the menu

ben & kate are huge laker fans, so each table was a laker player/coach

local pies and cake pops rather than cake...delicious!

the s'mores were a hit with the kids and grown-ups alike

Benjamin & Kate are married! It took place on Sunday, May 29th at The Vine Hill House Estate in Sebastopol. Jason officiated the ceremony, which overlooked a vineyard. It has rained the day before and had been very cool, but the day of the wedding was a perfect 71*. It was such a special day! It was a blessing to be able to have our family be apart of Ben & Kate's first day as man & wife!

Jameson is 6!

Where did it go? The baby days of my firstborn son! Now he is 6 and about to be a kindergartener!
Such a happy boy! Always talking, full of questions, a witty sense of humor, sweet and gentle, yet rough and loud. Loves legos, chocolate(anything), The Wild Kratts, socializing, Macaroni & Cheese, Starwars, playing house and school with Meran & Sutton, singing & dancing for Bellen's amusement.
Jameson turned 6 yesterday and we celebrated with a Lego Starwars Party. 11 of his friends came to romp and play, eat macaroni & cheese and chocolate cake. Gave each boy a lightsaber (made from a pool noodle)...they could've played for hours!

happy 6th birthday my sweet jameson

in his element

patient big sister read each card to him

silly faces

could they have gotten any closer together?

James & Jameson

Jameson is named after my Papa, James. He is a man of whom there are no shortage of reasons to admire...
He is a hard worker.
He is a wonderful writer.
He is loving and not afraid to say it...especially when it comes to his grand & great grandchildren.
He is strong-both physically, emotionally & mentally.
He is wise.
He is funny.
He is gentle.
He can get fired up about things he is passionate about or if he feels there has been an injustice done.
He loved my Nanny (and still does, though she has gone ahead to be with the Lord 12 years now).
James & Jameson
The list goes on, and I named my first born son after him because of the admiration & love I feel for him. Happy 86th Birthday Papa!
