Wedding Party Night

Todd and I, Jimmy G and his daughter Jessie, Rach and Chris...all had a BLAST for Blake and Tessie's wedding. It started w/ the ceremony on the beach right in front of the Fess Parker Resort where Todd and I got married! It was a beautiful location. Afterwards, they had the Santa Barbara Trolley ready for the guest to take us to the reception...trolley was stocked w/ mini champagne bottles and Crown Royal!

Ben's 6th Birthday

After counting down the days until August 11th, it FINALLY arrived. Ben woke up to a plate of Eller's Donuts (YUM!)...he may not look too excited, but he was really happy. Ben is not a morning person.

Later that afternoon, he was allowed to invite 6 friends to his "6th" birthday party. We all went to Zodo's (a local bowling/arcade center) and had a blast.

He invited his friends from Montessori...(from left clockwise): Gavin, Cole, Andreas, Fabian, Jack, Ben and Sebastian.

A lot of family showed up...Grandma Denise, Uncle Justin, Uncle Conner, Michelle, Aunt Susie, and the Gibson family. Below, Uncle Justin helping w/ Nick.

Happy Birthday Ben...let the countdown begin for #7...uggg!
