Girls trip

Abigail and I went to visit Michela and Francesca (and their parents) at the end of Spring Break. Michela just loved having Abigail there and didn't want to share her with anyone... least of all her sister!

We attempted a sisters picture, but it didn't turn out too well....

However, I did get adorable shots of the girls individually....

Baseball season!

Baseball season has started. J.T. is playing in the coach-pitch division and is lucky enough to be on the Giants! Here are a couple pictures I took of the jamboree and one of the first games. He's having a great time.

Meet Daisy

I really should've introduced her earlier, but meet Daisy, the newest member of our family.... she is 3/4 Pyrenees, but was the runt of the litter so we don't know how big she will get. We have two of her litter-mates that are guard dogs for our sheep. They are 3-4 times her size. Isn't she cute?

School pictures

Last week was picture week at J.T.'s school. I was fortunate enough to get the job for the Spring Portraits. I suggested we try something new which was photographing one grade per day in the morning. That way, we got it done early leaving the teachers the rest of their day for class, rather than wondering and waiting to see when their picture time was. I think it went really well. Here are a couple of the kids...

Hawaii trip

Andy and I, along with our friends Clint, Christina, Jack and Shawna, took an adults-only trip to Hawaii. We had a really good time, even though we had quite the adventure getting there.

Our morning flight out of Arcata was cancelled so at 12:45 am, we loaded up and headed towards San Francisco. This may not seem all the crazy. However, highway 101 was completely shut down due to a massive mud slide. Have no fear! Jack and Clint knew of an alternate route. It was interesting to say the least! The road was bumpy and curvy. There was snow on part of it. And it was so foggy that we couldn't see the road. Did that stop us from getting to Hawaii??? No way! We made it to Santa Rosa and picked up our good friend, Matt Parlato, and he took us to the shuttle bus. And then we were headed to San Francisco airport. We all got a little sleep in and made it to our plane with no problems. Whew!

We stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village on Waikiki on the island of Oahu. The day we arrived was Andy's birthday and the following day was Christina's so we had a good time celebrating.

I really didn't take very many pictures but here are a few...

The weather was great. The company was great. The shopping was great. And lucky for us, the kids had a great time with all of their grandparents. Thanks Chet, Karen, Pam, Charlie, Mom and Dad!

Fashion show

A week or two ago, I took some photos at a fashion show for Glamorous (one of my fav stores). It was held at Scotia Inn and turned out really nice. Here are a few of the shots...
