Happy 6th Birthday Jack!

I can not believe that my first born is 6 today!
Where did the time go!
He is such a smart, funny, conscientious,
little guy. Tonight we are celebrating by going out to a Chinese restaurant Uncle Bill and Auntie Kate and this weekend we are having more family over for a b'day lunch in his honor and then in February the kids party at SC is like the birthday that lasts for a month!
He is well loved!

Light sabors...all the rage

You know, I have never been a big star wars fan.
Sure, the first movie was good, but I think I pretended to like them to impress the boys.

And well, boys are the ones that love it.
Jack knows EVERYTHING about star wars...and he has never even seen it!

And they ask incessant questions about star wars in which I do not have any answers!
Luke is too afraid to watch the movie which is fine with me.

Anyway, since Christmas, we have a lot of light sabors and they are a lot of fun!
(and so far, no one has been injured by a light sabor which I find amazing)!

Carmel in Dec

Okay, I promise that this is the last of my December pictures that I am going to post!
But it was such a beautiful day in Carmel!
We had lunch on the beach.

Grandpa Ron guarded our stuff from the brave and hungry birds and squirrels!

I was taking a picture of the Pebble Beach golf course and wish I knew who this couple was to send them a copy!

The boys....always on the move!

This is one of my brother and his fiancee's favorite places to go in Carmel...they turned me on to it and I can't wait to go back! The Cheese Shop  If you are in Carmel and you even slightly like must go!

They have lots of samples and a very friendly staff.
We sampled (and bought) the most amazing truffled cheese - not quite like the one Jake and Diana brought over one night but equally amazing!

I even got my pix taken there behind the counter!

Road trip up north

It was a dark and stormy night...
okay, this picture was in Dec.
So far, January has been BEAUTIFUL!
but cold.

We headed out to the pigeon point light house.
It is under construction, now we know.
And it was a super foggy day.  We had 2 days like that in all of Dec!

Even under construction, it is a beautiful place to visit.
The rough and tumble ocean, and the giant light house!

Then we headed to Pescadero for some Harley Farm cheese
If you are ever in the neighborhood, you must go!
Lots of samples of yummy cheese!
We bought two!

Long Marine Lab

I know....bad blogger...but I have been incredibly busy.
Work has kicked into high gear
 and the boys are still rather active!

Santa Cruz has been particularly beautiful the last 2 months.
Tho we really need the rain!

So these are still from our christmas break when my inlaws visited.
We took them to the Long Marine Lab...
at least the outside of it, since it was closed.
It is a beautiful research lab for marine biology at UCSC.

It was an amazingly gorgeous day!

More Grandparent pix!

Still around Christmas as I did not get all of my pix posted!
Grandma Honey reading The Grinch to the boys.
This year it is one of Luke's favorites.

Playing play-doh with Grandpa Ron...

He is enjoying it as much as the boys!

A little fake snow on xmas eve with Grandma Trish and Gpa Danger.
Sure does seem like the boys love messy things!

WW: Grandparent games

These are all from  before Christmas, but still good!
Jack has learned to play checkers and roped his grandpa in to a few games.

While Luke plays candy land with Grandma!

Jack takes the game very seriously!
