Fieldtrip To The Farmer's Market

I joined Van's kindergarten class for a bus ride and afternoon at the Torrance Farmer's Market.  We loved tasting strawberries, blood oranges, pumpkin seeds and honey sticks.  We ended the day playing on the jungle gym.  I love hanging with fun 5 year olds!

ps... Van had his 1st kiss on the bus ride home.  Kyla planted one on his forehead :)

Balboa Bay Club With Friends

A much needed mini escape to The Balboa Bay Club was just what the doctor ordered... especially for Sherry.  She's been under a lot of stress and grief so it was nice to whisk her away from it all for a night with friends.  Thanks to Angie for organizing and putting it all together.  Friends Forever!  They're always there for you... through life's most meaningful moments!

Chapman University Field Trip

Daddy chaperoned Gigi's 4th grade field trip to Chapman University in Orange.  They learned a lot about the many courses and activities on this beautiful campus.  They also ran into our friend Alec Cohen.  Super fun day!

Hunter Mann

Heaven received an angel!  Last week we lost our beautiful friend Hunter Mann.  She was our 10 year old, funny, sweet, happy, loving and wonderful friend.  She battled cystic fibrosis her entire life and accepted every challenge with a smile on her face.  She taught us to be brave, accepting, loving and appreciative.  We remember Lily's dress up birthday when she reluctantly let her sister doll her up with a dress and make-up.  We remember swimming, playing, BBQing and laughing! We remember her love of Spongebob and everything tie dye.   We will always remember the fun times we had and all the special memories with our dear friend.  We love you Hunter!!!

Rain or Shine

We don't care if it's raining at The Bay Club.  We love swimming in the rain!  Thanks Angie for inviting us for a day of fun at the beach and pool with Isabella and Shawnie!

Knotts Berry Farm

Our last day with The Lewis Cousins was filled with excitement and fun at Knotts Berry Farm.  We got there early and stayed until closing.  We rode most of the rides including roller coasters like The Silver Bullet, Pony Express and Xcelerator.  We love when Sasha and Dev visit!  Cousins are the best... near or far we're always connected and have instant best friends when we're together!  Love that we see each other every year and can't wait till the next time we're together!
