Cooper's photo shoot

My grandfather used Cooper in his marketing campaign this Fall. Here are some shots from the shoot.

Always with the golf club!

Pop, as we call him.

Miraval - August Part 2

Here are the beautiful grounds. I have to admit it takes awhile to get used to the landscape of Arizona but after you are there you really do appreciate it's beauty.
Mountains with pool in the foreground, taken from the Spa quiet room.
Thunder clouds rolled in a few times during our stay. It was great! We don't get much thunder/rain in California.

Miraval - August

In August, I got to go on a spectacular trip with my mother-in-law to Miraval in Tucson, Arizona. If you ever have a chance to go, you should do it. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. I hope to visit many many more times! Here I am on one of the challenge courses called "Swing and a Prayer".

I've been hoisted up and now all I have to do is let go for an awesome swing!
The equine experience was also great. It taught us about ourselves through the horses. Really powerful stuff!
Here we are! Loving our morning drinks from the coffee/smoothie bar!

Seattle Trip 2

We had a blast staying with our friends Ron and Kels in Seattle. We went out to a nice seafood restaurant on our last night and the food was amazing. I can still taste the parmesan crusted tilapia. Wish I had some more right about now! Here we are taming the Coop with the blackberry.

The beautiful views from Kels and Ron's house. We were in absolute heaven!
And Cooper loved that there was plenty of space to golf!

Dakota really wanted to go with us on our outing. She did NOT want to get out of the car. :(

Seattle Trip

We traveled to Seattle this summer to see our friends Courtney and Chris get married. We had such an awesome time with everyone. Here are some pics of the wedding night.
Love this little man!

The girls, Sam and Kels

Trip to Indiana

We had to take a sudden trip to Indiana as Chris' grandpa passed away. We made the most of it and saw lots of family and friends.
Here are all the cousins trying to get a decent picture -- you can tell it was difficult with 3 worms and a puppy!

First day of school

Cooper started school this summer -- he goes 2 days a week in the morning.
On our way to the his first day!

Wouldn't stand still for a good picture (the usual) but he was excited for school. He absolutely loves it and every day he doesn't want to come home.

Father's Day in San Francisco

They had huge bears at the SF Zoo that Cooper thought were pretty neat. Kind of like looking out our back yard. :)
These little guys were hilarious. They would come right up to the window and just stare at the little people.
Cooper didn't know quite qhat to think.
Dinner at the Rainforest Cafe was quite the experience. The animals and noises were a perfect end to our trip!

Father's Day San Francisco Trip

For Father's Day we took a trip to San Francisco. We checked out the zoo and Cooper loved all the animals.
Here he is checking out the monkeys.
They also had a train there that he LOVED. It actually went pretty fast and he wanted to go again when we got off.

Chris got to go to the US Open practice round this year at Pebble Beach and he had a blast. He took lots and lots of pictures but I won't post them all. Here are a few to take a look at.
