#1's 9th B-day!

Can you believe it? 9?!?! Wow.

Here are a couple of pics from the actual day, there will be more of his party with school friends. Daddy has the memory card for that and is out of town...

G got a "fishing" bow for shooting carp on the river, some awesome Avatar figures, money, clothes, Legos...all the things little boys love.

#2 & #3 each got a fishing pole of their very own from Pop-pop and Beppe. You can see how much fun I had practicing in the pool!

More So. Cal Pics

We visited the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills...this is a great free little sightseeing diversion. It is a 55 room home with beautiful grounds. They were actually setting up for a wedding when we were there. It now belongs to the Parks & Rec/State Parks department and though you can't go in the home, you can see some cool architectual elements as well as the grounds with water features, etc. There were a ton of turtles in the ponds. It would be a great place to take a picnic lunch and spend a couple of hours.

These lovely ladies were visiting from Japan and their mom asked (interpreted through their tour guide) if our kids would be in a picture with them. She was very curious as to how old our boys were; I think her oldest was a bit younger than #1.

A Working Vacation with Jeff

Jeff had to miss quite a bit of the boys 2 week spring break due to the big project at Calabasas. So we decided to take everyone down for a few days to enjoy some sun and change of scenery. The night before we left, I spent the evening in the ER with #3 who broke his arm so you'll see his splint in the pictures. We came from cold yucky weather to nearly 80 degrees so we were loving the shorts time! You can even see some sweat on the kids. :) We ate at Carney's in LA; I think they have two locations and we were at the N. Hollywood one. Awesome hot dogs, per Jeff. I had a yummy wrap thing. I'll have to hunt down the pictures we took at the beach in Malibu.
