Miyagishima BBQ

August 12, 2011
This was basically the second half of the Miyagishima family reunion. Tawny and Aaron's families didn't make it to Solvang, so we had a nice, big family BBQ at our house. It was great to watch the kids play and relax in the backyard. It was also perfect timing because it just happened to be Tom's birthday.

I'm not sure if Taryn was seriously injured, but I love this picture of Charlie.
She looks so dangerous. :)

The munchkins turned the kiddie pool into their very own hot tub.

Beemer giggled up a storm for Jenn. (We can't wait to see their baby girl.)


The girls got in the same dress up outfits they wore last year and Taryn learned how to gamble.
His Grandma Susan recently won big; maybe luck runs in the family.

Lagoon with the Sykes

August 11, 2011
Tawny and Susan were in town from OR, so we took the kids to Lagoon! We were lucky and one of my BFFs (Krissy) got to join us. This was the longest I've ever stayed at Lagoon with the two girls. We were really lucky and the lines were really short, and Bryn was easy to handle because Tawny, Susan, and I took turns. Thanks for the good times. I hope this is a new tradition. :)

A rare shot with Krissy, Hailey, and Mikade (left).

Maiki is really into buying things all by herself (at least she's generous).

The kids went on Bombora at least six times...

Susan sponsored some pretty impressive face painting. :)
