Tonight was Geno’s birthday.  As a special treat, we decided to do something quite rare and wonderful for him.  Watch and enjoy history in the making.

Summer Goodbyes

Posted on Sep 3, 2012 in Family

Labor Day, the first monday in September has come and with it summer says it’s last goodbyes.  Kids go back to school, and the streets of La Jolla get a little less crowded as the tourist season ends.  The only way to really celebrate Labor Day is at the beach and with a BBQ, and we did both.  It was a beautiful day and somehow it doesn’t seem possible that summer is ending when it really felt like it just begun.

Geno laughs as we sit under an umbrella at Children’s Pool. The water was warm today.

Danny on the beach. He had wanted to take Geno to Children’s Pool for a long time.  Geno was frightened to go in the water today. Maybe next time.

Geno relaxes on Camille’s lap in his hipster shades thinking about all the great times he had this summer.

Summer is about breaking out the hose and shooting each other with water.  That’s the way it has always been.

There is something about getting sprayed by a hose on a hot summer day that is even more exciting than jumping in a pool.

So refreshing and so cooling.

 What could get more perfect than the sound of an ice cream truck rolling down the street. Ice Cream Sandwich time.

So tired.  What a fun day. Goodbye summertime.

Hello Cutie Pie

So she has spent the last 3 months on the beautiful island of Catalina with her mums and pops enjoying her first summer.  Every few weeks she makes a very grand helicopter entrance back to San Diego to say happy hello’s to her friends, family and admirers  Of course I am talking about the young and adorable Isabella with the smiling eyes.  She made a grand entrance to San Diego this weekend which was a smashing success.  Just as quickly as she arrived she was gone – whisked away back to her Island in the sun for her last days of her first summer.

Cowboy Kid

The kid is serious.  He is a cowboy.  The cigarette is just candy.  The whiskey bottle filled with Apple Juice. So, it’s all just for fun shots.

We’ve all done it. The midnight snack.  Tu didn’t see me but I caught her raiding the fridge in the dead of night.

I celebrated my birthday yesterday.  It feels good to finally be in my 30’s since I hear they are the best times of your life.  Tu bought me a bunch of presents and an ice cream cake from my all time favorite place – 31 Flavors.
