Army Corp SPK Picnic 2011

The year Jaime district picnic was in Rocklin, CA inside Johnson Springfield Park. It was nice because we did not have to drive so far. Jaime invited his parents up this year and everyone seemed to have a good time. They have fun things for the kids to do and also games for the adults. I was disappoint that we did not participate in any events this year. But i was happy that we got to see many faces of the Corps, that we have not seen in a while. Until next year.

Fathers Day 2011

This year for Father's Day Jaime was working nights at the Lake. Since my own dad was visiting, we took the BBQ out to Jaime. It was really nice. First we BBQ New York steak, green beans, and garlic bread the the BBQ. Then Jaime took us all up lake for a boat ride. The water was still spilling and the Lake was really high. My dad enjoyed seeing the lake full.

Englebright Lake Camping

Christopher was gone for a couple of days so Jaime and i wanted to try out all our new backpacking and camping gear. We parked at Bridgeport State Parks and hike alittle over 1 mile to Point Defence campground at Englebright Lake where Jaime currently works. We took Ginger, but I'm sure glad we did not have Chris. It was very hot even though we took off in the morning. Not sure how it would have went with all 4 of us. But the over night trip was well worth the time and effort we put into it.

Some highlights of our trip were......
Ginger got her first swim lesson, even though she did not want them. She almost seemed to like it.
Jaime and i played card and dice games.... We also drank alittle to much Port, Jaime had to walk and get us a bottle of Jager LOL
The Bookholtz showed up right before dinner, and greeted us with heat and happiness


Gauche Aquatic Park
The closes thing we have to a water park. But it is a wonderful place. I wish we would have been able to spend more time there. But we were either to busy or Christopher was gone/sick. Hopefully next summer we can get a pass.

Bell Carter Picnic 2011

Bell Carter Olive Company
Summer Picnic 2011
My mother works at Bell Carter and every year they have a picnic for your family. I have never been able to go. Last year Christopher had a great time. The year it was at Woodson Bridge in Corning. They had carnival games, bounce houses, bubble stations, and even a water slide. It is pretty that the have all the food too and even some cold treats like ice cream. I wish the weather had been a little warmer but we couldn't complain because the day was really wonderful.

Nike Women's Festival

On June 5, 2011 i ran in the "Women's Fitness Festival" it was held in Sacramento at the State Capital. It was truly amazing to see so many women come out and support each other. Whether it was their first race or their 100th race. That morning when i left home it was pouring down rain. As i drove up 70 the rain tapered off. When i reached the State Capital is started to raining again. I figured rain or shine i would run. All the money raised went to a organized called WEAVE....
