Saturday was "Living History" day at Sugar Pine State Park. They had all kinds of free crafts for the kids. Caroline and Jack made hats!
Smile Big Girl!
This is Caroline's little friend Li-Ann. They had a ball riding around in this little trailer.
(The dirt on her face was a permanent fixture while we were camping!)
Enjoying a meal with Vanessa and Joshua
I NEED MORE FOOD!
Unfortunately my camera ran out of battery life before I got pics of "catching marsh mellows" (what we do to marsh mellows when we roast them according to Caroline), riding in the wagon, and all kinds of other things. Oh well. We still have the memories.

I have to say, I am rather proud. This was my first attempt at growing vegetables and this is my first yellow squash that was ready for harvesting. It is happily on my shish-ka-bobs right next to the Tri-tip.

Sorry it has been so long everyone! I have been a single Mom while Rick has been at camp for 2 weeks in a row. I have not had any time for pictures! Finally the other night my friend Shawn and I took the kids downtown to Cool Nights in Nevada City. It was so fun. I live right downtown now so we were able to just walk there. The kids had a really great time. It had rained all day on Wednesday so it was nice a cool outside.
We had to get some ice cream. Caroline had not had a nap that day and needed the extra sugar to make the long walk back up Broad Street.
Here you go Little Brother!
"Yeah that's right. I just sit here and look handsome. If you're lucky enough I'll kiss you with my ice cream lips!"Lately our little Jack has been playing peek-a-boo and talking soooooo much. His top two teeth have just come through and that makes 4!!! He is such a happy baby too. He has been sleeping around 11 hours or so at night and napping well in the day time. He is growing so fast. I have started buying 2T clothes. He just turned 9 months on the 17th!

My wonderful Aunt Rana was recently joined in matramony to wonderful man named Satwinder. We call him Monu. They were married in May and last Saturday was their wedding reception. Monu is Indian so they had a traditional Indian wedding reception at The Star of India in Yuba City. It was sooooooo fun. I wish American wedding receptions had this much culture.
Rana & Monu
This beautiful cake was made by two of Rana's co workers.
Rana & Jack. They both share the most
This is when the fun really started. In the Indian culture
dancing is huge at the wedding reception. This version of
the money dance is the best I have ever seen. The bride and groom dance
in the middle of the dance floor while all the men dance in a circle
around them throwing wads of $1 bills in the air. All of this is done to Indian Techno music.
Rick and my Dad throwing money. The dance floor.
This continued for 3 very LOUD hours.The way these things work are a little different. You show up and mingle, they serve appetizers. A while later they cut the cake. Then comes three hours of crazy Indian dancing and then at about 9pm when you can barley keep your eyes open they serve the most delicious Indian food you have ever tasted. It was awesome. We had so much fun. We wish Rana and Monu the best and much happiness in their new lives together. And thank you Monu for bringing some culture to this very American family.
