Wedding weekend in Napa- Part I

Wedding weekend in Napa- Part II

On March 22nd, my sister, Susannah, and her fiance, Tony, finally tied the knot in St. Helena, Napa Valley, CA. Grove officiated and their 4 daughters were the wedding party. It was a gorgeous wedding with perfect weather and in a perfect setting. We had a really wonderful time with both families! Congratulations to Susannah and Tony Macaluso- a match made in heaven! The best part is that Grove and I now have 6 adorable neices. Here are some photos from the rehearsal.....

One year anniversary with Pasha....

On March 23rd, we spent a gorgeous spring day in the garden of Wendy Johnson and her husband Peter, and on Muir Beach in California. It was Pasha's first glimpse of the ocean and the one year anniversary from the day we first met Pasha in Pavlodar, Kazakhstan. We've come a long way, baby!

Happy St. Paddy's!!!

Big snow at Vallecitos -Part I

lots and lots and lots of snow......

Big snow at Vallecitos Mountain Refuge

The ranch had more than 5 feet of snow....and Pasha loved it. He falls asleep on the snow mobile and loves walking and playing in the snow. We had a wonderful long weekend there. It was really gorgeous!

Very bad hair cut

In February, Mama took Pasha to get his hair cut at Great Clips (NEVER GO THERE!!!)...the result was a sort of shag-mullett. Truly, the worst hair cut we had ever seen. We told Pasha that he had a terrible hair cut, and he would shout back with excitement, "TEAR BULL, TEAR BULL !!"
