Summer Soccer Season

This is my 2nd season playing soccer and Daddy is our coach.  We had such a small team and since Daddy was the coach, Parker was able to join our team halfway through the season.  It is so much fun to play with the team and even better with my brother.  One game, we both scored goals.  I learned more soccer skills, the importance of perseverance, sportsmanship, and team spirit.  Maybe I'll be a big soccer star one day?

Happy, Healthy Lifestyle

So much changed this summer in our house.  Mommy and Daddy realized that we all need to eat healthy and live a healthier lifestyle.  Mommy started making as much food from scratch as she can.  We eat fresh baked bread, fresh baked cookies, fresh baked crackers, homemade tortillas, and she makes her own almond milk and oat milk.  Anything we want to buy at a store that is not a fruit or a vegetable, she makes herself.  She says she was tired of all the chemicals in our food and she wanted to ensure that we have as much whole food ingredients as possible.  Everything is whole wheat and whole grain.  I mostly like everything she is making.  Well, they took it a step further and now our entire diet is mostly plant based.  No more meat, no more dairy, except the fresh eggs we buy from a lady in our neighborhood that raises her own organic, non GMO fed chickens.  We started our own vegetable garden too.  We have planted cucumbers, red and yellow peppers, mint, sweet and thai basil, zucchini, radishes, carrots, onions, chives, and red and yellow tomatoes.  At first I was not happy that our diet would be mostly fruits and vegetables, but I am getting use to the idea and I really like that we are sparing precious animals lives, while encouraging good health for our family.

Summer Bowling

We want to soak in every last minute of summer so today we went bowling. Daddy killed it, Parker was in 2nd until the very end when I creeped in and quickly beat him. Mommy was dead last. Bowling is fun!

Summer Vacation - Omni Resort at Rancho Las Palmas

Always a great time at the Omni Resort at Rancho Las Palmas. We spent the entire time on the water slide and floating on the lazy river. We love this place and we can't wait until we come back next summer.

Beach Day at Pirate's Cove

We had several beach days this summer but a very important one was when my cousin's Joce and Grayson joined us. We went to Pirate's Cove and got to play in the natural wave pool. It is always a fun time when I'm with my cousins!

Adventure Playground

We spent the day at Adventure Playground in Irvine. Adventure Playground is a magical place where kids roam free, get dirty, build a life-size Lego fort, play life-size checkers and chess, and just be a kid. It was just another fun summer experience.
