We went out for our annual family picture at a park in Irvine.  khare-blog-004khare-blog-003khare-blog-0071khare-blog-006

Its getting harder and harder each year to get them up for a picture.  Here’s their “serious” pose.

We hosted Thanksgiving Dinner at our house for the first time in many years.  The Oak family came down to visit.

Here’s the gang enjoying dinner.

We rented the farm table from Classic Party Rentals big enough to seat all of us comfortably!

Annika had a race last weekend in Fontana.  This had to be the absolute ugliest course we have run in the 10+ years of races that she and the boys have ever run… and they have been to a lot of races!

Here is the scenic setting!

There was a graffiti lined cinder block wall on one side and the power lines down the center.

At least it was spectator friendly!

Annika ran her first race of the season at Mt. Sac.

Here she is in the 4K running up the dreaded hill.

I went for a ride thru Peters Canyon this morning.  This is the worst year of drought I have seen in the 17+ years we have lived in this area.  This reservoir is normally full and at least 12-15 feet deep.

This year, the reservoir is barely there.khare-blog-002

The only plant life thriving are the cactus.

We’re praying for a lot of rain this year!

Picture creds go to Annika!  She has lots of patience (and the pictures to prove it).
