A week in pictures.

What a great week. We took the kids to Inspiration Point. They both did great. 

Connor has become such a great hiker. He just charged up that hill with energy and exuberance. He stayed in character the whole hike...note the kangaroo hands.  For the last year or so Connor pretends he is an animal everyday. He makes us call him baby kangaroo, or cheetah or tiger or what have you.  He is always an animal. I hope he remembers this, he is too cute.

We all wore our 'NEVER GIVE UP' shirts to represent theGSF.org

Chris' friend Phil who he's known since college came to visit this Saturday.  He always brings Connor the best gifts. This time he brought him a remote control car from the Car2 movie and he was thrilled! 

The happy bunch.

My little princess looking so pretty. And look she is getting a tiny bit of hair too!

Auntie Jess came over with Rick to visit the kids before the adults went out to a lovely dinner at Olio e Limone.

Rice Family Visit

We had a great visit with the Rice family. Connor was so happy to have his cousins here to play with! They swam, colored, built legos, hiked, walked on the beach, had lunch at Padaro Grill and just played.

So proud of these kids making it all the way to the top of Inspiration Point! 

Connor, Grace & Katie are all little fish. It's fun seeing how great they are in the pool.

Jess sported one of her many adorable bathing suits. 
Too cute!!

One of the highlights...wine tasting with the girls.

 3 cutie pies.


 Cousin Love :)
More to come...

Connor's 1st Soccer Practice

Connor started soccer this week. It's really a pre-soccer team of 4 and 5 year olds. It was so darn cute!
 He was excited all week leading up to it and it didn't disappoint. He had a great time! He has a few little friends on the team so he was feeling pretty confident. Yay for soccer Saturdays.
