Rest In Peace Duncan

Tonight my Mom and Dad had to make a very hard decision and let Duncan go to heaven. Duncan was the sweetest dog in the world and brought so much joy to our family. Dad, Mom and Pat-You were the best family that a dog could ask for and you gave Duncan a wonderful life! Now he is in heaven with Mokie.

We Remember...

Beautiful baby Genevieve!

Welcome baby Genevieve Arzabal! Since Derek and I were in Felton on Sunday we decided to call our good friends Mike and Rebecca to see if we could visit with them and their new baby! They live in Aptos, Ca, which is right next to where we were hiking! We ended up spending the afternoon with them catching up and holding baby Genevieve...She is SO CUTE! The first thing I noticed when we walked in the door was her HAIR! She has a full head of dark brown hair! (Just like Mike!) Genevieve is such a good baby and loves to be held and rocked. Rebecca and baby Genevieve are happy and healthy...It does not get better than this~!

Felton River

On Sunday Derek and I both had off work so we decided to go hike to the river in Felton. It was a beautiful day. We also managed to keep cool because we were hiking under the redwoods where it does not get that hot!

Beautiful Yard!

When we first moved in to this house the front area under the window was covered in weeds. Here are the before pics when we first moved in...

After digging up a million weeds we were finally ready to plant something. Dayle came over to help me dig up weeds in the 90 degree heat! It was so nice of her to come over and help me because I don't know the first thing about gardening! Thanks Dayle:)
Here it is after planting two new trees and three bushes~! This time Dayle and Virgil (Mother and Father in law) both came over to help plant everything...and it turned out so beautiful!

The trees that we planted have little purple star flowers, and the bushes have pink flowers.

Happy Birthday Dayle!

Labor Day ended up being a great day of celebrating and relaxing! Derek ended up coming home from Orange County early on Sunday afternoon so he had a day of vacation on Monday. I was supposed to work on Monday and got a call at 5am asking if I wanted the holiday off....OF COURSE I DID! So Derek and I got to go celebrate his Mom's birthday with Dim Sum for brunch! We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and then having cake and ice cream...It was a very nice holiday:)
