Father's Day 2010

I am a week late getting this up as this summer with these 3 kids has been hectic, to say the least. For Father's Day, Dad wanted to hike to Whiskeytown Falls so we indulged him. We got to the Falls, took some shots and then hightailed it out of there to make our noon reservations for brunch at Moonstone Bistro. The kids topped Daddy's evening off with some gifts and an egg race (the limbo and the sack race were vetoed by the adults - again).

We love you, Dad. You are awesome.

My Little Seahorse

My Little Seahorse was also Hot, Hot, Hot! Arabella was in her 6th dance production of her young 6 year old life this past Monday and Tuesday. The Redding Dance Centre did a production called "Feel the Rhythm" which Bella performed in a tap routine to Hot, Hot, Hot (it was ridiculously adorable). The ballet was "The Little Mermaid" in which Arabella played one of the seahorses. The entire ballet was truly breathtaking. Arabella made for a very charming little sea creature and salsa dancer, if I do say so myself. We are very proud.

Now we can really have a summer break.

Chill Baby

Our little Cooper was hanging by the pool the other night enjoying some milk. I snuck out and snapped this photo of her. She looked so serene and thoughtful. Of course, as soon as she saw the camera, she told me, "Stop it. Mommy, don't take my picture." That's my girl.

Little DaVinci

Our little DaVinci, Arabella, was at it again. This time, she did an acrylic (her first one) for Daddy for his birthday. She was very specific on the details she wanted and worked very intently on it one morning while Gary and the kids were on errands. Gary and I think the end result turned out pretty cool.

Priceless Entertainment

One Restoration Hardware box = 3 hours of entertainment for my beautiful man.

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

My other man is having a birthday today. He has had a day of clinic and times for Daddy. However, the kids are out to make sure he has a memorable evening. We have a kid made cake topped with skittles and home made frosting, a basket full of presents, a way-too-filled up pinata and talk of the limbo going on. It actually sounds a bit dangerous as I type this...

I corralled the kids all separately last week and asked them how old Daddy was going to be. Daddy, here are the answers, straight from the mouths of your babes:

Arabella: Daddy is 40. He will be 41.

Blake: Daddy is 21. Is he turning 71?

Olivia: Older than me and Mommy...
We love you, Daddy. Happy Birthday.
