Grandpa’s 80th Birthday Party


Gavin Opening His Presents

Gavin was up bright and early for his 5th birthday. He was quite excited it was his birthday and that I took the day off to have fun with him.


Birthday Trip To The Zoo

Gavin wanted to see the polar bear for his birthday. We saw some other animals and bears while we were hiking to the back of the zoo where the polar bears live.


Birthday Party At La Bella’s

Gavin wanted to eat his favorite food, pizza, for his birthday. So we had everyone over to La Bella’s for pizza and games. Gavin discovered his love of air hockey. He also loved his Dodger birthday cake.


Jesse Jr’s 9th Birthday Party


Connor’s 3rd Birthday Party

Connor’s wish for a Plex robot birthday party came true.


Celebrating Mom’s Birthday

After spending a few days in the Seattle area, we headed back to my parent’s house in Beaverton, OR to celebrate my mom’s birthday. It was nice to get to have a family birthday with the moss covered Ladd clan up in the great Pacific Northwest.


Grandma’s 93rd Birthday

The Ladd clan celebrated the 93rd birthday of their matriarch, Marjorie Ladd, A.K.A. Grandma.

Unfortunately, my wife and boys had to head back down to San Diego before the party at P.F. Chang’s, because Gavin had school the next day. I got to stay in Bakersfield a few extra days because they needed me on-site at work.


Gavin’s 7th Birthday Party

Gavin has an early morning baseball game. Then we headed over to his Grandma and Grandpa Loera’s house for his 7th birthday party, complete with pizza and baseball piƱata.
