Still here

I'm still here, just haven't blogged lately. My camera is full of pictures but the battery always seems to be dead at the wrong moments. I seriously need an assistant to keep up with these little things in life that catch me by surprise.

Camille's seven months old now. She sits like a champ and doesn't like to be laying down if she's awake. She loves pears w/ oatmeal and cinnamon. She HATES peas. Her mouth is like a vice grip when she gets a wiff of those;-) I'm sure she'll loves them once they aren't pureed. Poor kid!

Russell is now the very proud owner of a brand new, bright yellow 16" bicycle. He rides it every day in the driveway or park if it isn't raining... of which we've had a lot (too much!) this spring. It's almost June and it feels like February. Russell is a sweet older brother and Camille can do no wrong in his eyes.

My youngest sister Andrea is getting married next Saturday, June 5th, in Edmonton, Alberta. We're packing four people's worth of clothing/items into ONE suitcase. It's getting expensive to check luggage. We usually overpack anyway, so this will be a challenge I'm willing to fight;-)

Off once again. Dinner for us, purees for baby sis!

Mother's Day

An early morning breakfast at Mimi's Cafe with my three biggest fans:-)

A warm and special Mother's Day to all moms with children in their arms and in their hearts. It is an honor to be called "mom."

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength... Impress these commmandments on your children. Talk to them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."
Deuteronomy 6:5-7

Loving Gilroy Gardens

Today was our first day of many this year at Gilroy Gardens since we bought the season pass (tax deductible!). It's an amusement park for younger children (3yrs-12yrs) and the 75F weather was perfect. It's been a cool spring in the Bay Area and the sun felt good for us all. The last time we had gone to G.G. it was the fall of 2008 and Russell was 2.5yrs old. He didn't have fun and neither did we. This time, he was all gusto for each ride! Camille just chilled in the stroller and enjoyed the day out. She is a very content baby.

Russell even did the Farris wheel:-)

Camille had a costume change half-way through the day due to her diaper blow-out. Times have changed in comparison to my visits of old at Six Flag Parks in California and Texas, but that's okay;-)
