Aliciana and I took the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island. Next we drove up the 305 to Poulsbo and then down the 3 to the 16 and into Tacoma. Click here for a pretty map.

We ate dinner at the Spaghetti Factory in Tacoma, but I wouldn’t recommend it because the service sucked. Go to the Spaghetti Factory in Seattle instead.


Three friends from Bakersfield, Jialan, Connie, and Rosalva, happened to be in Las Vegas for the weekend so we met up with them for lunch. Later that evening, at dinner, AJ decided to pose for some pictures.


Some pictures of my new brother and sister. AJ and Michaela, the dogs, and grandma. It is hard to believe that I have a 1 year old brother and a 4 month old sister.


More Ladd Family 2.0 pictures. The cute 6 year old wearing pink in the photos is Juanita, a foster child staying with my parents for a while. Along with Aliciana and me, my parents house contained Juanita, AJ, Michaela, Grandma, my mom, my dad, my sister Courtney, the 2 dogs, and Molly the cat. It was quite a zoo.

The kids love taking pictures.

Happy 30th Wedding Anniversary Mom & Dad!!! We celebrated the day with family and friends with a party at home. It was a beautiful day for an outdoor party. And it was great to see and spend time with people that I have not seen in a while.

Day after the big party. Wow, were we all tired. We spent the day laying around.

Kristel and I were brave enough to take the four older boys to the San Diego Zoo. This was Marco and Cesar’s first time to the zoo. We all had a fun time and I enjoyed spending time with my nephews.
