners weekend. Not a bad sports weekend if I do say so myself. The kids loved playing at a new park. Never long enough but always wonderful to catch up with friends.
This boy loves to help clean. Hope it continues!
We have swam a lot this summer and Giada has finally gotten it down! She is a little fish and seems to love it. On this particular day she said. "I look like I am ready for the Olympics don't I? When can I go?"
Stella loves her new ride. She has started saying a few new words and climbs on everything.
A favorite word is "nino" for her cousin Gino!
Haircut time! A popsicle and he sits still.
Giada wanted to go hunting with Mike, so off to go hunt doves they went. She was so patient, they were out there for an hour! Success 2 doves down, then she had to learn to clean them. It's about the whole process around here. Country girl!
The 1st pictures of the school year are costumes. Doctor & Cowgirl here!
This photographer gets everyone to smile, every kid, every year!
Grape Festival Fun
This year's new butterfly exhibit was a hit!
Pickle time! Always a fun project. Takes some work, but glad to have them to eat all year.
Some helpers helped longer than others!
Last minute adventure to the Jake & Sofia show. One of the better kids shows I have been to yet. Perfect length and more crowd interaction. Fun had by all and Nicole & I got out of there without buying souvenirs. Yeah us!
Mike and I celebrated 7 years! Dinner in Sacramento.
Always nice to have an adult dinner. Thank you Jeanne for watching the kids!
