Date Night

Gigi chose her Dad for date night and went to her favorite restaurant Frascati's.  She always has the best time dressing up and being her Dads special girl!

Torrance Fire Department

Jessie took her dad along for a special field trip to The Torrance Fire Dept.  Thank you to Fireman Tad for such an informative and fun afternoon.

These boots were made for walking...

and running and jumping and climbing!  For over 40 years these boots have seen a lot of territory.  Jeff wore them for years on his farm in Delaware.  Josette, Gigi, Jessie and now Van continue to wear them all over the South Bay.


Shocked, nervous, amazed and terrified are just a few emotions I feel as I watch my husband fly down the street on his custom longboard with Jessie and Gigi.  Excited, daring, thrilling and brave are just a few emotions the girls feel as they fly down the street on their Dad's custom longboard.

Memorial Day

Point Vicente Lighthouse

Spent the afternoon at one of our favorite spots in PV.  It was a gorgeous day for a picnic with my family and best friend!

Robin and Ted

 Oh I wish this picture was clear!  We had a great night at Ortega chatting and getting to know new friends Robin and Ted.  Look forward to seeing them again.

Open House

It was so nice to spend the evening at Tulita walking through Josette and Gigi's 3rd grade and Kindergarten classes.  They both were filled with interesting displays of beautiful artwork and writing.  This has been a year of learning, adventure and growth.  They love their teachers and classmates and will be sad to say goodbye. We are grateful and so proud of their progress!  Good job girls!

Date Night

It was Jessie's turn for a date night with Dad so she put on her princess dress and lipstick, picked the restaurant "Charlie's" and off they went for good food, good conversation and special alone time.

Dinner with the Friedman's

A great night spending time with Tad and Christine while the kids played with Riley and Shane.

Armed Forces Day Parade

My sweet friend Betty invited us down to her Fathers house to watch the parade on Torrance Blvd.  Front row seats to see the amazing tanks, bands and of course, our brave and courageous soldiers.  It was fun hanging with old friends and meeting new.  The highlight was the F16's that snuck upon us and rumbled the ground creating goosebumps all over.
