Birthday Bash

My Gram will turn 85 later this month and her twin brother and sister turned 80 in October... so we had big birthday party/family reunion in Santa Cruz. My extended family has always been close and I have always attributed it to my grandma (the oldest of the 5 kids) being a peacemaker. All of my dad's cousins made it to the party weekend from across the country. It was so much fun to see everyone!

Gram (right), Aunt Lu (middle), Uncle Buck (left)Donna and me... and Tanner. Donna (my dad's cousin) was my nanny when I was about 2 or 3 until she got married. I was a flower girl in her wedding. She has always had a special place in my heart. It was a blast to see her and all her kids... and her new little grandbaby!

Little Tanner...

... is getting so big so fast! Perfect place for the chef's helper!I thought this was so cute... he fell asleep (a rare occasion) in the car while playing with his toys.
"My new favorite face to make!"

He is a sweet, smiley, talkative, cuddly little guy! We sure love having a baby in the house again!

San Diego

We had a chance to spend the weekend in San Diego for the BYU v. San Diego State game. We had a fun little getaway. Tanner at Sea World. Gotta love Shamu!No trip to San Diego is complete without seeing Dieter!

Brooklyn and Jerett and Mikelle (two of my BYU roommate's (Kate) kiddos.... they came from Nevada for the game)
Tanner at the game... unfortunately I had to put this girly hat on him... we were in the sun for most of the game.

Post-game smiles! Obviously BYU won :)
