A Real Man’s Man in the Kitchen (And the Gym Apparently Too)

Posted on Jun 27, 2016 in Family


“This little puppy packs 75 cubic inches of shelf space, dualy suicide freezer doors and packs a whooping 400 volts of chilling power.”  said Danny as he showcased his new $1200 commercial fridge.  “Plus I like to keep a vizzy on my stock and the transparent doors keep me in the know at all times.”

Pausing, Danny hit the side of the fridge with his open palm to show me how sturdy it was and said I could give it a swift kick it I wanted. I declined but I could definitely tell he had upped the macho game on his kitchen cooking .  This was the real deal.

I noticed Danny’s shoulders looked a little broader and his biceps a little more defined.  As it turns out he’s been hitting the gym pretty hard too between beefing up his kitchen capabilities.  If you look in the picture you can pretty much tell how bad-ass his definition is.

This guy is really kickin it up a notch!

Camille Turns 3

Posted on Jun 26, 2016 in Family


Camille turns 3.  Can you believe it?  And she had a wonderful mermaid party to celebrate with her friends and family.   Geno made homemade pizza for everyone and people took their turns doing flips into the pool.  You can see the whole gallery here – Camille’s Birthday 3.


She had a nice 31 Flavors cake and she blew out the candles 4 times because she liked it so much.  We had so much fun at the party.


All the colors matched the little mermaid theme.  Even the balloons.  And there were just the right amount of balloons, until 1 escaped and that made Isabella laugh so hard.


But I don’t think Camille noticed.  She didn’t notice that one of the balloons escaped.


Happy Birthday Camille!  You turned 3!

Finally, after two weeks in Kansas, I am back to the beach.  It’s great to be home in the beautiful La Jolla.
