Back from Vacation!!!

We just got back from our last big summer vacation. Geez, where did the summer go?? My hubby starts work next week and the kids go back to school in 2 weeks. We had a fabulous time visiting my mom and family this past week. The kids loved staying with their Baki (that's grandma for all you non-native polish speakers). We went to Smith Farms for some fresh produce...

...the community swimming pool for some chicken fights...

...and to AT&T Park for a Giants/Dodgers game where the kids got to run around the bases after the game was over!!

Here is Kevin's favorite player, #16 Andre Ethier. I had fun taking pics with my zoom lens!

We also went Geocaching. Which consists of a GPS device and coordinates to a treasure. You then have to find you way to the treasure. My BIL showed Kevin how to navigate with the GPS and yes...we found the treasure!

We also went White Water Rafting on the Middle Fork of the American River with my sister and BIL. We navigated Class IV rapids with names such as Cold Cup of Coffee, Last Chance, Tunnel Chute, Chunder, Parallel Parking, and 3 Queens. FANTASTIC time! I just ordered photos off the web so stay tuned for those!

And a huge big thanks to Baki who we stayed with and had fun with the kids while we were rafting!!! We love you!!!
