cheep cheep

It's baby chick time. We got to help Grandpa and Grandma pick out three new ones to join their little brood. Then we got to go see the 21 new baby chicks at Savanna, Sierra and Kaden's house. Not to mention their Gator, some dogs, geese, fish (in a bathtub) and a horse. Am I forgetting anything? The kids had so much fun playing together, I hope we can do it again soon. Thanks, Rosanne, for the yummy lunch and the band aids. : )

Amelia then had a salon, where anyone could be her "patient." : )

Tehachapi is a great place to fly a kite, Amelia had so much fun with her new princess kite from our friends Matt & ilona.

an eventful weekend

As per usual, we try to jam in as much celebration as possible in one weekend when the Adkins Family all join at once. The first of several reasons for this coming together was that Aunt Lindsay flew in from Sicily! She'll be here for about three weeks, leaving Uncle Gene to fend for himself overseas. Wish you were here Uncle Gene, we miss you! Uncle Nick celebrated a birthday last week, and of course, it was Mother's Day.

Lindsay enjoying some American espresso. : )

Thanks Grandpa & Grandma for the delicious dinner out.

New bathing suits from Sicily.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Mother's Day

ducks, dessert & dinner

When it was too quiet, I went to check on the kids and found this wonderful scene:

(if only that happened more often)

Watching a turtle go back in the water at the duck pond.

My friend Kari was back in town and her sister, April is a pastry/dessert chef at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Coast. So a few of us were able to go and get the royal treatment. April sent out a sample of every kind of dessert they have on their menu, and it was amazing. We had a four course dessert extravaganza and then we got to tour the kitchen and snagged a few more treats back there. It was so much fun!

Dinner out with Travis and Kim. ♥
