Daniel's Tooth

Daniel lost his 2 front teeth on the 1st and 2nd Day of 2nd Grade!
He sounds so funny now!

Jack LOVES our pool. I have given up. I try to keep him out of it.

It's impossible. He is always wet. Our floor is always wet. Our house smells like wet dog. Jack is happy.

Isn't that what life is about? A wet, smelly house with a happy dog?

Happy Anniversary!

Today I married my best friend. It hardly seems like 13 years ago; but on the otherhand, it feels like FOREVER! I am the luckiest woman that I know with the most kind, caring, compassionate man on this planet! I couldn't imagine walking through life without him by my side.
I love you Allen! Always and Forever!

My new favorite website

I think I was meant to live on a ranch, in the middle of nowhere, like this woman...I am addicted to her site! Love her photography and she even inspired me, the non-cooker, to try some stuff to make for my family! You will be an addict too!

Lego Camp

Ben & Daniel are fascinated with Legos! They got to spend two weeks at a Lego Camp run by Play Well based out of the Bay Area. It was a great experience ..... and even made the fascination that much more interesting!

If you have a Lego Lover and can find a Play Well clinic near you, I highly recommend it!

Visit with Dear Friends & the City by the Bay!

On our way to visit our friends in Penngrove we stopped at the Museum of Tech in San Jose! What a great time! Tons of activities Tech related ... we could have spent all day there but had an 80 mile drive that took 3 1/2 hours to get to our next destination. A definite must for next visit north!

This machine took a full head picture of you and then allowed you to change your picture and make it all colors and images! It was very cool!

Here Josh & Daniel worked with two Graduate students from Stanford unlocking Cow DNA! They were full of questions and had a great time!

We took a quick trip to Penngrove to visit our dear friends Julie & Robb on their farm! It was a *long* drive, but we had a great time! Friends, Friends and more friends! Daniel *LOVED* their donkeys! Tessa & Sage.

We had a bit of time on our return drive that we got to stop at the Golden Gate Bridge and Josh, Ben and Dad walked across in the FREEZING wind! Then we got to see Lombard Street, deal with tons of traffic and be thankful that we don't live in the City by the Bay!

Nice to get away ... as they always say... but nice to come home too!

Mentos & Diet Coke

Daniel is fascinated by everything Mythbusters!

He has wanted to do the Mentos & Diet Coke experiment as seen on You Tube for months!

We finally did our tiny little version of it!

Pool Fun at Julie & Robb's

What a great time the boys had in the Pool while visiting our friends Julie & Robb.
