Grandma Ladd’s 90th Birthday Party


Ringling Bros. Circus

We took the boys to go see the circus. Connor slept most of the time but Gavin really enjoyed it.


Our Little Dodger Fans


Big Trees

We took the boys to Sequoia to see the General Grant Tree and Hume Lake. It is unbelievably beautiful in the forest surrounded by the giant trees. Gavin loves the “big trees” and asks to go see them almost everyday. Every time we go it is so hard to leave.


Kern County Fair


Jesse Jr’s 7th Birthday Party

The Loera clan and friends got together to celebrate Jesse Jr’s 7th birthday. Yes, that is a full sized jungle gym in his backyard. Jesse Sr salvaged it from a construction job… what lucky kids!


Tortilla Maker

Grandpa Eddie showing Gavin the fine art of how to make fresh flour tortillas.


On Top Of Beetle Rock

Pictures from on top of Beetle Rock in Sequoia National Park. The view is beautiful from way up on top of the mountains. I can only imagine how far you could have seen before the Central Valley air got so polluted.


Aquarium Of The Pacific

A large portion of the Loera clan headed to Long Beach to celebrate Eddie’s birthday. He wanted to check out the Aquarium Of The Pacific with all of his grandkids. Marco and Cesar couldn’t make it but the rest of the grandkids were there and had a great time.
