In June, Gabriel turned 5 and I chose a shark party, and then convinced him to go along. I admit, his parties are a little about him spending time with his friends and a lot about a fun creative outlet for me. I like planning them. And the best part about this one, the youth at our church had a service auction and I won 3 wonderful girls to plan games and then come play with the kids for 2 hours. So I really got to do only the fun stuff.

Back in January we attended a charity auction for the youth at our church and with several other families we bid on a weekend at Legacy Lodge. We got to enjoy it the first weekend of June and had the most fabulous time. It's a traditional log cabin style - but you can't call a structure that is 20,000 square feet a cabin!

May started off with a wonderful trip to California to see my oldest and dearest friends. Tammy is having her first baby, so Jessica and I flew out for her baby shower and a weekend of wonderfulness. I love these girls, and I am so grateful for their longstanding friendship. They are amazing examples/inspirations to me on so many levels.
And a Jennifer - a very dear friend that I haven't seen in FOREVER - also made it out.
Seriously great weekend.
Lucas is already a veteran traveller - having gone to Palm Springs for the weekend with Mario and I to see the tennis match, then flying with me to New Jersey for 36 hours so I could attend a work meeting and then this trip to Cali - all before 2 months old!
but most of the time in the sun. And on lazy Sunday mornings, in our pijamas.
I love this pic of them totally lounging in their play house.
Gabe's complete obsession with horses and making ranches continues.
I love to watch him singing the songs - he LOVES the music!
Gabe spent the first two weeks after preschool ended behaving HORRIBLE, and crying about leaving preschool and saying he did NOT want to go to kindergarten. Poor sensitive kid has such a hard time with changes. Hopefully that will get better as he ages???
