Gordie Chessa and I found the most peaceful and beautiful place to watch the shuttle fly over us. It was sooooo cool! I loved spending that special moment with my awesome Gordie!
We passed by these flags (and lots of people) at Pepperdine.
No Shuttle just our view when waiting. Us and the surfers.

Chessa's 1st Birthday!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012


We have been having a nice week spending time with family!

Chuck's cousin Patrick was out visiting UCLA. We got to spend some good time playing around! Of course Chessa just loved him, and vise versa :-) Gordie and Patrick played with his bike, played hide and seek, and had lots of fun together. Gordie even tested Patrick's reflexes as he jumped off the back of the sofa yelling "catch me!" Patrick passed then test! Oh and guess who is almost ONE?! WE also spend a nice morning with the Lappenga's and Bill and Joan Bonnema. Chessa hung out with Bill and Annemeika. And Amelia and Gordie were adorable of course!

This is the post from our last trip to Tucson. Although we saw Grandpa, or Great Gordon as the kids like to call him, since then, this visit was so wonderful!! Gordie climbed on him constantly and we all treasured every moment!

Grandpa will be missed so much! But I thank God for all of the beautiful memories. And now I will have to find a new "scieneer" to help guide me in answering all of Gordie's "how does this work" questions.
