Beach Day - Ramos Family 2011

It's a good thing Brenna and her family still live close to an ocean!  They all love the water so much!  It was a great day in North Carolina!

Melanie and Hula

These photos are from one of Melanie's performances last year, June 2011.  Before the yearly show, the groups would go to area Hawaiian festivals and perform.  It was always a great day.

Melanie's Favorite Restaurant

Melanie's favorite Mexican restaurant is El Ranchero in Claremont.   After a hard session of trick or treating, we headed over there for an early dinner.  She is one lucky little girl (or maybe we are the lucky ones), Miguel always gives her a serving of her favorite dessert.  She is always willing to share some of it with those at the table.

Splash Zone

What great fun my grandchildren had on our summer vacation in 2011!  They enjoyed swimming every day either in the pirate pool or in the ocean in Maui!  It was wonderful for me and Roy to share in their enjoyment.  You sometimes forget how the simple things, like digging in the sand, going down a slide and having sand in your suit make your summer vacation the best.

Scrapbook Expo Classes

I have been inspired by attending workshops at the Scrapbook Expo this past weekend in Anaheim! Here are a few examples of pages I created in some of the workshops.

The first two pages are titled "Simple Joys", the pictures I used were from our family vacation to Maui last July 2011.  I enjoyed the time we spent at the pools and beaches.  What a joy it was to be there together as a family! 

The next set is titled "Enjoy the Little Things" and we did!   Shopping at the Maui Swap Meet, hanging out at and on the Banyan Tree and Little Rudy enjoying the pirate ship at the resort! 

And, finally "Unforgettable Moments"........a beautiful Maui sunset and in the photo are Michael, Melanie and Isabel.  The next one is Heather with her most favorites nieces!   The great colors of the papers worked so well with my photos!  My goal for this year is to finish the photos from 2011!
