if i had a million dollars: what i would wear today

Today is a "I'm still incredibly bloated after Thanksgiving" day.  I need comfy, cute clothes, and I am desperate for a new pair of glasses.  My prescription is 10 years old.  That can't be good.

adventure: zoo with friends


do you think we go to the oakland zoo enough?  a few weeks ago we went with friends jess, heather, sarah, emma and liam.  ollie loved running around with his friends, as usually it's just boring old mom with him at the zoo.

tenaya lake in the thunder storm
about a month ago we went camping in groveland, ca, right outside of yosemite national park.  we did a little hiking.  ollie loved the hayride at the campground. and we got to witness a thunder storm, which was so welcome with this awful drought we have been in. so although tuolomne meadows was brown and dry, it was still an incredible weekend in yosemite!  thank you mom and dad for allowing us to tag along!

Adventure: Fishing at Del Valle

Ollie wanted to BBQ just like Daddy




We love fishing. But apparently we suck at it.  Once again we went fishing and did not catch a thing.  But it was a beautiful night on the lake with good BBQ so who can complain?

family pictures




Since Ollie just turned 2, we decided to get some family pictures taken.  Good golly it was easier taking his pictures when he was a baby.  He either screamed at the camera, or would not stop drumming on the props and talking to us with his little index finger up, lecturing.  These were the best we could get between crazy, Ollie psychoness.  Yikes.

earthquake lake: a view of the damage when the mountain fell into the lake

Ollie thinks you squint your eyes when you smile for pictures.  Don't quite know where he picked that up.










Sawtelle



Shoshone Falls





Every year, my family tries to get together at least once.  Two of my sisters live in Idaho, and my brother in Colorado, so it is not an easy task.  During the summer we got to spend a week at my Brother-in-laws family cabin (mansion) in Island Park, Idaho, and had a fantastic time, as always.  Jet skiing.  Swimming the lake.  Raft rides.  Exploring old ghost towns.  Playing games.  Family Olympics and Talent Shows.  I love my family and the crazy 16 kids it contains.  Can't wait for next year.
