Cruz's school held it's 2nd annual Trike-A-Thon. The kids were sponsored to trike circles around a lap in the school's parking lot. All the money collected will be donated to St. Jude's Cancer Research Foundation. Cruz make it around 3 times!

Cruz Turns 2!

For Cruz's 2nd Birthday we took him to visit a local mini pony farm, Tiny Trotters. For the super cheap price of $10 we were able to visit the farm with tons of farm animals, pick out our pony (Montey), brush him, saddle him and go for a half hour ride. Cruz absolutely loved it. Check out the photos.

Keiko and I .

Working on Dat & Lan's 50th Wedding Anniversary Invitation.

Back in March I subleased an office with a local Landscape Architect. I now have an intern, a former CalPoly student, Keiko, who has be a tremendous help in the past two months. She is off to San Francisco at the end of summer. I'm really enjoying the creative environment at the office and having a renewed energy focused on my business. Now I just need a website!

Growing Up.

We're in the process of changing Cruz's room to a big boy room... here's a video of his new reading corner just a few minutes after I set it up, he just sat himself down and started reading. Too Cute!

Camping at Montana De Oro.

Breakfast in the sun.

Hi Olivia! (We-da as Cruz pronounces it)

Lake, Cruz, Olivia, Makena

Bug discovery (it's on Lani's finger... really).

We packed up the car and drove 7 miles down the street to the wonderous Montana De Oro. A total of 4 families with 4 toddlers, and 2 dogs spent a sun filled weekend relaxing by the beach. Cruz had a blast with his buddies, Olivia, Makena and Lake, he was the only boy. He loves the beach, bike rides and looking at bugs (he never touches). He's talking quite a bit and pretty much copies the last word that you say, so just make sure the last word of your sentence is clean. As you may or may not know I'm not a very experienced camper and realized the importance of tin foil, we cooked all our meals on the grill with it and a sleeping bag, it was freezing at night. Can wait for the next adventure with the little bug... having fun!

Bounce House!

Cruz had his first romp in a bounce house! We were at the SLO farmers market and he demanded that I buy him a ticket. I'm not sure he's ever seen a bounce house and was surprised that he wanted to go in with out me. He loved it! As you can see he could barely stand up and was laughing the whole time.

Cruz and I made ranger cookies today. I gave him his own bowl and he measured ingredients and mixed his very own special batch. He's been at school three days a week and on Friday's all the kids make pancakes, that's how I got the idea to let him help me cook. I would have never though a toddler would be interested, but the measuring and dumping is what had him hooked.
