 Here is Brea one week before our beautiful babies were born 

   Here are our beautiful little babies, soaking in the sun with their shades on....Annabelle in orange, Evelyn in blue.

 Annabelle is wide awake waiting for her daddy to hold her.
 Jim looks so BIG with his little girl in his arms
 She immediately grabbed onto his finger and held on tight

 Check out the size of that binky!

Twinsies Shower

2 peas in a pod!  here's some sugar cookies made just for our little girls

 Beautiful Mom-to-Be ready for a party

 Getting my "kiki" hug in early so they recognize me when the time comes!
 Colleen and Carrie found this AWESOME double pack.  (No, it didn't come with the creepy little babies.  That was just an added touch to the gift.  I'm sure the girls will attach to these dolls soon enough)
 This big ol' bear was a gift for Jim.  Didn't want him to be left out.  He will be a favorite lounge pillow I'm sure.  (the bear, not Jim)
"Bear Hug"  Everyone had to get in one before the evening was over.

Wine Tasting in the Dalles

The Baldwin Saloon, Note the random guy who jumped into the picture!

Sunshine Mills Winery, the Dalles Oregon.
No, we did not drink all the wine on that chandelier

We like the way they left all the "guts" of the old mill

We played Bocce Ball and goofed off like a couple school kids.

Robert goes Motorhead

Robert and Cierra have high hopes for their VW van but before they can start their cross-country adventures, Robert must learn how to tear down an air-cooled engine.
