New Home - February 2011

C.J., Olivia, and Caleb bought this home and moved in in February 2011. Already C.J. is making modifications, but they sure have a cute start.

The backyard has a covered party area and even a Jacuzzi in the far corner - just the thing for having family and friends over.

It is Caleb's 1st birthday party and everyone is having fun, especially his proud parents - C.J. and Olivia.

We were there as grandparents, but this was his day and all the pictures are of him.

Of course Caleb had the most fun - playing in the tomato patch in the back yard and eating his first cupcake.

Moving to Napa, CA from Palm Springs

C.J. accepted a job in Northern California and they were both overjoyed to move to the cooler, more lush country around Napa, CA. They have all settled in quickly and easily to the pace and style of living there.

Of course, now they have members of the family always wanting to visit them so they cherish the time they have for just the three of them. Caleb is starting to walk and his grandparents got to see his early steps via their Skype connection with the couple.

Here we see C.J. and his brother-in-law Graham checking out the fine points of digital camera zoom lenses. This certainly isn't desert country.

Caleb was born September 14, 2009 in his home in Cathedral City, CA. Here you see him being adjusted by the midwife who attended Olivia.

The next day grandpa and grandma - gee that sounds so really old - got to hold their first grandchild.

Vacation in Honduras

In 2007 C.J. and Olivia vacationed in Honduras. These pictures give you a flavor of just how relaxing that vacation was, but if you want to see more pictures, click here or on the pictures.

Hiking in Cathedral Canyon

Danielle visited C.J. and Olivia in 2007 and they took her hiking on their favorite local trail - up Cathedral Canyon.

The canyon gradually gets narrower and narrower and you can see C.J. holding a ladder for Danielle as she climbs the side - I don't know why?!

1st home in Palm Springs, CA

When C.J.'s job with the state offered a promotion to their offices in Palm Springs, Olivia reluctantly went along. The way was smoothed by this first house on the slope above Cathedral City.

All homes are fully airconditioned and landscaping has a decidedly desert look. Here you can see a bit of the view of the valley - around the desert foliage - and also Patty following C.J. around her car. This was taken before Olivia moved down from Davis, CA.

C.J. marries Olivia Ervin

The wedding was at Shinneyboo Creek Cabin Resort, near Lake Tahoe, CA, on September 30, 2006. It was an entire weekend affair and there were organized things to do from Thursday through Sunday (the wedding was Saturday). If you click on the picture you will go to the wedding part of their website and there are lots of pictures.

C.J. and Olivia's families got to celebrate the first marriage in either family. The weekend put a difficult bar for other siblings to reach.

Since they both met in Lake Tahoe and they both positively love the outdoors, this was certainly the type of wedding they really wanted. They even had a streaker make an appearance. No, we don't have any picture of that event.

What a weekend!

The engagement

The ring's the thing - that's what all the women say. Well, Olivia is a modern woman, but boy was she happy to show off her ring.

Shortly after C.J. asked Olivia to marry him, Craig travelled to Davis, CA to visit them. He was proud of his son and happy to walk to their farmers market nearby on the weekend.

all the kids

In June 2006 C.J. and Olivia met for the last time with grandmother Mary Cary. She was undergoing radiation treatment for throat cancer and also suffering more and more from Alzheimer's. She beat the cancer, but three months later moved to a managed care home, where she remained until her death 23 June 2009 at 91 years of age.

This was about the time C.J. and Olivia got together with his sister's Julie and Danielle during an engagement party in Newport Beach, CA.
