September Sessions

In September I painted Cali's toes for the first time, Curren started Kindergarten, Maile started preschool, JB and I went to a Donavon concert and the girls got really messy eating spaghetti!

In August I turned 30! I went out with my best friends to the movies.
Later that month we went and had a lovely picnic at the park with Grandma and Grandpa Hennings In Oceanside. We finished the month with a road trip to Thanksgiving Point in Utah where gogo13 played a music festival/fundraiser with bands like Third eye Blind, Dashboard Confesional, Neon Trees and 311.
At Metro Point at the Movies. We saw band slam.
Oceanside park.

Johnny can jump pretty high for a white guy!
Met Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional. Loved this band.
Loved this book too. It kept me busy on the 20 hour car ride home! There was major traffic and a suicide attempt off a bridge so the freeway was shut down. GOGO13 played a show on the freeway.

Photo Shoot

On Monday, Daddy did a photo shoot for a clothing company, and they used CJ as one of the kid models. CJ did great. He was so comfortable in front of the camera. Daddy even let him shoot some shots of the other models. Like father like son.

Here is another shot from the shoot. Everyone was so fun to work with.

Preschool Graduation

I can't believe that this little guy is graduating preschool and next year he will be going into kindergarten! Here he is with his little friend Joey and his teacher Ms. Grady. He loved her.
He got up and ran when his teacher called his name. He will do anything for a laugh.
They sang a couple of songs.
He looked so cute in his little cap.

Here he is with his little buddies at the jog-a-thon earlier that month.

This weekend we did a babysitting swap with the Lucas'. It was so great and the kids had so much fun playing together.
These girls had so much fun playing dress up!
The kids ate a yummy spaghetti dinner outside on the patio. They thought they were so cool sitting at the table with no big people.
