Walking, Talking, Clapping and Singing

This is what we have been up to lately. Dani started walking (no longer just taking steps) early last week. Such a joy to see. We can't get over how she has changed over night. My back is seriously messed up now. Oh man! We spent a long weekend in Lake Tahoe at a beautiful house we rent every year. We enjoyed several days of nice weather and then a snowstorm came in which was awesome because Dani got to see the snow and play in the snow for the first time. She absolutely loved it. We are terrible and had no camera to capture the moment. My brother caught a few pics on his cell phone so hopefully we can figure out how to retrieve those LOL We are not so technically minded around here. Daniela is now running all over the place while talking, shouting, clapping and singing. She is so much fun right now. We got to snowboard for the first time this winter in fresh powder which was a blast. Tyler learned to snowboard and is now after two short days better than me. are kids so freaking good at this stuff. It was so fun to see him out there on the board. He has been skiing for several years but we decided we would let him try snowboarding this year. He LOVED it. Here are a few pics of Dani tonight. T was at basketball practice with Steve.

Fun in the Sun

Lately we have been having some really nice spring weather. No more being cooped up. We have been in the yard and at the park almost every day. It's been wonderful. Dani finally got to try out the little gym in our backyard. She loves it as you can see. We also tried out the sandbox at the park after a hiatus from sand. The last few experiences involved eating more sand than playing so we took a break for awhile. This time she tasted it and realized it wasn't very yummy. we can play in the sand again! Today is Steve's birthday so tonight we will go with Grandma and Nana and Papa to dinner at Nijo Castle (think Benihanas, Shogun) hmmmm I am getting hungry already. Tommorrow we have a sitter and I have something fun planned for hubby. Photos to come. For now here are some pics of kiddos...

Some wine with our whine! Mom's night in with the kiddos. My friend Tammy and I having a grand time.

Live from Cali it's Saturday Night!

We had such a fun day today. Steve took Tyler to play golf and Dani and I went to the park with our friends Jen and her daughter Sydney. Sydney is only 11 months but she is already walking. Dani is so intrigued and is trying so hard to walk around Sydney. She is now able to take 7-10 steps at a time. We all went to dinner at Chevy's tonight and the girls ate cheese quesadillas. Dani loves Chevys. It's not exactly good Mexican food but a good family restaurant. Plus, I don't mind their margaritas! LOL

When we got home we goofed around with the camera. Steve as usual refused his picture and preferred to stay behind the camera.

Oh...and to all my blog pals. Please tell me how to get in on the SBP. I would love to be someone's SBP and it wouldn't be bad to be on the receiving end either :-) I saw the same question on Savannah's mommies blog but there was nowhere to leave comments.

Ciao and have a good weekend!
