Caden and Davin's first day



Today was Caden and Davin's first day of school. Caden is in second grade and Davin is in first. In the picture it is Davin and one of his favorite buddies Fernando. Caden is with his Dylan. I walked them in and Davin ran up to his new teacher and hugged her. Caden was strutting like he was the big man on campus. Davin thought that he wouldn't have as much fun in first compared to Kindergarten, because the Kindergarteners have an awesome play yard. Before I knew it Davin was walking in his class by himself. Caden still wanted me to stand next to him and actually held my hand while walking into the class. When I picked them up from school, Davin said "I love school", "I love my teacher can I have her forever?" His teachers name is Mrs. Shannon Hughes. She is great ! Ironically she was Caden's teacher when he was in first. Caden's teacher is Mrs. Jennifer Perales.

Our last fishing trip for summer '08

Our last little get away was with Papa Doug. We went fishing for three nights. We went to San Clemente Island for two and then Catalina Island for one. The water was calm and absolutley beautiful. We scurried around looking for the right kelp patty that all the fish hid in. We caught White Sea Bass, Yellowtail, Bluefin Albacore, Durado, Halibut and Squid. We saw seals, whales, a sea turtle, a marlin, a sun fish, flying fish and a shark... Yikes. The best part of the trip was me catching a HUGE Black Sea Bass. My arms were burning form all the reeling in. Once we caught it we had to let it go because it is a protected fish. This was Slaters first trip... he did great ! Caden and Davin had a blast ! It became a little crazy on the boat once we started getting a lot of bites... Rods were in every direction with hooks going everywhere, while all the little ones saying "its my fish !" Kids will be kids. Overall it was a great time. I loved seeing the excitement on the kids face when the were reeling in a fish. I am so happy that the kids enjoy one of Erin and my passions.

Kids Space Museum

The next day my dad and I took the kids to Kids Space Museum in Pasadena. They were able to interact with bugs and crawl through an ant maze. Caden enjoyed looking at fossil and animal fur with my dad. Timeri and Slater ended up jumping into the water...of course. We had a great time and the kids loved exploring the entire museum

After leaving our little slice of heaven... we were on our way to Tahoe for the final leg of our vacation. We stayed in the Tahoe Keyes for our annual family vacation. The boys had a great time with their cousins Tony Matt and Nick. Erin and I had a memorable time while playing black jack ! Before we knew it our 3 week vacation was coming to an end with the final days in Tahoe.
