APRIL 2009

OUR TRIP TO CALIFORNIA TO SEE GRANNY WILSON and other FAMILY:

At the beach in Newport, as always!


At the carousel at Newport as well:

And a trip on the ferry between Balboa Island and Newport:And eating frozen chocolate bananas on Balboa Island: Visiting Aunt Karen and Uncle Verle at their house in Vista with Granny:



And finally, the joyous 12-hour trip home during which all the children got along, never argued, were never for a minute bored, and shared the love all around:





MARCH 2009

So, this is Sam, now almost 1.5 years old. It's pretty clear why his moniker is "Happy Boy" (his brother Adam is, of course, "Energy Boy")


And this is Raymond, our neighbor from across the street who is really bonkers about Sam -- he comes to see him pretty much every day and Sam always has a big smile when he does and then waves goodbye with all the enthusiasm he can muster.


ANNA had her 3rd birthday on March 28 and was ecstatic about the clothes and dolls she received. (three photos and two videos below):

And here is our little cutie with Connie who watches her and Adam in the mornings and has been an enormous blessing for us.
