San Francisco again

Seems like lately I have been back in the US more than in Aruba.  This time I had a travel mate with me.  Ava came along and reunited with a few friends, which was great. She was a trooper on the long ride and it was so nice for me to have a buddy along the way.

Our view from our hotel room - Harbor Court Hotel on the Embarcadero

Ahh, it is good to be back!

Nina! Boy did Ava miss her.

Dailey! They had a great playdate.

We love Sonoma

At the playground

 Arlo loves him a playground these days now that he can climb all over them.  And I know he could, in some way, slightly look like a girl in this romper (at least 4 people called him a "her" while we were at the playground).  But, I am going to dress him in rompers as long as I can.  I can't help it, I love them. I hope it doesn't affect him psychologically later in life.

Rock Climbing Aruba

 We took a field trip to Ayo and Casibari Rock Formations in Aruba.  It was a nice (hot!) day to climb around and do some hiking. 


 Getting eaten by the monster rock!

We miss you and love you!

NYC is so cool

It makes me feel so insignificant


Ava turns 6

I can't believe my little tiny baby Ava is 6!  We had a good ole mid-western birthday in Aruba - bowling and Pizza Hut.  With her favorite (and only) Aruba friends, Jayron and Kaden.  She loves them both! She said it ranked up there with the best of her birthdays, which was good to hear since she didn't have all of her SF friends here to celebrate with. We love her so much!
