Happy Birthday! Since the day you were born, you have been a gift to me.  I have watched you grow from a sweet, cute Ariel loving little girl to a beautiful, compassionate, gentle spirited, loving and faithful young woman.  I have been blessed to know you. You are a gift to me, Uncle Michael, Jack, Sammy and Katie Mei. We LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!  Cannot wait to share a panini with you at the Beach Bar- maybe some pesto too. : )

Camp Markmiller

What an absolute delight my niece Carson is.  Since her camp got postponed because of fires, she came over for Camp Markmiller!  We have had an awesome time- complete with a trip to Chuck. E. you know where, crafts, guitar hero and spaghetti for dinner- a trip to the beach with Dad to boogie board and S'mores.  And for now, they are headed off to the back yard to camp out in the tent and be surrounded by Tiki Torches a'la Michael.  : )  Fun Day!!
