Today was the beginning of the third week of Chloe and Pearl's swim class. They are improving rapidly and having so much fun that it is hard to get them out of the pool afterward. I took several pictures of Pearl also, but she kept closing her eyes, so for now, we will just have to look at Chloe.

Mother's Day Weekend

I've had this weekend planned since January. My best choice for a Mother's Day is quality time spent with my family in a beautiful place. Therefore, we went to the Sequoia National Park. Even though there was snow on the ground, it was warm, beautiful and not overcrowded. We stayed two nights at the lodge and enjoyed the trails and big trees. Chloe and Pearl delighted in every twig, pinecone, lizard, chipmunk and rock. It was so much fun watching the girls run and play.

Sunday morning we headed back home so that we could spend Mother's Day with Pete's Mom and family. It was a wonderful weekend and enough great memories to last a lifetime.

A Cute Shot

I couldn't resist posting these pictures I took of Chloe today. She followed me outdoors while I was trying to take some good pictures of our home to make a slideshow. We are hoping to sell the house and find one that requires less maintenance. I caught Chloe standing by the jasmine and I thought she looked too cute!

If you're interested in the house go here.

Cinco de Mayo 2008

I think this was the busiest Cinco de Mayo celebration that I have seen at our local park. It was packed to the edges. There were rides and slides and lots of food, classic cars and folklorico dancers. It was a great diversion for a Saturday afternoon and a nice walk to the park and back home.
