Happy Birthday darling Daddy!!

This was Jon's birthday week! We partied all week long! Highlights include:

Monday climbing at Indian Joe Caves in Sunol:
Jon, freshly equipped with his very own climbing gear, wanted to hike up to the Caves in Sunol and climb. Cami & Crew and Nana and Papa joined us--we had individually made identical plans for the day, so we thought we'd just meet up and play together. We all enjoyed exploring the caves around the formations and also taking a turn climbing up the 5.8 route. It was a blast!! 
Larry did great despite his nervousness...

I made it to the top!!!-- up the easier route...

Jon Belaying and offering advice to climber Ansel.

Strength, Beauty... 

And flexability all in one: Remi! 

Dawna is our climbing nut.  She loves being tied in and going up!

Beautiful Landscape

He made it to the top too!
 On Wednesday, we had our family dinner of tri-tip steak, sour dough bread, Jell-o, and of course, cheesecake for dessert!
We Love our new camera :) 

Opening presents! The kids all wanted to help!

Jade's favorite part was the wrapping!
After dinner and dessert, Nana and Papa came over to put the kids in bed while Jon and I went to City Beach to climb! We had an awesome evening out together and came home to an Immaculately clean kitchen! Birthday bonus from our babysitter!!

And today, after my first choir practice as the director, Jon and I sang through all the Easter songs I picked out. Dawna, apparently bored, drew a portrait of what was happening. Yes, Jade is scoot-crawling around and Yes, she LOVES the piano pedals! It's a strange fetish of hers, but she goes after piano pedals all the time! During Dawna's practice, while I'm teaching, and while we're practicing for Choir...  
In case you can't quite see, the caption reads "Mom sings and Dad sings and maybe Jade (the thing on the floor)"

Wow, that rock climbing looks like a ton of fun. Larry is so brave, I am glad he is enjoying it now! Jade is lookin' a lot thinner. She is so cute. Samuel referred to "Uncle Weston" today, and I thought that was so cute that he thinks Weston is his uncle too. Actually, Adele affirmed that "yes, it is Uncle Weston with the toy helicopter."
