California Knows How To Party

I have been to many kids' birthday parties but this one was the very best for the following reasons (in no particular order):

1. PUPPIES!
2. Chickens.
3. A Tiki Bar in the back yard.
4. Mimosas.
5. A bouncy castle in the front yard.
6. Good looking guests.  Seriously, Danna, where do you find those pretty people?!
7. Mexican food. Filipino food.  Macarons. Homemade pastry. Sushi. Gained 10 pounds in an hour but who cares.
8. Cake with chewy caramel bits in the middle cream filling.  Oh god!
9. Hip hop music and Janet Jackson hits.
10. Bespoke decorations including a sign that says Hello in 20 languages, including Bulgarian.

The bar has been raised too high.  I can't even:

TMNT (Terrific Mutant Ninja Toddlers)

Just a bunch of family photos from the past two weeks. 






 


 

Boys and Cars

The only thing that's missing here is a Tesla.






Think Globally, Act Locally

Taking over the world one day at a time.... Visiting one park, petting one dog, taking one picture at a time.  But this is how it works - it seems that some days are just like the next, and nothing extraordinary is happening, yet the boys wake up bigger and smarter every morning with even more questions and ideas on their minds.  And we get to know our community better, and we get to find our place in it.  Just because our ambitions are great doesn't mean we are not aware of the importance of the small daily miracles around us.
