Circus and Pioneer Day

Today was a big day for us!  First we went to the Circus!  Then we went to a great lunch at a restaurant in Downtown called "Rodeo" then we went to Pioneer Day BBQ at Hart Park.  
What a fun time we had!

The Beach House!

The Fusano's invited us to spend four days with them at their beach house with two other families, the Reese's and the Nelson's.  We had a blast!  We went to the beach three days in a row, and played hard all day!  The house was in the Oxnard Harbor and there were boats there for us to use so we took boat rides. There were tons of kids, tons of food, and tons of fun in the sun!  We were all tired when we got home, but it was worth it.  Thanks Fusano's we had a blast!

Nathan Surfing! (well riding the waves on a surf board)

Happy Fourth!

Happy Fourth of July!  

We started our day at our church for a Pancake Breakfast and a beautiful Patriotic Slide Show!

After Breakfast we "beat the heat" and took the girls to see Kit Kittridge!  (cute movie by the way!)
Then it was off to the Races for us!  We went to a Nascar Race at the Irwindale Speedway!  We had a great time with our friends, the Reese, Nelsons and Fusanos!  Gorgeous fireworks show too!
