I give you Cuesta Park!!!...A visit with George!!!

  George and the kids! They LOVED picking their own oranges!
 We drove to see George and he let us and the kids pick some oranges from his tree!!!
You can see Kiri's face is full of terror due to the mutated lemon that Eric is holding and they are convinced is some sort of Alien!!
 Lia picking her orange.
 George and the kids! They LOVED picking their own oranges!
 The girls...looking cold and coool!
I love their personalities!
Eric always tells of a trip when they were younger, before the days of cell phones and GPS's and how his dad spent hours looking for this park...and after his frustration was finally appeased by his success...he happily said the infamous line, "I give you, Cuesta Park!" only to realize they were not anywhere near it...so, when we drove to George's and I saw Cuesta park on my phone only a mile or so away, I had to stop for a photo op!!!

At my brother's house for his oldest son Parker's 4th birthday! Max, Lia, Kiri, Devon, Sierra & Parker! Parker is into star wars and max had the baker write th4e message that went along with his card..."come join the dark side and have cake!!"
one of my favorite things to do when I was a kid and it was too hot, was to walk on the pier...and the kids loved it too!!!
Kiri was grossed out that the fish had blood on it.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!



 The kids love running around the house looking for all of the tracks and pranks our little Leprechaun made around the house...that door will not be our door come this summer! YEA!!!!!

 We celebrated St. Patrick's day with friends and food...what could be better?

 Rainbow jello!!!!
 Max wore green so as to not get pinched...the shirt, however, did not save him from being squashed & smashed by his sisters...
 ...Lia's such a little faker!!!!!

A day in the life of Winter 2014-2015

 Max has been loving Kindergarten,...he loves His teacher, Mrs. Lewis, his friends, reading, and writing...he also loves having me pick him up from school and walking home together everyday...
 
 On special days we would go and have a treat...his special treat of choice is still always McDonald's...
 The girls have loved their play groups, story time at the library, their shows, Sophia the First (Sophia the Worst according to Max), Little Mermaid, Team Umi-Zoomi, bath time (bath hour), princesses and Disney's amazingly profitable Frozen and it's accompanying paraphernalia...

 ...they also love noodles...always with the noodles!!!

 Max still loves being a super hero...fighting the bad guys!!
Eric's birthday celebration at Jim & Julie's with Banana cream pies...
