The kids got Gary pool beer pong for Father's Day, but Ella is SO good at's a little worrisome! ;) #readyforcollege

Last Day of School Party 2016

We had a super fun last day of school party that ended in a poker night and sleepover!

June Happenings...

Some of the dads did the Camp Pendleton Mud Run...

It's birthday month so there have been tons of birthday celebrations!  Olivia's fashion party...

Burklee's sleepover...

And lots of moms-only celebrations!

We made it through the last week of school with Hawaiian day...

Field Day...

And the last day of school on June 16th with the classroom all packed up!

Writing Wizard Award

Ella was given the "Writing Wizard" award at school!  I'm so proud of her!  She really has become a great writer, and we love reading what she writes.

Pool- One Year Later 6.4.17

June 4, 2016 was the first day we were able to use the pool, so of course we had to take the same picture jumping in the pool one year later!  Except this year, Everett joined in- he refused last year- he has become such a more confident swimmer!

And here is last year vs. this year...look how much our trees and shrubs have grown!

Memorial Day 2017

Every year our friends have a great Memorial Day party- such a fun tradition!

We're old now so we have to take emergen-c while we drink!

When the girls man the bar, it means everyone has to take a shot who walks by!

Dance Recital 2017

Ella had another great dance recital this year!  I'm so proud of her and all her friends- they were amazing!!!!

Her teacher actually had a conflict this weekend and couldn't attend the recital so this is from the dress rehearsal at the studio...

Ballet costume...

Lots of besties...

Bridging from Daisy to Brownie!

On June 1st, Ella had her Girl Scout bridging ceremony at the roller rink where she moves from a Daisy to a Brownie!

The next day, Ella led the school song in front of the entire school!
