Pool party cupcakes

I love any excuse to have a party. Yesterday we threw a "summer kick-off pool party" for some of Tyler's friends and church friends. I thought these cupcakes would just be perfect for the occasion. The sand is made of crumbled graham crackers, the teddy graham is floating in a life saver gummy, and the beach ball is a sour lemon head. The kids annihilated them! 



My sister and her daughter came to visit for the weekend and I just had to share the difference in size between my niece Kyla and my friends daughter Ella. Kyla and Ella are two weeks apart in age and a whopping 7 pounds difference in size!

Fathers Day Weekend ♥

I thought it would be fun to head up to Lake Tahoe on Saturday before fathers day. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, it was absolutely perfect. We went up with some friends and spent the afternoon hiking up Upper Eagle Falls, playing on the beach, then heading to In and Out for dinner. Oh how I love that we live so close to such beauty! 



Tyler always had to be in front. 


Tyler and his good friend Hailey. They are only 3 weeks apart and have been friends since they were in their mamma's womb. 

I know we have pictures together in this exact spot but it never hurts to have one more. 


Fathers day breakfast was delicious french toast kabobs. Thank you Martha. 


I found Deke taking a relaxing nap in his fathers day present. How cute ♥

A story for the grandkids....

Last night we had the privilege to attend the Motley Crue and Poison concert in San Francisco. My friend is dating the head bass player of Motley Crue and was able to score us some tickets and VIP passes. Awesome right? Deke and my brother David were like children going to Disney Land - SO EXCITED!!! The concert was amazing! 



Here is Brett Michaels of Poison. 

David and Deke enjoying the show! 

Nikki Sixx's dressing room! 

 We hung out with Nikki Sixx in his dressing room for a bit while he was preparing to go on stage. He was so down to earth and hospitable! I know it looks like he's afraid to touch my shoulder but he had make-up in his arm and didn't want to get it on my clothes. So considerate! 

 Here is the man himself on stage! 

They had lots of pyrotechnics! Even from a distance you could feel the heat! 

That ferris wheel looking thing on stage was like a circular roller coaster. Tommy Lee's drum set was attached to it and he went in circles while playing! It was so entertaining! 

Love birds at the show♥

I loved this disco-ball piano that Tommy Lee is playing. Here they are singing "Home Sweet Home". I was told that Nikki had written that song when he was only 17. Impressive!!! 

Tommy Lee upside down playing his drums!

 It was also kinda fun just people watching. This concert attracted ALL sorts of interesting looking creatures.

Here is a short video of Tommy Lee on his drum set roller coaster! I loved it!

baseball, party, car show... what a day!

Today was Tyler's last baseball game of 2011! Luckily we got beautiful weather which was a concern considering this season was full of rain, cold, hail, and SNOW! Spring sports are so unpredictable when it comes to the forecast! After the last game the team headed over to Cameron Park Lake for the end of season party. They had pizza, cupcakes, and received a cute little trophy for all their hard work. Then they all headed to the swimming hole to play for the remainder of the time. 




 I LOVE this one of Tyler. I might need to frame it! 



Partyyyyy time! 

 Here is Tyler receiving his trophy from his coach
 YAY Yankee's! 

Time to swim and build sand castles! 

 Before the game we went to visit Deke at a local car show. The fire departments always attend the community events. We were able to walk around and have lunch together :)
 Deke looks exactly the same in both pictures. I thought that was funny. 


From am to pm this has been an eventful day! I can't wait to just curl up on the couch and relax!

The Kodak Sport and all its awesomeness

Before leaving for our cruise I had decided it would be fun to buy an under water camera to take snorkeling. I talked with an electronic savvy co-worker and he had suggested the Kodak Sport. I looked into it and decided for the very affordable price and decent reviews it would be worth checking out. I made my purchase on Amazon for a little over $100 and let me tell you it was money well spent! 

This little gizmo and about the size of a cell phone, waterproof up to 10 feet, full HD video, color screen, and did I mention waterproof?! We had so much fun taking videos in our underwater adventures and it was great on land too! Here are a few of our videos to prove it. 

This was our underwater test. (Bahamas)

Small video of the stingray that we saw in the Bahamas. I wish the video was longer but Deke grabbed my ankle while filming because he thought the stingray was going to kill me. Lame.

Here is a land shot of Deke trying to catch an iguana in Puerto Rico.
