2, 4, 6 (8) who's birthdays do we celebrate?

Julia, Eliza, and Israel of course. We've had a happy week of birthday adventures and even a big ol' road trip to add to the mix. We did all the presents of Monday of Julia's birthday. Israel was going to wait until his birthday, but watching the girls open theirs and knowing he could too was too much to resist:) It was easier that carting presents up to Sacramento, that's for sure. We went with Stan to the AAMFT Annual Conference. We stayed at a hotel with a pool and spent a lot of time in it. We also enjoyed the continental breakfasts. We ate and ate.
I'll let the pictures tell the rest.

see the snow in Stan's hair. Israel was very excited that it snowed on his birthday!
I had to sneak in a picture of my roses. I just love these ones. They're in the front yard. See the yellow center? And the smell- it would be worth a car ride.

Wow, they grow up so fast! Happy Birthday (s)! Congratulations on your big kids! And, I love Sequoia. My family camped there several times when I was younger, and I have fond memories of big trees, bears, and hiking.
