Crest Halloween Carnival

We decided to check out the carnival at Crest Elementary School this year. We knew Corbin would have fun especially after seeing how much fun he had at the Harvest Festival earlier in the week. He loved the games, the cake walk and even the haunted house. Corbin also won a cake on the cake […]


We have been loving our monthly Zoo field trips. This month focused on Meerkats. We joined other mommies at the exit of the Zoo and once everyone arrived we started walking over to the Meerkats over by Elephant Odyssey. Before we arrived, we made a detour and stopped at a behind the scenes location where […]

The Maize

Luke and I have fond memories of Seattle. One of the fun things we did while we vacationed in Seattle was visiting a pumpkin patch and took our first corn maize adventure together. We haven’t been able to make it back to Seattle since, but we have been able to recreate those memories by finding […]

Shiras Family Photo 2010

You’d think because we’re always taking pictures of our kids and other families that we’d have lots of family photos of ourselves and that’s just not the case. I have tons of the kids, but not us. I was just telling my husband that we’ve been to two weddings recently and have forgotten to take […]

D&S Family Photos

I had the pleasure of taking D&S family photos on Friday at Old Poway Park. It really is a great park because it has so many options for fun outdoor photos. Here are a few from out session.

Fall Festival

My friend, Kathleen, invited us to her son’s school fall festival. He attends Heartland Christian Homeschool Center in Spring Valley. Corbin loved dressing up as a pirate and especially loved playing games to win chocolate. He even won cookies on the cake walk. So fun!

Benjamin […]

Kinley Wedding

I have had so much fun these last few days because I’ve been able to see the fruits of my labor. I’ve been helping Susan plan, coordinate & create her wedding for the past four months and Sunday was the big day. What a beautiful wedding it was! Saturday = rehearsal. God had been teasing […]

Crest Fire Department

Crest Fire Department had an open house on Saturday. I knew Corbin would love it and I was right. He was all smiles and couldn’t get enough. The firemen were super cool and let him play in the trucks for a long time and took us on a tour of the facility too. Good times!
