One & Five Year Picts

Ryker-kun's One Year Old photos.  Just like Niko did for his first year photos, he is wearing a traditional Japanese outfit sent over by his second cousins in Japan.

A side-by-side comparison.

The boys together.  Nerd time!


Niko's Five Year Old photos. Cuties!

Gage Center

Behold the Gage Center....  this place is amazing.


Rope Swings....

 This photo cracks me up!  Hold on TIGHT!!!

 This is actually a boxing pad that kids can swing on into a foam pit.

By far, the foam pit was Niko's favorite place to be.

And trampoline floors.  How cool is that?

More Soccer Fun!

Beginning stretches... 

 Catch the leader.
 Drills around cones.

Capture the ball. 

Ryker wants to play!

I love this photo!

Someone has really started to walk....  the Abuela is helping out here, but he has been practicing his walking skills more and more at home.

Congrats Triveece and Michael!

It's not often we get all dressed up!

Ahhh... Neil.  Never fails to blink for a photo.  :)   But look at us - all dressed up with no kiddos!

Beautiful church!

Here is the beautiful bride, Triveece.  Such a pretty dress!

I wish I had brought my big camera, this was a nice photo op.  My little camera did a nice job, but it would have been better exposed with my big camera.  Here is Triveece walking toward Michael.

Exchange of vows.

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Penelton!  What a wonderful wedding and a fun reception!  We were so excited to witness our friends start a new chapter in their lives.  Congrats!!!

First Soccer Practice

Niko-chan had his first soccer practice this weekend.  We enrolled him in a soccer basics class so he can learn the basics before he goes into league play.


Practicing goal shots.
Niko's fans....  Daddy, Godfather Mark and Ryker-kun.

Here they are practicing taking shots with someone on them.
Niko actually had much better ball control than I thought he would!
More practice with someone closing in on him.
