Camelot Fun Zone...

 { Aubrey at the Fun Zone... }

{ Aubrey at the park, looking stumped... }

I took Aubrey to the Camelot Fun Zone in Anaheim...She loved it. Lots of noise and so many bright lights...And so many kids running around and making noise, just what kids love.

We then continued to the park and took a few photos. It's hard to believe but this IS her happy face...

By the way, Aubrey now has 6 teeth.

Bower's Museum Bead Show...

{ Handmade beads at the show... }

{ Peace Beads...All handmade by crafts men and women... }

We went to the Bowers Museum Bead show on Saturday, they host this show every year and this was such a treat.  All the handi work is hand made and most by the artisans that were here.  So nice to see real artsy people in one place at one time.

Rainy day for Aubrey...

{ Aubrey with her pom-poms in her hands.... }

{ Aubrey wrapped up for the rainy day... }

I picked Aubrey up at the daycare and on our walk home the clouds turned dark and the wind was blowing a crisp cold chill...When we got home it finally started to sprinkle and then rain...We loved it because we were playing next to the french windows and Aubrey could touch the rain drops on the glass panes...

The tissue in her hand is actually a pom-pom, she likes waving it over her head like a cheerleader...Go TROJANS!!!

Erika's Traffic collision...

Damage suffered by the front end of Erika's car...Air bag deployed...

Last Saturday while on her way to work, some knucklehead ran a red light and ran into Erika's car.  The air bag deployed which helped, Erika is ok and did not suffer any injuries. Hopefully she will get a new car from the ordeal.

Wake up and Shout!!!

{Jasmine Star working her magic..Dane in background..}

Last Friday I went to a photography event at Cypress college. Nicole found the event and thought I would be interested. I met Jasmine Star, one of the best photographers in the OC. She was witty, a non-stop talker, mixing her stories, talking about her family and her husband and she did happen to throw in a bit of photo stuff.

She wasn't here to tell us how great SHE is, she was here to encourage each and every one that was in the audience, not only to get into photography, but to follow your DREAMS. I could go on-and-on but just click on the link below and you can discover Jasmine yourself...

The guy in the back of the photo in a black shirt is Dane Sanders, another top photographer in the OC. He's an actual professor, of psychology I imagine, because when all was said and done, I felt like he had cleansed my soul. Like Jasmine he talked about the power of YOU and the artist the lies inside of YOU...

Check out his web site and you'll see what I'm talking about...What a great way to get inspired on a Friday afternoon.

Encourage one another...

Aubrey loved being around so many kids and I had a hard time keeping an eye on her. Just wait til she is walking.

Bringing Mom JOY...

{ GranMa Tere and Aubrey... }

What a surprise for my Mom. We were all gathered at Sergio's new restaurant for the Blessing of the business and the family. I did not tell my Mom that I was bringing Aubrey and she was over-joyed to see her. She couldn't let her go. Aubrey was a bit startled seeing so many people at first, but then she jumped right in and had a great time...
