Tour of CSU, Chico

My sister in law was accepted into Chico State two years ago. And since she moved so far away, every now and then we like to drive up and visit her. By the end of this year our oldest son Dean will be a sophomore and our Carlie Rae will be a Freshman in High School! Their interest in college has peaked since both of them have joined the AVID program at their High School. Driving up to Chico State was exciting for them because their Auntie Bri was going to give them a Campus tour:
My sister in law Briana was full of interesting facts and the kids were intrigued by each and every detail as if there was going to be a pop quiz at the end of the tour. 
Solin couldn't care any less about the campus tour. She liked watching the trees and squirrels that jumped out of every bush.
One of my favorite Myths about Chico State is their time capsules. There is an Urban Legend that a Volkswagen is buried under one of these time capsules^^^
The art installation in front of Ayres Hall has a unique perspective. We were informed that this is art for the Blind which gave us a different approach. 
We looked with our hands instead of our eyes...
There are nine bridges on Campus... which makes for some quirky humor that their mascot is a wildcat...
The library was my favorite Building. The archetectue was very defined and it created such a beautiful site!
After the campus tour we walk around Downtown Chico and I was on a mission to find Powell's Sweet Shoppe:
Last time we visited Powell's we were in Novato!
Solin is 11 months old now and since she is about to hit that one year old milestone... 
she knows how to throw a tantrum!
If she doesn't get her way^^^
While walking Downtown you can find beautiful wall murals around every corner ^^^ This was my favorite!

My Life #Instagrammed

Next month Solin will be ONE! It is very hard for me to put my mind around that. I was warned that her childhood would fly by, but I didn't want to believe it. Now I am just holding on to each and every precious moment like this one above^
^My best friend shared the love on Valentine's Day^
Valentine's Day is a favorite holiday for us and you can read about that HERE
We went to the Almond Blossom Festival and also took Solin's First Birthday photos. Here is a sneak peak HERE
Project 52 is in full effect HERE
On Presidents Day we went to Santa Cruz and had an amazing day in the sun.
^My friend Anh is having a baby girl and we celebrated her baby shower this past weekend and I was very surprised that Solin was eating broccoli. 
I chaperoned Carlie's Eighth Grade Dance and felt a little immature taking selfies with them. But they were the ones who were more embarrassed taking photos with a chaperone?
And the best for last^^^ This pizza is from VIP Pizza and is our new creation: Pineapples, Jalapenos, and BACON!!!

8 out of 52

"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week in 2015."


The last few Project 52 posts have only had Dean & Solin. Our little Carlie is a busy bee. So I wanted to devote this one to Ms. Carlie Rae. I snapped this photos recently when we drove out to the Almond Blossom Festival in Ripon, Ca. It was a small lil festival but we found our fair food and headed out before the weather was destructive!
Carlie had some creative answers to this question. Each and everyone was snarky and sarcastic of course.
