Surrounded by Girls

Monday, August 07, 2017


Congratulations to Melanie and the Poway Vaqueros Girls U13 team on winning their bracket in last weekend's 2017 Copa de Barcelona Cup. Four games, twelve goals scored, three clean sheets, and only one goal allowed all weekend. That's domination!

After several finals appearances without a win, it's nice to finally put our hands on the trophy.

Goofin' on Renoir

A recurring theme in our trip to Paris was the girls mimicking Renoir's paintings.




For good measure, and in the interest of fairness, we also took the time to goof on Rodin. In his own house, no less.

Here's the link to our full Paris trip photo album.

Enjoy, and merci!


Just back from Paris. What a trip! Museums, restaurants (cafes, brasseries, bakeries, etc.), ice cream from store front and cart, chateaus, monuments, and did I mention museums?

Here's a link to our Paris trip photo album. There are too many favorites to pick a couple for this post - though I may promote some as "needed".

Enjoy, and merci!

Kickin' It Challenge

Second verse, same as the first. Same tournament, same finals opponent, same disappointing outcome. Still a great (if hot) weekend, and no way I'd rather celebrate Father's Day.
