The long overdue Christmas 2012 post

Posted on by Dad

Well, we’re two weeks into 2013 and I still haven’t posted photos from Christmas yet. Bad Dad…but better late than ever. Christmas was very exciting this year. Avery loved all the decorations and Mom made an awesome advent calendar so we could have a treat for dessert every night. By the time the big day […]

Holiday card photos!

Posted on by Dad

Avery was kind enough to sit still for a few minutes (literally) this evening while modeling her Christmas dress so I could take some photos for our holiday card. Which photo did we pick? I’m not saying… but keep an eye on your mailbox.

Christmas tree decorating 2012

Posted on by Dad

You might’ve guessed it – but Christmas is a big deal around our house this year. In 2010, Avery was only a month old at Christmas, so she didn’t really get the whole concept. Last year, we were in the process of moving, so we didn’t put up decorations or a tree. So, this year […]

We still can’t believe it, but our little girl turned two last Wednesday. On her birthday, Sara brought her a bunch of gifts and they had birthday cupcakes for breakfast. Wednesday night, Avery opened some gifts from Mom and I. Then on Saturday, we opened gifts that arrived in the mail from Avery’s friends and […]

Halloween 2012

Posted on by Dad

Well, here Avery is in all her trick-or-treating glory. Avery’s nanny had the day off, so Avery spent the Halloween day at daycare in Berkeley. We were a little worried that Avery’s Dora the Explorer costume wouldn’t last all day and all night, so we got her a ladybug costume to wear during the day […]

We’re all about pumpkins lately, so we took a trip down to the pumpkin patch and fall carnival at Harding Elementary in El Cerrito yesterday. The weather was perfect, the pumpkins plentiful and everyone had a nice day out.

The 2012 Massachusetts Vacation Mega Post – Part 2

Posted on by Mom

Avery is STILL talking about everyone. Just when I thought she might be settling back to her schedule, she asks to go play on the beach with Amma or she wants to play with blocks at Nana’s house. This was truly the vacation of a lifetime for Avery, thanks to everyone for taking off work […]

The 2012 Massachusetts Vacation Mega Post

Posted on by Dad

Nearly a year to the day that Avery visited Massachusetts for the first time, we were back on an eastbound plane for another week of fun with the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. We spent three days in Leominster staying at Nana and Papa’s house and meeting Avery’s new cousin Flynn for the first time. […]

Sunday at Miller-Knox Regional Shoreline

Posted on by Dad

We recently discovered Point Richmond, a great spot about four miles from our house in El Cerrito. There are lots good places to eat and stroll around. And on the very edge of Point Richmond is the Miller-Knox Regional Shoreline. The park has hiking trails, a pond full of geese and seagulls, picnic areas, playgrounds, […]

Red Sox – A’s Game

Posted on by Dad

Since the early Spring, Avery and I have been watching baseball on TV just about every day after work in preparation for the big day – her first baseball game. On July 4th, we headed over to Oakland for the Red Sox – A’s game. After a rough start, Avery did great. We were reaching […]
