Fun Times With My Family

I’ve been traveling quite a bit lately, so when I’m home and off on the weekends I do my best to spend time with my family. Here are a few things we’ve done over the past few weeks.

We got to go to Ridgecrest to visit some family. Unfortunately, the visit was prompted by some bad news, but we made the best of the time we had up there!

Family Dinner
Family dinner…all 13 of us! We were missing two nephews and one niece…

On another weekend shortly thereafter, we had a bonfire and smores in our backyard. It was so nice to just sit back and relax and enjoy my family!

Michael and Orion were cuddling! We have cuddly animals!

A couple of weekends later the kids (minus Cathy because she wanted to look for a job instead – good for her!) and I went for a hike in Hemet, CA behind the Ramona Bowl Amphitheater. The view was breathtaking!

This last weekend we went up to Idyllwild to go out to lunch and then on a hike and we were pleasantly surprised with snow!!

I’m not sure what Cathy was doing…possibly getting out of the way of incoming snowballs.

My handsome Chaz…I had to lighten the picture so he can be seen…I think I was in the sun and he was in the shade, which made it too dark to see.
