Happy Birthday Honey Bunny!

Happy Birthday Honey! Today you turn 3! Its been a blast having you a part of our family for the past three years. We don't know a life without you. You bring an energy only God could describe, laughter has filled these halls and echoed off of these walls and brought us such joy! We love you more than the water that fills the oceans, and farther than spaceships can fly! Look at how you've grown!! Honey Aloha-Rain Hockman May 26, 2006 9lbs 3oz. 12:25am

Annual Strawberry Festival

We went to the Annual Arroyo Grande Strawberry Festival yesterday where we met up with my brother and Branden, and friends Monique and her daughter Giselle. It started out cold but by the time we ate lunch the sun had burned off most of the marine layer and we were warm in no time. We people watched, visited all the vendors, and enjoyed the atmosphere the strawberry festival brings. Here are some pics from our adventure. Giving Steve a high five while she goes around. Crazy woman. She has no fear! Like Grandpa, like granddaughter. I can't get her to take a picture either. I think they must have had a good time cause she was asleep by the time we reached the car.

Our trip back home; She's 95!

Just last weekend we had the opportunity to go back home for my grandmother's 95th Birthday! She is the sweetest little lady and the best Oma anyone could ask for. I am just glad she's stayed with us another year. Anyway here are some pictures from our trip. It was harder to get Dad and Uncle Larry to take a picture than it was for the kids. Mason had a special bond with Oma. He adored her. Brother, Steve, Oma and me. I love this one! Isn't she so cute! Oh yeah and you too brother. This is a dress Oma had made for me when I was a little girl. Oma forgot about it until she foundit one day and sent it to me for Honey. My dad can often be found around a fire. This is one he started from a big pile of brush he's cleared from the property. Mason is helping to keep it in one area, Grandpa showed him how to use the pitch fork. He's a hard worker. My kids had a great time up there, and didn't want to come home.

Honey's Birthday Party!

We had a neighborhood birthday bash for Honey (I can't believe she's 3 already!), and two other neighborhood kids that all turned 3 within months of each other, last Saturday. At a park in Solvang, Sunnyfields, we had a B-B-Q and cup cakes and presents for the three little three year olds. Wow, what fun they had. Honey's actual birthday isn't until the 26th of May but we celebrated a bit early to accommodate the other friends who turned 3 in March and in April. Thank you to all those who came and had a good time with us. To view the pictures at a closer view, click on the image.
