Trick or Treat

Filed under: Just Everyday,Special Events — Dad @ 4:10 am

So as I mentioned in the last post, Cezanne and Etienne were Candice and Perry the Platypus from the Disney show Phineas & Ferb.


Cezanne as Candice, Etienne as Perry, the “real” Perry and Candice.


Lanelle made some cool new decorations this year – milk jug ghosts and we put them out front to light the path for all the trick or treaters. Cezanne and Etienne needed to be in the shot and then Cezanne got silly.


Silly, Sillier, Silliest ?

Halloween & Fall Festival

Filed under: Just Everyday,Special Events — Dad @ 3:56 am

Halloween again and the hardest thing is trying to determine what the kids will be. We try to push them to pick something unique and fun ( no witches, ghosts etc ). We are huge Phineas & Ferb ( Disney ) fans and thinking I was doing Lanelle a big favor I suggested that Cezanne should be Candice ( my thinking was that the outfit was a red shirt and a white skirt which could be reused and not wasted ! Turns out this was NOT as easy to find ! ) Cezanne really liked the idea and we got her a full outfit from the red/orange wig down to the white shoes.

Lunch with the girls after the parade and a pose with Mrs Palia.


Later that same day was the Fall Festival. Etienne was Perry the Platypus from Phineas & Ferb and the two together were such a cute couple. The had so much fun getting faces painted, balloon animals, hot dogs for dinner and then later the cake walk ! So much fun in a single day !

Beach in Fall

Filed under: Just Everyday,Places Visited — Dad @ 3:48 am

Cezanne asked when we were going on vacation again, so I asked where she’d like to go if we were to go on vacation. Her answer, the beach. Since this was something within our power to make happen, we did. We did a little research on where to go and then packed a bag with some towels, beach gear, sand toys and headed west. We found Baker’s Beach just south of The Golden Gate Bridge and the day could not have been any better. Overcast sky, no wind, temperatures in the mid 60s. Perfect !


Cezanne enjoying the beach more than most !


Name in the sand, sharing with brother, a mighty pose.

Pumpkins & Play

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 3:45 am


We started to see some of the benefits of the move to California… Longer Summers…

Here it is mid October and we are able to still play outside, in the water and paint our fall pumpkins.

Apple Hill

Filed under: Places Visited,Special Events — Dad @ 3:34 am


We found somewhere to pick apples and keep the tradition going. It was a little further than the farm we picked at in Illinois, but well worth the drive. A lot of much smaller apple farms that were not too crowded and this made it great !


We found a few farm stalls selling pumpkins as well as apples and this one in particular had an amazing selection of different shapes and sizes of pumpkins.


Finally we stopped in to see good old friends and Cezanne got to fulfill a dream, riding a real horse. Just look at that face ! Clearly this was the highlight of the day !!
