What we've been up to......

Exploring the UCD Arboretum:
A lovely walk in early spring.

Making Cake & Strawberry Pops:
Inspired by K's love of the Starbux Cake pops and Bakerella's many gorgeous designs, Kainoa and Allie took their turn trying the art of the cake pop:

A Story by Kainoa

Here's Kainoa's addition to the blog.

Allison and Kainoa went on a sleigh and we met Rudolph. Kainoa and Allison talked to Santa. We told him that we have been good this year. I wished Kainoa and Allison met Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Santa and Rudolph went to pick Kainoa up from the airport and Santa picked Allison up at the airport too. Rudolph and Kainoa watched Allison skip. Then Allison and Rudolph watched Kainoa skip. Rudolph will pick up Kainoa from the chimney. Then they picked up Allison and then they went to visit Papa. Allison and Kainoa rode on Rudolph. Kainoa and Rudolph sat on a sleigh and Kainoa, Rudolph, Allison and Papa played on a house and you never know what's in the pinata! There was a cake on the roof. They then sang the song: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

Catching Up.....

It's been well over a year since we've updated the blog....I'm sure most of you have stopped checking. But, my mom and Kainoa regularly ask about it, so I'll do my best to keep it updated (with Kainoa's help....) are some of Kainoa's favorite photos from the last year: (in no logical order)

We are family...

It's been a long time....

As we prepare for a trip to Hawaii for Phyllis' funeral, I'm going through photos from our last trip. Here's Greatgrandma meeting Kainoa for the first time.

If you haven't visited and you're in the Sacramento area, I highly recommend this county park. There was a great fishing pond, horseback riding, goats, ducks to feed and lots of picnic ares. We went fishing early on this very hot day. We didn't have any luck, but did have a lot of fun!

Hidden Treasure

We found this very cool nursery last weekend. Mostly Japanese Maples, but hundreds of other fun trees and plants. We could have stayed there for hours exploring. It's 5+ acres of garden and smack dab in the middle is a gorgeous koi pond. For 25 cents you can get a handful of fish food and feed the beautiful swimmers.
In true Kainoa form, if there is a sprinkler to be found....he finds it!
I had a little fun in photoshop with these....tried a couple different "finishes".
