so since it was probably my last time visiting berkeley (ken and tris are moving and so am i), i took some pictures to commemorate how WELL this family functions in this big city!!!

Tristen take the kids to the local YMCA pretty regularly. Avery had ballet class there so she looked SO DANG CUTE in her little leotard and ballet slippers. Click on any of the pictures to make them larger :) (i have placed a few disclaimers throughout the blog so that no one has the opportunity to think that the family are anarchists.)

The kids played on the rock wall for hours! they love that thing. I really like this picture because it shows ken's true "daddy nature"... he's such a fun dad! totally interactive with the kids and everything. it's so fun to watch him play with them.

we haven't known penny for too long but she is already SO full of personality. She lets her older siblings carry her around even when it doesn't feel to comfortable (DISCLAIMER: this activity is HIGHLY supervised. tristen doesn't just let her kids trek about with this delicate cargo.)

avery was sitting on the fountain and had picked a flower and just looked TOO cute to pass up. it's so funny how when a camera comes out she starts a photo shoot! (ANOTHER DISCLAIMER: Avery picked the flower without her mom's permission. tristen also does not allow her children to strut about the bay area plucking foliage.)

tristen will KILL me when she discovers this picture on here but i HAD to point out how JEALOUS i am of how CUTE my sister in law looks in exercise clothes!!! when i wear exercise clothes, i look like the grim reaper. when she does, she looks like an athletic trainer. which parent's genes do i blame for that?? (final disclaimer: tristen is not generally the homocidal type but she is totally unaware of how stylish she looks when she gets ready to exercise.)

  1. The picking foliage thing made me laugh aloud, as the Hox passed my office door. The snort caused him to come into my office, which you know what happened after that. Staying afoot.
