What big kids they are now. We had a great diver/princess party today, with 23 kids jumping in the bounce house, dressing up in princess dresses, playing in the sand, swinging in the hammock, eating Little Mermaid cake... Thanks for helping us celebrate everyone!
Jeff and I took Ava out to lunch today at La Pizzeria, one of our favorite little restaurants in downtown Campbell - it is very authentic Italian and reminds us of our honeymoon in Italy...ahhh..... Anyway, she did very well and even got to try her first piece of bread - yummy! (Don't worry - she didn't have any wine!)
This is what Ben said the first time we arrived at their new swim class at AVAC's (Almaden Valley Athletic Club) swim school. It is a great facility - the water is like a bathtub and they really do a great job of making it fun and teaching life-saving skills along the way. Ava and I go together on Mondays, while Ben and Lily are old enough to go with an instructor (Miss Jackie) and with 2 other kids in their class on Tuesdays. What a blast.
For the New Year, we spent the day at Northstar at Tahoe, watching the ice skaters and enjoying some Starbucks. Ah.... Although it has been great spending so much time being homebodies at the Christmas house, it was nice to get out too. Ava, Ben and Lily loved riding the bus from the parking lot to the resort and looking at all the skiers and snowboarders with all their gear ("lots of stuff!"). Next year we'll be strapping skis on them for sure. (By the way, Jeff and I did get one fantastic day of skiing in at Northstar a few days ago - thanks to Nana and Papa for babysitting!)
