Mikela Starts Preschool

Mikela was very proud of her outfit for her first day. She picked out these hot pink boots and the director of the school later gently instructed me that boots are not great shoes for school! Oh well, they will be great Sunday school shoes. Here are some pictures from her first day..

Here is a video about Mikela's first full day of preschool. I can not believe how big our little girl is getting. Wow 3 1/2 years has just flown by.

Kai Turns One

It is crazy to believe that a year has already gone by since Kai was born. He is such a joy and blessing. We love our little man. Here are a few pictures from his day, the party will follow in a few weeks. As is our tradition we started the day at Old West Cinnamon Rolls, then headed to the beach. We then met up with the Nemetz' for lunch at Avila and topped it off with ice cream at Doc Burnsteins with the Youngkins. What a central coast Birthday!

Ragged Point

So since we are moving in June, we decided to make a bucket list of things we want to do before the move. One of them was to go to Ragged Point for the day. So here are a few pictures from our adventure.

Its been awhile

Here are some pictures from the last few months. Sorry I have been totally slacking!
Here are some pictures from Mikela's 3rd Birthday Party, it was a Princess party

Kai is 7 months, just started crawling, loves to wave hi and goodbye, is a total flirt with the ladies and also loves his big sister
Joe and I are good, just crazy busy but enjoying the life the Lord has given us.

Home Sweet Home

We are now home for a while, least the next six weeks. In our world that seems like a long time! We have had a lot going on since we have been home and here are some pictures from the last few days!

Mikela loves feeding her brother cereal!

We spent some time at the Avila Barn with my parents.

Mikela taking a break from passing out FSK's

Our survey collector, Kai!

Hey, we made her come and pass out FSK's to all the new Freshman. The least we could do was let her have a Coke!

Kai loves to laugh, yell, and make a lot of noise. I think it runs in the family!

Our summer travels

This summer we have been all over California. We spent most of the summer in So Cal where Joe did some Crusade stuff and took some seminary classes. We had a great time with family and friends. We also got the chance to attend a few weddings and travel to the bay area to see some close friends. Here are some pictures from our travels...
