This is everyone who went to the opera with us. We met up with Marcelo and Candy there. Posted by Picasa















Us. Amy, Lance, Emily, Dallas, soon to be opera elitists. Posted by Picasa




















Here we are before the opera, La Traviata. It was in the LA Operahouse in downtown Los Angeles. We were slightly overdressed compared to the rest of the people there (some people were in jeans), but the building was sophisticated enough and it was fun because we never get to dress up. The opera was great, one of our favorite parts of the trip! Posted by Picasa

My sweetheart after a long day. Posted by Picasa




















Sophie and Daddy at Bearlake. Sadly this is the only picture I took. I will have to get some from my mom. Sophie and Daddy had a blast on the beach, except the part when Sophie tried to eat a seashell. Luckily she didn't swallow any. Bearlake was a great. We saw a lot of cousins and both girls got a ton of attention, especially from Erin's kids. Sophie now thinks that any little boy is her cousin Mason. Posted by Picasa















Crazy hair... Posted by Picasa















Sophie and Mommy-Pooh getting ready for some breakfast. She always finds some friend to eat with. She usually shares a few bites too. Posted by Picasa















Sophie loves snuggling with Daddy! She is very willing to share her favorite blankies with him. (We still can't convince her to share them with her sister, though.) Posted by Picasa




















Sophie tried out some big girl panties. She did pretty good and went on the potty once, but also had an accident. Hopefully she will be potty-trained before the new baby!! Posted by Picasa
