May: Oliver is in soccer!


With much coercion and ample practicing at home, I can now honestly say that Oliver kind of likes soccer.  Finally!

May The Fourth Be With You



This dorky family went to a May the Fourth party at our library!  It was a lot of fun, although I was slightly proud and slightly ashamed  when I realized that everyone in my family has Star Wars clothing.

April: Jude's First Camping Trip


windy & cold at the beach in Moss Landing

the three stooges

Phil's Fish Market

Suzanne and the little guy
We took Jude camping for the first time at 3 months old, and he did great!  He slept so well through the night.  Better than he sleeps at home.  We went to Mount Madonna with our friends and my parents and had a great time!  We love camping!

Toes In The Ocean For The First Time

Oh My Goodness, He Loved The Beach


Watching Cartoons On Cable!

Exploring Historic Sites
Jason surprised our little family with an incredible long weekend away to Monterey and Carmel!  It was heaven!  Oliver loved the beach, having cable, and the indoor swimming pool and hot tub at our hotel.  I loved the great food, the beautiful scenery and hiking, and the whirlpool.  Oh my goodness, he spoiled us!  Thank you Jason!

April: Dinner with Family


Jason's brother Nathan invited us to dinner at their beautiful new home in Oakley.  It was so good to see them and watch the kiddos act like savages!  Thank you Nate, Amanda, Hunter and Lily!

April: Mount Diablo






Oh my goodness, all this dang rain has made Mount Diablo so gorgeous!  We had a great time hiking around the freezing peak, throwing snowballs at each other, and bouldering in Rock City.  It was stunning! I love waking up everyday seeing Mount Diablo out my window!

April: Sycamore Grove




I am so proud of Oliver!  He did a great 2+ mile hike, walking the vast majority of the time, crossing streams, climbing elephant trees, peeing on trees, and running through the tall grass.  It was a great hike in the best park.

Happy Easter

Oliver Loves Lacy!

Dyeing Easter Eggs

Jude's First Taste Of A Peep.  He Loved It!
I asked Oliver what we celebrate on Easter.  He told me "Jesus' Resatonement."
Nice concise description.
