Here comes Halloween 2012

Before the Football season started, we found this helmet at the Bulldog shop.  From this point forward Trevor wanted to be a Fresno State Football player for Halloween.  This isn't the whole costume, but just a good idea of how often this helmet was worn in the month of October!

End of the Summer 2012

When we weren't on vacation this summer...we did A LOT of playing with the Van Alens, a few zoo trips, many projects and crafts at home, and a lot of playing outside with the neighbors (this is Bodhi our favorite)

August 2012

Catching up on blog posts before the end of the year.  Yikes!  Where have the last 4 months gone?

In August, Trevor started back to Bluff View in the Sea Horse class.  He is loving preschool and doing so well!  We are sooo happy!  He knows many of his letters (both upper and lower case)  He can write his first and last name and has learned how to sit on the carpet nicely :)  He's ready for Kindergarten next fall!!

In August, we also went camping with Nana and Papa to the place Matt and I went all though childhood.  We got to go to New Brighton State Beach in Santa Cruz and camp in real tents for a week.  Trevor was in HEAVEN.  He got to set up the tents, play in the sand, fix the campsite, cook outside, make smores, go on bike rides, go to the bathroom with flashlights, play in the sand some more, and sleep in a tent for 5 days.  It was such a blast!  We also made it over the the Monterey Aquarium and Boardwalk while we were there!

Tahoe Golf Tourney

This summer we got to take our good friends Brett and Kim with us to the Tahoe Celebrity Golf Tournament.  It was soooo much fun!  We got to stalk celebrities, dance, gamble, eat, get a pedicure, and Charles Barkely even bought us a beer :)  Hopefully it the FIRST annual :)

First day of preschool 2012

Trevor started his last year of preschool at Bluff View this August. He goes Monday, Wednesday, and Friday all day from 7:30-4:30 (ish)...unless daddy or mommy get off early to get him! He is in the Sea Horse class with Mrs. Lockridge! Cheers to a great year to come!!

Santa Cruz 2012

This summer we went with my parents to our old stompin' grounds of Santa Cruz, Ca / New Brighton State Beach Park to do some real tent camping. Trevor had the time of his life. We went for 6 nights and Trevor would've stayed 10 more. The day we came home he was actually sad. We went to the Boardwalk, where he won the SUPER MEGA BONUS JACKPOT OF 4,950 tickets and went on the log ride. We rode bikes, went fishing, went to the Monterey Aquarium, played at the beach(everyday), went shopping in Capitola, cooked by the campfire, watched sealions at the pier and had an all around great time!
