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".

Lego Land!!!!

We had such an amazing time! We met up with very good friends for a fun couple days in the San Diego area. Ben and Kainoa became fast friends and I'm only sorry these two super guys hadn't met earlier.
I highly recommend this trip to anyone with building obsessed or crazy busy little people in their lives. We could have easily spent another day there just playing in the water park or the huge climbing structure.
We also took a short trip to the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park. If it weren't at the end of a very busy trip, we might have made it through the day. We will certainly go back there in a few years. If you have a wild animal in your life, this is a great park to visit.

Can you guess where we've been?

Yes, Kainoa had his first trip to Disneyland. He (we) had a blast! We spent two great days with 50,000 other people and the the Disney cast. I threw in the picture below from today, we went strawberry picking. Tomorrow.....Lego Land!

Mother's Day at the Duck Pond

So proud

Our nephew, Todd, showed and sold his first lamb at the Dixon May Fair. Todd, watching the auctioneer.

It's been a long time...again!

Well, life with a three year has proven to be very busy. I truly believe he does not stop unless he's sleeping, and even then he's still wiggly! I'm going through photos over the last few weeks and will post over the next couple days. Enjoy!

New Toy & ABC's

I got the coolest gift for my birthday, but am just now using it. The Flip*Video
Here's a quick video of Kainoa signing his A-B-C's

Yes, at the end he says "I have to work now..."


I tried something new.....I cut Kainoa's hair with clippers. I certainly need a lesson, but I think I did ok, for the first time!

It's been far too long

since I've updated the blog....sorry! So, here are some shots from our day out today.

Kainoa loves baseball and absolutely cannot wait to be able to play. So, today we watched the groundskeeper at our local ball park setting up. He soooo could have been there all day.

Then, he found the play ground with lots of sand and a great climbing structure.
And, then we went to visit Uncle Scott & Aunt Cole. Kainoa got to pick out an egg.
Uncle Scott caught a dove. Kainoa wasn't too sure about petting it.
