Tackle Football

In July, the boys decided to try out for tackle football. They have never played before so we weren't sure what to expect. RJ is afraid of getting hit and Braden is a safety hazard. Add to the mix that we told them we were going to miss the 1st week of practice for vacation, and the boys did not make the team. We will try again, maybe in middle school! Here are some pics with their best mean faces, this is important when wearing football attire, and some great action shots.

Back to School

Breakfast of Champions Ready to Go

Arrival Braden a little confused Sienna ready to go in (I wasn't welcome inside!) And RJ was off before I had a chance to say goodbye or even see what direction he went!!

Magic Mountain

I grew up only 45 minutes away from Magic Mountain so I went there often. I loved it when I was younger. Ryan took RJ & Braden there while we were at the beach last week. Honestly, I was thankful I didn't have to go!

Snack Time

Cousins A Little Bit Sick!


It was a fun trip that the boys, including Dad, are still talking about. Only one person actually puked, thankfully, not one of mine, and Ryan almost blacked out one ride. Good times.

Beach Vacation

Every year in August, the Pinney family gathers at Carpinteria Beach for one week of paradise. Every year, I am terrible at taking pictures, and every year I promise to get better, but it only gets worse. I tried to make up for it by taking a HUGE amount of pictures all in one day! RJ's favorite part of the beach is Grandpa Dave's metal detector... Sienna posing for the camera, like always.

RJ taking a leisurely swim on the boogie board in the freezing cold water.

Marissa, RJ, and Uncle Jim contemplating the freezing cold water, the cold day, and the long swim to the platform.
Conner & Dad
Conner loves being outside

Braden digging, like always
Conner has some sand in his teeth.
The DREADED birds! Every day, at least once, these birds would suddenly fly off the roof in unison and inevitably someone would get pooped on. Me, Braden, and Uncle Jim were all attacked at various times during the week. Word of advice, If you see the birds, find an umbrella!!
Braden and more digging

And there you have it, another wonderful year in Carpinteria, and not a single picture of me!!
