New 'do!!

I did it! Today I chopped off about 14 inches or so of hair to donate to Locks of Love. It was fun, and I was glad to get rid of my heavy head of hair. Now my head feels light and fluffy! I'd been growing my hair out for 4 years, since our wedding when it was just above my shoulders.
Here's the photo documentation!

Gigi's first camping trip

Gianna went camping for the first time last weekend! We met up with Yaya & Papa up at Bass Lake, where we camped for the weekend with good family friends the Nances & Hunns too. Gigi went on her first boat ride- she liked the movement of the boat, but was not such a big fan of the too-big life vest- and she also slept in a tent! Gigi got lots of love from her grandparents and psuedo-aunt Emily & -auntie-grandma Lynn!Then we drove to Pismo Beach, where David spent one night with us, and then Gigi & I stayed with my parents for a few more days when he had to go home to go back to work. When we were there, we saw a few of our SLO friends, the Squareburgers, the Spencers, the Sorbellos & the Reys, and we also spent time with family friends, the Merandis and the Churneys. Gigi got to meet another boyfriend, Ryan Merandi, who is exactly 1 month younger than her and almost the same size! They had a fun play date under Ryan's jungle gym together, kicking their legs and farting away.
It was especially fun for me to hang out with the Merandis at Pismo Coast Village, which is where we met them many years ago.
Here's the photo set from our trip:

Gigi is 3 months old!

Here is a cute pic of Gigi in the boppy at 3 months. For those of you wondering if she inherited the "Bennett Butt," you'll like her onesie- it says "Does this diaper make my butt look big?"
At her 3-month doctors' appointment she weighed in at 11 pounds, 9 ounces, and thankfully she only had to get one shot!!This second photo is Gigi at San Onofre. Last Friday we had a fun day at the beach, taking turns surfing (the waves were super fun). Gigi slept most of the time, like she usually does at the beach. We're off to Bass Lake this evening to meet up with my family and some friends. It will be Gianna's first camping trip!

Colorado Pics

We had a great time in Colorado on our house-hunting trip. Here are the photos:

Our Future Home

So, this is our house that we will be living in when we move to Colorado. It's in Highlands Ranch, which is about a half-hour south of Denver (near Littleton). We leave September 8th, and make the drive out to Colorado. We are starting to get excited, especially after finding a house to rent. This place is such an amazing value, compared to California prices!!
Thankfully, we know a few people that will be close-by in Colorado, including David's aunt Annette, and our friends the Stopniks and the Thompsons. We will have plenty of room for guests, so start planning your ski trips, people! :)
