Visiting Redding California

Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment »

Mommy, Teresa & Cierra decided that it was a great idea to drive all the way down to Redding California for Cierra’s mid-winter break. I could tell that mommy was a bit stressed about the whole idea of driving 13 hours with me but I surprised her and I was GREAT! We broke the trip up and stayed at grandma Mina’s house the first night (Sat Feb 13th)…she took us out to a great Mexican dinner and Cierra got to explore the basement. Thanks grandma for letting all of us stay, we always love to see you!


The next day we were off for our long adventure to Redding. On the way we stopped to see Great Uncle Dick (pictures are on post before) in Albany, he told us some fun family history. The best part was getting to meet him for the first time, I sure do love him! After Uncle Dick’s house we were off for real…the whole trip took us 10 hours and I was only awake the last 2 hours, except of course when mommy fed me. Oh yea, I must mention, Cierra was great to travel with, she figured out the secret to making me sleep and she took care of me the whole time. Thanks Cierra, you were a super help to my mommy, she couldn’t have done it without you!


Mommy was kind of lazy this trip and didn’t take many pictures, but here are the few that she did take.

Auntie Linda (Teresa’s Mom) gave me a bath and enjoyed every minute of it! Then she went and lotioned me all up and I screamed at her the whole time…sorry for wrecking that part Auntie Linda…I was SUPER tired!



A visit with Uncle Bob (Rob’s dad)…I think he was checking out how long mommy let my nails get, they were my weapons for awhile…don’t mess with me!


IMG_4047 Auntie Sherry (Rob’s mom) got lots of snuggle time in with me the second time we went to visit at their house. Thanks so much for the yummy dinner you made my mommy, Teresa & Ceirra!


Grandpa Herb (Teresa’s grandpa) was super fun to play with, he made me laugh a lot! He even held me but mommy didn’t get a picture of it because I was overtired and I started to scream on him. He promptly gave me back to mommy after that.



This is grandma Fay (Teresa’s grandma) she is super sweet and we loved to hang out with her. She made everyone lunch, had tea time with the girls and even helped Auntie Teresa cut off all the feet on my jammies and sew them up. Thanks so much for the visit, we sure enjoyed your company!



This is Grandma Pony (Rob’s grandma) she is 92 years old. I enjoyed eating her sunglasses and she even let me gobber them all up. I’m glad that I got to spend some time with her and that she was able to hold me. Mommy told Auntie Teresa that Grandma Pony was the most important to go visit and that was the only way she would do the trip.


Cierra was getting riding lessons from the lady next door, she was looking pretty good!




This is Cierra’s grandma Corky (David’s mom – Cierra’s biological dad), she hasn’t seen her in awhile and it was a great visit.


Auntie Linda on the last night we stayed at their house, she gave me the most fabulous foot rubs, as you can see I’m enjoying it a whole lot! I wish she lived closer so she could do that every night!




Jen playing with Addison, they were having a great time, I can’t wait for mommy and daddy to be able to play with me this way!


Addison was as tired as I was, she sure was cute though! She really wanted to play with me and liked to pet me.


Auntie Linda’s stray chicken…it has taken up residence under the porch.


We stopped in Weed, CA on the way home for some gas, Mt. Shasta is behind Auntie Teresa and I.


My future’s so bright…I gotta wear shades…


Thanks everyone for the visit, we enjoyed it so much and can’t wait to do it again.

My Great Great Uncle

This is my mommy’s Great Uncle on her daddy’s side, his name is Richard ‘Dick’ Milligan and he lives in Albany, OR. We decided to go for a visit as we passed through on our way to Redding California. My Great Great Uncle is our family historian and he knows everything! Did you know that I have ancestors that came to the US on the Mayflower?


His name was Governor William Bradford. Here is some neat information on him:

William Bradford (March 19, 1590 – May 9, 1657) was an English leader of the Separatist settlers of the Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts, and was elected thirty times to be the Governor after John Carver died. He was the second signer and primary architect of the Mayflower Compact in Provincetown Harbor. His journal (1620–47), was published as Of Plymouth Plantation. Bradford is credited as the first to proclaim what popular American culture now views as the first Thanksgiving.


If only you knew all my cool family history, I can’t wait until I get older and can read all the books that Uncle Dick has given to my mommy!


Thanks for the visit Uncle Dick, we sure do love you tons!

No more cast!

Effective today, February 1st, 2010, I will begin training for the U.S. Olympic snowboarding team!  The Doctors said my final casting went perfectly, and now I have these totally radical new shoes and brace.  I get to wear this all day, every day, for three months.  Then I will only wear it at night and nap-times for the next four years.  Won’t be too bad!



Look for me at the 2030 Olympics!
