santa cruz beach boardwalk

it's been a while since i hung out with lianne, pierce, and my parents - time to go on some rides and to the beach!  aaron came with us, but first he ran 9 miles around santa cruz.  lianne loves roller coasters and rides - she wanted to go on some of the bigger roller coasters, but she wasn't tall enough.  two more inches!  she should be able to ride them next year.  pierce on the other hand just went on a handful of rides.  all he wanted to do was go play on the beach and eat ice cream.  :)  pierce felt brave and went on the water ride with us.  before the ride went down, he put on lianne's sweatshirt and covered his face with the hood.  haha. his reward was playing on the beach.

pierce loved this ride - went on it 3 times

love this pic of thanhha and lianne

this boy loves his ice cream

can you find pierce?  haha

pierce's job - catch some fish!

mom loved this ride

pierce did not enjoy this ride

heading home

dexter's one talent

anytime dexter wants something, he sits up.  and we always fall for it.  this is probably why he's a little overweight.

pretty please?

sitting up always works!

5th annual cherry picking

slim pickings this year.  we are guessing it's due to not getting enough rain.  nevertheless, aaron and i still managed to pick 10.5 lbs.  tin and huong picked 8 lbs.  mom and dad picked 5 lbs.  and the price doubled from last year, instead of $2 a lb, it was $4 a lb.  delicious cherries though.  :)

typing specific directions as we are all retarded and can't ever remember how to get to lopez ranch.  right on walnut, left on concord, left on orchard.

tin does not like the cherries that huong picked

my wonderful hubby  :)

fort funston

instead of going out to dinner for my birthday, we decided to take emma and dexter to fort funston with their cousins, gus and shawn.  i forget how pretty this place is . . .

dexter could be out here for days sniffing

love this pic of my little guy

i think this is gus

not sure what tin was pointing at, but he looks like a drill sergeant :)

so freakin cute

yes, we are waiting for you mr. dex
