Mother's Day

Ollie loves playing on his very own "Eetar" with Mommy
Yes I know Mother's Day was awhile ago, but it was lovely nonetheless.  Breakfast in bed.  Church.  Guitar jam sessions with Oliver.  Fancy dinner by my husband for all of Jason's family and my parents.  I wish every Sunday was like this!

Family: Playing with the Grecos

My future pilot.  Ollie notices every airplane and helicopter that fly over us.

And this is how Ollie always looks when he is forced to sit next to someone who isn't mommy, daddy or grandparents.  My clingy little man.

Chilling with Grandma Greco and cousin Ava

Adventure: Bodega Bay Fisherman's Festival







a few weeks back we went to the fishermen's festival in bodega bay.  the drive, event and town were so lovely!  we had never been there before and had no idea what to expect.  it is just this sleepy little town with lots of boats (ollies passion) and beautiful coastline.  we had some great fish and chips at the festival, and loved the live music and watching the different teams build their boats from scratch for the boat races.  we especially loved watching a couple of the boats sink while racing.  afterwards we walked around the docks, had some clam chowder, and explored doran regional park and the even smaller town of bodega, where the movie the birds was filmed.  we spent the remainder of the night at my cousin ben's house in santa rosa with his little family and the missionaries.  what a lovely adventure.

Adventure: Camping at Mount Madonna



Ollie always puts his hands out to the sides when asking questions



Ollie loves boats, and had a tantrum when we made him leave the marina


Ollie loves that he has his own camp chair


Back in April, my parents invited us to go camping with them in the redwoods at Mount Madonna near Watsonville.  As always, Ollie loved camping!  He slept so good, and had a great time!  He loved his Easter egg hunt in the woods, and all the boats in Moss Landing.  As always, we had to hit up Phils Fish Market and the big fruit stand and beach there.
