A celebration for Rob, Robin and Luca!

Today was a GREAT day because we were together with some fun friends celebrating an amazing couple and their baby boy! Rob and Robin did a wedding AND first birthday extravaganza today ~ it was PERFECT and a brilliant idea, if you ask me. Eliana and I met Robin and Luca at mommy's group when we both showed up in sweatpants, dirty hair, sore nipples (!) and tears streaming down our face. We knew we were meant to be friends ;-) I feel SO lucky to know these three wonderful people - they explode with happiness and you can't help but have a good time when you are around these guys! Despite the temps getting up to 100 degrees it was lovely afternoon celebrating an incredible family. A wonderful ceremony at the park. The Kirtley boys, keepin' it real. One hot baby in her cute jumper. Yummmm, strawberries! The Pullen boys goofin' around. Four babies and their hats. LOL.

Big girl feeds herself!

Eliana loves feeding herself oatmeal in the morning. She starts nicely with the spoon...

But quickly realizes her hand does the job much quicker...

Love starting the morning with the face!

Summer vacay!

Even though I am working five days of Summer School next week, I considered today our first official day of summer! We had a GREAT day with Auntie Mich and cousin Kaira at the beach in Santa Cruz. Eliana was a champ today ~ she had a short morning nap in the car and another short afternoon nap in the stroller on the beach, but was in a great mood all day. She was so stimulated by all the kids, dogs, crashing waves and of course her favorite person; Kaira! We finished the day with a few beers at a new brewery in Santa Cruz. It was a perfect summer day!

Project #1 (of 1million)

Our new roof is being put on as we speak!
Finally SOME work is being done but still waiting on our permits to do any fun indoor remodeling.

This whole process sure is a test in patience!
