Here is WEEK 38 of our "Photo a Day" project. This week was all about the PARTY. Gene will be 45 while his twin brother Jack turns 70 on October 2, 2009. I know the PARTY was two weeks early but this was the only weekend we had open. More than 60 of our water and snow ski friends, family, neighbors and childhood buddies helped celebrate. One guest even arrived in San Diego on an F-18. Cool. The first guest arrived early at 1:30 PM and the last one left at 1:30 AM. We had a blast.

Week Thirty-Seven: Photo A Day 2009

Here is WEEK 37 of our "Photo a Day" project. Another water ski trip to the river. Saturday at the river was wonderful. Wow, what a difference a week makes. Now that the kids are back in school, the boat traffic was significantly less. This was the Griffin’s last trip of the season. Laura has a new wake board.

We had happy hour at the river's edge and then dined there as the sun set. It was really nice, then it turned hot, then it got a bit windy, and then it was really blowing. While the wind calmed a bit, it never went away. Sunday we went up river looking for better water and found none. The return trip to camp was pretty wet. We found the best water for wake boarding down river.

Now we are getting ready for Gene's 45th Birthday Party. Yes, he is getting younger.

Week Thirty-Six: Photo A Day 2009

Here is WEEK 36 of our "Photo a Day" project. It was pretty much a party week starting with the ants. Gene seems to forget that every year when it gets hot the ants join us inside. They are everywhere, not just where the food is. The ants drive him nuts. We had our first and hopefully last yard sale. Too much work and aggravation for too little money. Then there was a neighborhood bash, Fay's BBQ and my birthday. Now we are off for some water skiing.Flower from Digi Scrap Booking Boutique's “Carmen.” Ribbon by Digi-Designs by Nicole's "Family Ties."

Week Thirty-Five: Photo A Day 2009

Here is WEEK 35 of our "Photo a Day" project. A very hot week. We are worried about fires in LA as it's kind of early in the year for these fires. I think October is going to be brutal. Gene has worked hard to keep the brush away from the house. So hopefully we will be fire free.

It was fun week. We FINALLY got new couches and tables for our family room. It looks so cool. Gene has been cleaning the carpets to get ready for his birthday party. Meanwhile, we escaped a couple of days to go bike riding and watch the Padres win. But it's still hot.
