Paper Mache

Memorial day weekend was a bit grey but it gave us an opportunity to do dabble in some new projects - Paper Mache.... of course we made a dinosaur (Swimming Stegosaurus to be exact).

Visit from Nana and Papa Joe

Owen and T had a great visit with Nana and Papa Joe. They covered a lot of ground when they were out here from Santa Cruz boardwalk to the wineries in Nappa (even visiting V. Sattui).

Wild Flower Hunting

This spring the wild flowers were out in full force and we had a few weekend morning hikes going to look for some. While Owen was really into it, Tess was more interested in her rocks.

Springing along

Been awhile since the last post. There are a bunch of new pics on flickr. Tess is turning a corner, she is actually "wanting" to walk and communicating with a shake of the head 'yes' or 'no' -- evening waving bye when its time to go to bed. Some words are starting to become apparent but she has the 'pointing' thing down pat. The teeth are starting to come in and she is starting to play by herself (although she would rather bother her big brother).

Grandpop Loughery came out for a visit and Owen didn't leave his side for a minute. It was some good quality time, even managed to pull off a pretty big hike without too much complaining from O.

Now we are prepping for Nana and Papa Joe!
