 I love Yosemite. It's truly a magical place and leaves you in awe.
Here we are on a bridge over the Merced river infront of Yosemite Falls. 
Isa didn't seem that impressed with the waterfall.  She was more interested in throwing rocks in the river.
Here we are at Mirror Lake at the base of Half Dome.  Its only a mile hike, but with Isa picking up every stick and pine cone it took us a long time getting there.

Summer Is Here! Boogie Boarding with Naomi

Summer is here! And when your with your cousins its always more magical
Isa and her cousin Naomi loved being pulled around by Mike on the boogie board
Isa bailed a couple of times and was completely under the water one time and didn't even cry.
  She is a tough cookie.  She is not even phased by the cold water.

2013 Easter Week End

If the video above isn't working try this one.

2013 Easter in Santa Cruz was a success. We had some friends I knew from BYU (Ajay and Angie) come down from San Francisco.  It was so fun watching their daughter, June push Isa in the doll stroller crashing into everything.
 We started Friday with a B-Day Bowling Fest to celebrate me turning the big Three-Five. Despite me barely breaking 100 both games it was so fun to act like a little kid with all your friends.
On Saturday the weather was a little wet, but by the time the Easter Egg Hunt started at the Kasper's it was clearing up.  Later that day we went down to Wilder State Beach for a little beach football and a classic game of running away from the waves as we pretend the ocean is hot lava.

Easter Sunday was so fun watching Isa following the trail of eggs that the Easter Bunny left, guiding her to her Easter basket.
Isa and Laila are growing up so fast. Laila is a 2 month-old sweet potato always smiling and giggling. She is sleeping well and eating great. Isa is little firecracker.  She's non-stop always wanting to go to the beach, go on walks to the church, or go on bike rides.
