I’ve been really bad about blogging this summer but I have been trying my best at keeping the Flickr feed up to date. So if you want to see what we’ve been up to all summer long, visit us there. While updating our photos, I thought of this adorable flashback.
This park is in walking distance from our home and we stop by quite a bit, especially after eating a hearty meal.

Even though Papa Bear insists we don’t make a big fuss on Father’s Day, we went ahead and threw him a celebration. Party on!
And to all our Grandpas (Grandpa Ceasar, Jim, & Bill), we didn’t forget about you. We tried something new this year which may have been a little risky. If you don’t ever get your postcards, please let us know!
Happy Father’s Day to all you dedicated daddies out there!

The Easter photos are finally up! This year, we didn’t have our buddies over but we still managed to have a good time.
The Easter Bunny was especially tricky for the hunt. The eggs weren’t filled with the usual goodies and sweets but filled with fortunes, reminders, hints and puzzle pieces:
Once the pieces of the map were carefully taped together, Ariel and Sylas were on another hunt for a key to the treasure.
The key ended up being the door opener for Dad’s car! Hmmm…
Hooray, it’s a wagon!
Time for a stroll around the neighborhood.
We hope everyone had a fantastic Easter holiday. Happy Spring!

These two are the best of buddies! Like most siblings, they have their rough patches throughout the day but can forgive and forget after the apologies.
Tomorrow is Easter!? It kind of snuck up on me this year and I’ve yet to prepare for the celebration. But we will try to make this year’s Egg Hunt a memorable one for them. Stay tuned!

This photo was taken with my old-school flip phone, about this time (5 p.m.’ish), 4 whole years ago.
Happy birthday to our super sweet son, Sylas! You absolutely bring so much joy and coolness to our family! We can’t wait to see what you have in store this year.
All our love,
Mom, Dad, & Sister
p.s. Stay tuned for more party pics.

On Friday, Ariel drew an elaborate picture of a Pokémon and decided she wanted to make a website called PerfectPokemon.com. We checked to see if the domain was available and it was! But we didn’t feel it was the right time to purchase a domain for her just yet. Instead I set up a sub-domain for her at ariel.m-digi.net. We’ve been scanning all morning to get things started. Check it out!

Sylas and I had a grand time watching Ariel and the rest of the kindergarteners lead their school’s Virtue Assembly Friday morning. She was pretty anxious about the whole ordeal but we think Ariel did a great job, as always!
You can check out the videos and rest of the pics in the gallery.
Later in the evening, the PTA held another assembly to raise funds for the art and music department. Dad was able to join in the fun and we discovered that Ariel’s painting moved on to the next round. Her piece will be displayed at the mall. Wow!
Here she is with her ribbons and prize:
We’re so proud of you Ariel! Congratulations and good luck in the next round!
